Football For CALM
PLAY (DIGITALLY) FOR CALM
FIFA or PES? Xbox vs PlayStation? Maybe you prefer the more abstract football concept of Rocket League. However you choose to get your virtual football entertainment, you can create a football tournament in support of CALM.
Charge an entry fee per gamer with the proceeds going to CALM (you can set up a JustGiving page here) and earn bragging rights for your next Zoom call.
Thinking of streaming the tournament live? Register your event so you can download our gaming pack full of materials for you to make the most out of your stream. Including our Gamers Guide to fundraising for CALM.
DON THE CALM KIT IN FIFA
If you are of the FIFA persuasion, you can now play with your assembled Ultimate Team proudly donning the CALM logo!
RUN THAT RAFFLE
Be inspired by the wonderful CALM ambassador and Twitter supremo Jonny Sharples who held a raffle for an England shirt signed by Tammy Abraham, Tyrone Mings, Nick Pope, John Stones & Harry Winks!
If you’ve already sourced the prizes, or you’ve got some mates happy to donate some, online raffles are one of the easiest ways to fundraise, especially using Raffall. It’s simple to use and set up, and they take care of the ticket drawing and other necessary stuff. You can also request a Letter of Authority from us to prove you’re after prizes for charity.
If you can’t head down to your local for a bevvy and some trivia, or host that quiz for CALM in person, there’s no reason you can’t do it from home.
Download Zoom or Houseparty and e-vite your pals, mates, buddies and mum – come on, she’ll be bored too. Then simply create a Just Giving fundraising page and drop your link into the Chat feature so people can donate. Oh, and don’t forget the questions! Team CALM is a great quiz team name too.
KEEPY UPPY CHALLENGE
No fans around? You can still knock a ball about!
Challenge your mates to a keepy uppy challenge, with an entry fee going to CALM. (Just make sure the valuables are stashed away!) Share it on socials and add a donate button to your posts. Tag us #KeepyUppyForCALM on Twitter @theCALMzone and on Facebook @theCALMzone.
MAKE IT OFFICIAL
Raring to go? Register your plan and set up a fundraising page for your friends and family to contribute to. We reckon loads of people would love to see regular updates and videos of your plans – after all, what else is there to do?
Then head to CALM Kit to order some digital CALM swag to help make the most of your fundraising on social media. There’s Facebook banners, logos and loads more.
JOIN THE FOOTBALL COLLECTIVE
It’s at times like these that we need to come together. And what better way than over something you love?
CALM Collectives are all about getting together, doing what you love and feeling better for it. Although that might not be face to face right now, our Collectives have active online communities.
If playing for your football team isn’t possible at the moment, you can chat, share encouragement, experiences, stories, laughs, failures and successes. Sound good?
Thank you for supporting us. You are a legend.
All done and dusted with your fundraising? Pay it into us, and don’t forget to tell us what you did so we can thank you properly. If you’ve been using JustGiving, or something similar, then don’t worry – it gets sent through to us automatically.
Thanks for being part of #TeamCALM and our Campaign Against Living Miserably.
