Abseiling is fun, exhilarating, and, in some cases, a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s something that you can do to get active and push yourself. And it’s also a fun way of raising money as well. So, how about using abseiling as a great way of fundraising for charity?! You’re sure to have loads of people who want to sponsor you for getting involved in this. These are some great ideas to help you raise funds by abseiling, either alone or in a group.
You might think about getting sponsored based on the height of the abseil. Or on the type of rock face you plan to abseil down. Abseiling can be dangerous, but isn’t always. However, the future you choose to go the higher the risk becomes. So, in that respect, you will make it a more attractive sponsorship prospect. Your friends and family will be prepared to sponsor you regardless. But, strangers or businesses may need a little more convincing. And that’s why it’s important to select a really challenging abseil in order to encourage more sponsorship.
Number of People Doing It
Another way to swell the sponsorship coffers is to make sure there are a lot of people participating. If you can get loads of people interested it will make the event much more of a spectacle. Think about it; 30 people undertaking an abseil is going to warrant much more attention than just you alone. That’s why it’s sometimes a good idea to turn this into a group event. You may even decide to use different teams and set each other time challenges or things like that. If you can add a competitive element to it, you’re going to add another dimension, and this will interest even more people.
Face Your Fear
A great way of raising sponsorship for abseiling is by facing your fear. If you are scared of heights, then this is a huge undertaking for you. And people are going to appreciate that. So, you are more likely to drum up sponsorship and interest if you do something that’s going to terrify you. Facing your fears is an important step in your life because it builds confidence and shows you can accomplish things. It’s also a fantastic way of charity fundraising as well.
