The Fundraising Blog
Here at Firewalking International we want your Fundraising Adventure to be easy and fun. Organising a Charity Firewalk or a Charity Glass Walk can be made a lot easier by reading these posts.
The Fundraising Blog is crammed with useful knowledge, hints and ideas to make it easy for you and your Fundraising Event. We answer a lot of the common questions and misconceptions organisers have. And we share a lot of stories from previous events as a source of inspiration for you and your Fundraisers.
We update The Fundraising Blog on a weekly basis so be sure to check to check back. Or better still, subscribe to our newsletter and be kept uptodate on our current musings. And if you have a question, let us know. If you have thought it, someone will do too.
