Take a dip in the sea

How about a Christmas morning dip in the sea? Some people do this for free, but you can drum up support by sharing your post-dip-selfie alongside a link to your fundraising page.

Fundraise on Facebook

You could add a donate button to a Facebook post.  Perhaps friends and family won’t be going out as much this Christmas, encourage them to donate what they might have spent on going to the theatre, restaurants. Or ask for your Christmas presents as a donation
