You can get involved and help MND Tasmania raise much needed funds & awareness by organising a Drink Tea for MND fundraiser!
All you need to do is Host a Drink Tea for MND event – anytime, anywhere. Any event (big or small), any activity, any act, can be a part of raising awareness of Motor Neurone Disease.
With our annual MND Awareness Week in May and MND Global Day in June now is the perfect time to start planning your Drink Tea for MND event. Give your event a theme or combine it with a staff meeting, birthday, anniversary or other commemorative occasion. You can tell people why you are hosting the event, add photos of the person in whose honour you are hosting the event and encourage people to donate their time, cooking skills, or even gifts for a silent auction or raffle.
Some theme suggestions :
- Cornflower Blue-get your guests to dress in blue or serve your tea in blue cups;
- Tea ‘n’ Treats - put on the kettle, bake your favourite treat and share it with your work colleagues;
- Takeaway-T in the Park- pack your morning tea in a bag, take your cuppa and spend some time relaxing with friends outdoors;
- Crazy Tea Party -don’t worry if your cups and saucers don’t match, mismatch them to make it crazy.
Enjoy a cuppa today in support of MND!
