Create a Virtual Event for Croí!

Our first priority in Croí is to protect and serve those living with heart disease and stroke, who are also at greatest risk if affected by COVID-19.  It is our duty to do what we can to slow the spread of COVID-19, which is why we have had to rethink what we do. We are now busy reformatting all of our activities and fundraising is no different!

The good news is there are still plenty of ways you can beat the cabin fever or stay active while raising money for Croí.  Your support has never been more needed and will help us provide the much needed support for those at greatest risk if affected by COVID-19.

Here is how you can get started:

  • Pick your event (if you are undecided, we have some suggestions below)
  • Complete our online form below so we can register your event and give you the support you need to make your fundraiser a success.
  • Set up your platform to collect donations (iDonate or Facebook Fundraiser)
  • Decide on your platform to conduct your virtual event (Zoom, Webex, Houseparty or Instagram Live to name a few)
  • Invite family, friends and colleagues to make a donation and join you at your virtual event

Here are just a few ideas to get you started:

  • Online Games Night – Gather your family and friends for a virtual Scavenger Hunt, Bingo Game, Pub Quiz or Card Game
  • Online Party – Dance your heart out for Croí – invite your friends for an online dance party and donate the price of a night out!
  • Virtual Movie Night Host a Netflix party https://www.netflixparty.com/ and have your friends donate to cost of a trip to the cinema!
  • Activity Challenge – Create your own virtual run, walk, cycle or swim, track your progress on your fitness app and ask your community to sponsor you along the way.  Or take part in one of ours. 
  • Coffee Morning – Gather your friends for a virtual “Coffee for Croí” while donating the cost of their weekly takeout coffee!
  • Virtual Collection – As we won’t be out at our local church or shopping centre collection this year, you can set up your own street or churchgate collection!

Luigi, our Community Fundraiser, will be able to assist you every step of the way, and we can provide you with fundraising materials to help support your event, such as:

  • Letters
  • Posters
  • Balloons
  • Wristbands
  • T-shirts
  • Sponsorship Cards
  • Buckets
  • Health literature
