You can also add a touch of global justice to your celebrations – whether you're celebrating an anniversary, birthday, retirement or wedding – you can ask your friends and family to donate to War on Want in lieu of gifts to you.

In a few simple steps you can create and personalise your own fundraising page and invite friends and family to make a donation. You can use an online fundraising page such as Virgin Money Giving or JustGiving. These sites do the hard work for you, sending the donations to War on Want and automatically claiming Gift Aid on donations - that's an extra 25% at no extra cost to you or your supporters!

You can create a page in less than a minute. Make it yours with a story, photos, and video and then share your page with friends. Then watch as the donations start rolling in!
