Sponsored Silence

I want to make a difference

One of the devastating effects of child exploitation is that a child can suffer in silence, feeling alone and trapped. Too scared to open up about what is happening to them, many children are threatened to keep their silence. 

Take part in your own sponsored silence this spring and help us to provide critical support for children and their parents, so their voices can be heard. 

Sponsored Silence 

Do you love a good natter or are you known as a chatterbox by your friends and family?! Surprise them all and get sponsored to take part in a sponsored silence! You choose your own time – 6, 12 or 24 hours. 

Digital Silence 

Giving up your screen time and social media for a good cause is quite a challenge. According to Smart Insights, the average adult spends approximately 2 hours and 31 minutes on social media every day.

Take a break from your phone or social media and get sponsored to take part in a digital silence. Why not encourage your friends to join you and take on a digital silence together? 

Plan your fundraiser 

Choose which sponsored silence you’ll do, how long you will do it for, if you’ll do it alone or ask other friends, family or colleagues to join you. 

Let us know

Send an email to Judith Thomas, our Fundraising Officer at info@ivisontrust.org.uk and let us know about your silence so we can support you.

Shout loud about your fundraiser! 

Firstly, set up your Just Giving Fundraising Page. Don’t forget to add a fundraising target, fundraisers who have a target can raise 46% more for their chosen cause. 

Share your challenge on social media 

When you’ve set up your Just Giving fundraising page, it’s perfect to share on your social media with your friends, family and colleagues. Use your social media to share your challenge and why you are doing it. Don’t forget to tag us @ivisontrust on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook.
