Raise funds for those in need

For every R100 raised, we can feed two children a nutritious meal a day for a month. How incredible is that?

No matter what your idea, you can use it to raise funds for people in need with Ladles of Love. Celebrate your birthday or a special occasion by requesting donations in lieu of birthday gifts. Ask people to sponsor you for challenges you set yourself. Gather donations for something that you’ve made yourself, or raise awareness and invite people to sponsor you for events that you’re competing in, like the Two Oceans Marathon or the Cape Town Cycle Tour.

Our community of fundraisers have come up with the most incredible ideas to turn into fundraiser events – the sky’s the limit!

The amount of people this amount will sponsor to receive a meal, every day for a whole year.

Unfortunately, the number of people who need nourishment is growing. But just imagine how many more people we can feed with the help of more awesome projects like these. Together, we can touch so many lives. Here’s how to get started…

Fun ways to fundraise for charity

Look at some of the wonderful ways our community fundraise money for charity to inspire you. Each fundraising event is different, and every one matters. Do something you love – and change the world in the process!


Brendan has been a loyal volunteer at Ladles of Love throughout 2020. In August, he took it a step further by cycling all the way from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town over the course of the week, stopping along the route to raise further awareness for his cause, and sharing ideas for community feeding programmes along the way to make a lasting difference. So far, he has managed to raise about R150 000!

Skateboarding for Ladles of Love

Skateboarder Shaun made the most of Mandela Day, by pledging to skate 378 kilometres through Namibia, and asking donors to sponsor him per kilometre. This fun idea took off and he managed to raise an incredible amount – just shy of R40 000 – for Ladles of Love.

Exeter Half Marathon

Hannah and ten of her fellow students ran the Exeter Half Marathon in February 2020, raising awareness for Ladles of Love and asking donors to contribute to the great work we do. Together with her friends, they managed to raise almost R6 000!

Ironman in Weymouth

In September, Callum took part in a gruelling Ironman in Weymouth to raise funds for Ladles of Love – specifically to provide school kids in Cape Town with the nutrition they need to learn, dream and prosper.

What’s more, he motivated people to donate to his cause by partnering with Cakes Hannah Bakes. This popular bakery in Kirstenhof pledged to bake and donate a cookie for each R25 raised. Together, they raised almost R20 000!

Thank you for helping to raise funds for Ladles of Love. By giving your time and effort so freely in this generous way, you’re making a world of difference.

We simply cannot do this without you.
