Here’s how to get started on your Superhero journey!
Raised so far
Although things look a little different this year, there are still plenty of “virtual” ways to get involved with Superhero Week and support our Bear Cottage Superheroes.
At school or preschool
It’s time to get creative! Students can “get their capes on” and dress as their favourite superhero for the day for a small gold coin donation or get sponsored to do a good deed around the house!
Why not get sponsored to do a physical challenge – how many super star jumps can you do? Get pumped doing push ups for a gold coin donation for each one.
Host a virtual contest to “vote” for the most creative home made Superhero costume. Students can make a donation online to enter and post a photo. Have a prize for the winner!
Ask students to share stories of the Superheroes they know and why they are inspiring! Check out our Resource Kit for lots of fun superhero-themed activity ideas.
Get into the spirit by hosting a virtual superhero-themed party online with friends and family. Encourage people to donate online and send us your best dressed photos. Our resource kit also has colouring activities and superhero masks in case you’re looking to get crafty one afternoon at home.
Mufti day and fancy dress
Hold a fancy dress day or a mufti day at school. As an incentive, award prizes for best dressed or most creative - it wouldn’t be Superhero Week without Superhero fancy dress!
Let your pupils model their Superhero outfits at a fashion show, selling tickets to parents.
Ask your friends to bring along a breakfast dish and hold a breakfast at school, work or home.
Pay to play: recall all that trivial information and put it to work at a Superhero Trivia Night at home with friends or with colleagues at work.
Ask local companies to donate prizes and sell raffle tickets to colleagues, friends or at school.
Everyone brings a plate, sell the scrumptious sweets and donate the proceeds. Superhero cakes raffled at the end of the day.
Use our online template and charge a gold coin for each entry.
Ask your school canteen to sell Superhero Snacks on the day. Donate the proceeds.
Screen your favourite superhero film
Hold a lunchtime event and ask for gold coin donations.
Get your pupils to draw and paint their favourite superhero masks and faces. Showcase and auction the artwork at an exhibition for parents. Boost revenue by gold coin entry.
For a small donation, offer your pupils the chance to bring in a favourite comic to read for story time instead of a book.
Schools could run a sponsorship program doing odd jobs and helpful deeds for those in the local neighbourhood. Wash dad’s car, help Gran in the garden, wheel out the bins for an elderly neighbour—it’s all about helping someone else and raising money at the same time.
