Still one of the easiest way to collect money and spread the word are the social media channels, especially Facebook. And its so easy to raise money via Facebook.

3. Become creative on your own
CHALLENGE YOURSELF. Set yourself an ambitious goal and ask friends, family and coworkers to sponsor you.
Birthday? Wedding? Anniversary?
Why not use your special event as a way to raise funds. Rather than a gift ask people to donate to MVI instead.
Host a pub quiz or bingo night at work or a local pub and promote amongst your friends, colleagues, classmates and network.
Invite your friends to a Greek night – dinner party – cook up some delicious Greek food and ask guests to contribute 10 EUR to MVI.
With dishes like Dakos, Moussakka or Souvlaki and some Ouzo and Raki as an authentic aperitif your dinner will be a great success.
Pop up kitchen
Host a pop up syrian, iraqi or pakistani kitchen – connect with the local refugee population in your area, empower the family and fundraise for our organisation. Have prepared some delicious food and ask guests to contribute 20 EUR to MVI.
Run for MVI
Join any running event or set your own goal. For every kilometer you run, find someone who will donate 5 EUR to MVI.
