Worthy Causes Children Will Love To Help

Nurture your child's kind nature by getting him/her to fundraise with HootLoot this Christmas. Animals, people and the environment - all good causes that have thousands of charities across the UK crying out for support. Getting your children involved in charitable giving will teach them to connect to other people, animals and our planet and in the process build a sense of belonging.

HootLoot's fundraising platform is a fun way of doing it as they learn the basic principles of setting targets and invite family and friends.  

It’s very easy…

  1. Set a new savings goal by identifying a charity and a fundraising target.
  2. Create a personalised invitation. Children can manage their own campaign; design and write letters (e-cards), attach photos and choose whom to invite.
  3. Send email invites to a chosen list of recipients, with a link to your child's fundrasing page.  
  4. Invitees can donate through our secure payment systems. All the funds will be collected in your designated bank account.
