Orang-U-Friends fundraising ideas

It doesn’t have to be expensive to be an Orang-U-Friend
it must be lots of fun!!

Here are some ideas to help raise funds for orangutans by being an Orang-U-Friend for as little as a gold coin donation:

•    ‘Orange day’ – wear orange: wigs, hats, ribbons, socks, t-shirts, anything orange
•    Cake and ice cream stalls with cakes, slices and biscuits – sell to others at morning tea and lunch time
•    Jelly bean guessing competition
–    How many jelly beans are in the jar?
–    How many orange jelly beans in the jar?
•    Drawing or painting anything to do with orangutans
•    Creating cards, tea towels or aprons with an orangutan theme
•    A car washing day
•    A sausage sizzle
•    Face painting day
•    A Disco or dance

Hope these ideas help – if you need any more tips, please don’t hesitate to ask!

How Can You Help

There are lots of ways you can support orangutans and help ensure the survival of this precious ape.

Adopt an Orangutan

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction results in hundreds of orphaned orangutans, who rely on our care every year. You can help by adopting one. Their dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild. You can follow their progress through Forest School.
