About StupidWay

StupidWay.co.uk chronicles a series of attempts to raise money for charity.

The aim is to raise a money and awareness for UNICEF and Macmillan Cancer Support.

All we need to do to raise £10,000 is to find 1000 people each willing to donate £10.  I know there are people who are reading this who can’t afford £10, but even if you can only donate £1, donate £1. You will still have helped, the StupidWay team will still consider you awesome and we will be another step closer to our target.

Why should you donate? Well, you’d be supporting three good causes. Also the more money that gets donated the more daft and possibly dangerous things the StupidWay team will attempt in order to keep you entertained. And if the challenges and shenanigans don’t inspire you to donate then how about attending one of our events? We’ll be putting on events here and there over the course of the year to keep the money coming in. If that doesn’t convince you, think about this: “…people who give money to charity are happier people that people who don’t give money to charity.” – Michael Norton (TED Talk)

At the end of the day, StupidWay is about bringing people together and making the world a better place. It’s the little things we do on a daily basis that make a difference, and if enough of us do a little, by the end of the year together we will have helped three great causes.

The story so far…

(according to the Gospel of Phill)

The idea behind StupidWay was conceived at around 4pm on the 31st December 2015. Raising £10,000 for charity seemed like a good idea at the time, and so I committed to it without really knowing what I was doing. Some people would argue that I still don’t know what I’m doing.

Over the course of January the website was developed, charities contacted, and initial plans for fundraising were drawn out. It was also the time that the idea of calling the project StupidWay was finally born. This was on the basis that “Raising 10k the stupid way” had a sense of rhyme and that there was a high likelihood of me doing stupid things to raise the money.

I then started working out how I was going to do all the daft things I had planned. I soon realised that I needed to recruit a team of idiots to help me on my stupid quest. And that’s where we are now.
