Give a Tent for Lent is a fundraising campaign that invites churches and their congregations to get together and raise money for ShelterBox, during Lent.

Get your church to take part in the challenge and raise $500 or more over Lent. This amount is equivalent to the cost of a ShelterBox tent and to help provide the space for a family to call home.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED


We invite you and your congregation to help us provide shelter for a family in need.

The support we have received from Christian groups over the past twenty years has contributed to our ability to help over a million people in desperate need, to recover from disaster.

In 2019 your support meant we could reach more families caught up in disaster. In 2020 we’re hoping that you will help this campaign grow even more.

For 2020, we are inviting churches from across the nation to take part and raise $500 or more over Lent. This amount is equivalent to the cost of a ShelterBox tent and will help us to provide the space for a family to call home.

Between Wednesday 26 February – Thursday 9 April 2020 we are asking you and your congregation to:

  • Hold Lent lunches
  • Collections
  • Coffee Mornings
  • Jumble sales, cake sales and Tombola’s
  • Inspire us with your ideas

Every penny you raise will help us to provide tents and other aid items, such as solar lights, water filtration, blankets, pots and pans.
