At Cards or Die we are passionate about tackling social isolation and bringing people together with board games.
This year my aim is to offer one free booking per month to a charity, community interest or not for profit company. I'm aiming to raise around £60 per month through subscriptions over on KoFi in order to do this.
If I raise extra I will arrange extra events.
What can you do to help?
Donate. You can make a one-off donation or you can set up a regular payment. (Visit my Ko-Fi page and click on 'membership'.)
If you are a non-profit company interested in tackling social isolation then I would love to chat to you and provide a free board games session. You could book me as part of an ongoing event or we could work together to put on a special event your customers will enjoy. You could use the session for staff training or as a treat for your volunteers.
Spread the word. Tell people who you think might benefit or who are in a position to donate and support this project.
I recently ran a very successful fundraiser to run Board Games Events at The Welcome In Community Centre (you can check out the 4 events we are running on the Events Page). We raised £840, after paypal fees we had £798.93.
The costs for the events are as follows:
Staff time to prep food on friday 2.5hrs
Staff time in kitchen on day of event 5 hours (includes 1hr before and after event)
Staff time at front of house on day of event 4 hours (includes 1 hr after for clean up)
Staff costs total 11.5hrs x £18 (salary and on costs) = £207
Food = £30
Room Hire = £45
Cards or Die = £60
Total cost per event is: £342
