Morning Teas are easy to organise and great fun to host. Be as creative as you wish or keep it simple. Gather your friends, family and work mates and simply put the jug on!
1. Sign up
Sign up online and create your own Morning Tea fundraising page which you can invite colleagues, friends and family to.
You’ll need to create a myOxfam account. Why? So you can make the most of being an Oxfam New Zealand supporter. Like a one-stop shop for all your Oxfam activities, myOxfam allows you to do everything from creating your own fundraising event page to tracking your donations and updating your details.
Already registered with Oxfam? Login first, then register your Morning Tea event.
Your $10 registration fee needs to be paid when you sign-up to host an Oxfam’s Morning Tea. This fee covers post & packaging of your Morning Tea host pack containing awesome Fair Trade goodies to share with your guests.
Invite your guests and spread the word! There are many ways you can invite your friends, family and workmates: print out event invitations from our website, send an invite email from your online Morning Tea page, create a Facebook event or simply call your guests to let them know the details of your Morning Tea. You can also advertise your event with our posters which will be included in your Morning Tea host pack.
When inviting your guests, it’s time to rustle up some support. Tell friends, family and anyone else who’ll listen about your Morning Tea event and what inspired you to organise it. Invite them to check out your fundraising page, where they can donate and leave messages for you. Keep them in the loop with social media updates. Don’t be shy: shout it from the rooftops that you’re putting the jug on to help end injustice and poverty.
You will receive your host pack in the run up to Fair Trade Fortnight. Your Morning Tea host pack will include some Fairtrade Certified™ goods including L’affare coffee, HealthPak drinking chocolate, Scarborough Fair tea, and Whittaker’s chocolate to get you started. There’ll also be some promotional materials to use and fundraising tips to make the most of your Morning Tea.
