Discuss with your Mini Vinnies Group about what types of advocacy would work best for your school and send the most powerful message.

Fundraising Ideas

Fundraisers commonly run by schools and Mini Vinnies groups include:


Guessing competitions (i.e. guess the number of jellybeans in the jar);

Casual days / crazy sock days;

Cake stalls;

Sausage sizzles;

Coin lines;

Chocolate drives;

Rice Day.

These are all good ways of raising money within the school. The best fundraisers, however, are ones which are new and creative, because they generate more interest and can therefore yield greater results.

Mini Vinnies


An example of a Mini Vinnies pledge taken by a Mini Vinnies group:

As a member of Mini Vinnies, I promise to make a difference in my world by:

• Caring for, respecting and loving myself;

• Strengthening my friendship with Jesus by praying each day and talking to others about him;

• Caring for others in my school and community by being a friend to those who are alone, in need or in trouble;

• Contributing to the happiness of my family through my help, respect, consideration, joy and kindness;

• Caring for, appreciating and enjoying God’s creation: the environment;

• Treating others the way I would like them to treat me.
