There are lots of ways to get involved, from having a snowflake cake sale to organising a snowflake crochet get-together. Email your fundraising question to snowflake@home-start.org.uk or check out our fundraising guide.

If you are running your own event, taking part in a fundraising challenge, or simply want to ask your friends and family to donate, then set up your own fundraising page.

You can also support the Snowflake Appeal by buying our snowflake merchandise including bunting, hairbands, Christmas cards and more. Browse our shop.

Make a one-off gift of whatever you can afford by clicking on the ‘make a donation’ button. Or you can donate to Home-Start UK in a quick and easy way – by text message.

Just text "HSUK15" and the amount you would like to donate (for example £2, £5, £10) and send your text to 70070.

IMPORTANT: if you want to donate to or fundraise for a particular LOCAL Home-Start, rather than the national charity, Home-Start UK, please contact them directly. Find their details using our map.
