MSF Art Exhibition

If you would like to flex your mental muscles there are plenty of creative things you can do to support MSF. We've seen some inspiring and imaginative fundraisers with some very original ideas. Below are a few to give you some inspiration.


A dare-a-day

MSF Mission possible


In 2014, Mandy decided to carry out a dare-a-day and named it Mission Possible!

Challenges included eating a sachet of cat food, cycling 12 hours non-stop and busking in her local high street as Elvis.



Mandy's year of dares raised an incredible £15,658 for MSF. That could treat up to 27,884 people with malaria.

Since 2011, Issam has been making work inspired by the crisis in Syria and has been raising awareness and money for MSF through nearly half a dozen group exhibitions, including Unearthed (2014) and Another Day Lost (2015).



So far Issam has raised £7,061 for MSF. That could buy 37 basic surgery kits enabling MSF surgeons to carry out surgery in a crisis zone.


Dress to impress

For two weeks Sara bravely decided to allow her children to choose her outfits and asked her family, friends and colleagues for sponsorship.

“I wanted to do something different, that I could involve my children with, and that would cause people to stop and wonder: 'Why is she wearing that?' They were really proud of helping to raise money for MSF,” explained Sara.



Sara raised £171, which buys enough Ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) to treat 22 malnourished children.
