Children know best

No one is too small to change the world. No one is too young to shine brightly. 

This summer, you and your children can make a huge difference to people living in poverty. The enthusiasm and dedication of children is an amazing thing. Our Tearfund Stars resource will help you to fuel the curiosity and creativity that your children already have… and to put it towards raising money that will help transform lives.

Around the world, children like Oudo are suffering. Conflict, disease and the climate crisis are keeping millions of families trapped in poverty. But there is hope if we join together.

Tearfund Star success

Morelli family

The super-sweet Morelli family took up the challenge to be sponsored to give up all sugar apart from natural fruit for 40 days! The family smashed their target of £300 and ended up raising an amazing £1,052!

Sporty Sam

Sporty Sam from Scotland loves running and wanted to make a difference. He took on the mighty challenge of running 5km every day for 50 days (that’s a mind-boggling 250km). Not only did Sam complete every kilometre, he also raised £590 along the way.

Sweet siblings

Siblings Esther (9), Nathan (7) and Matthew (3) made chocolate apples and toffee apples, and set up a table at the end of their driveway in Northern Ireland on a lovely sunny Saturday. They were delighted that so many people stopped for an apple and donated to Tearfund.
