Shine for ShelterBox

Friends enjoying a candlelit dinner

This winter, we're asking communities to get together and host a fundraising candlelit supper for friends and family.

When disasters strike and power lines go down, families are left vulnerable, wrenched away from comfort and light.

As you dine, you'll be raising money to provide emergency shelter for families who have lost everything in the blink of an eye.

Your events have the power to do more

Whether you're into marathon running, fancy dress or throwing dinner parties, you can transform a fun event with your friends and family into vital funds for ShelterBox.

Millions of families are currently living without proper shelter because of natural disaster and conflict. You can help change this.

Car rallies, cake bakes or sponsored silences – the possibilities are endless. By going the extra mile and organising an event for ShelterBox, you’re helping our teams go further.

You’re helping us go to the ragged ends of the world to reach the communities most in need. 

Let us inspire you

Stuck for ideas? Don't worry. We're bursting with ideas on how you can help rebuild communities after disaster strikes and create exciting events for your own community too.

Put your details into the form below, and we’ll give you everything you need to kick-start your event.

We decided to sleep in a tent all summer for ShelterBox because we wanted to help people in Syria and Gaza.
