What are you going to do in a dress? Whether it’s running, baking, skydiving – the options are endless!
2. Set your fundraising target.
Aim high or start small! With every dollar raised, we are one step closer to helping educate girls.
3. Launch your page.
Your campaign headquarters are waiting for you – make sure you set up your fundraising page telling everyone why you're doing it in a dress!
4. Spread the word.
Share your story and a photo of you in your school dress! Make sure you tag @onegirlorg and #doitinadress to share your successes!

Pair up with a pal and double up in power! Recruit your family and friends to get the ball rolling.
6. Create change!
It’s time to show the world what you’re made of! Do your challenge in a dress and educate girls.
We've created a downloadable toolkit to help you with your fundraising! You'll find:
- Social tiles, banners and images to use when promoting your fundraising on Instagram or Facebook
- Thank you messages to share with your donors
- A background image to use on zoom (or whatever video platform you use!) if you're hosting a virtual fundraising event
- Downloadable 'bibs' to attach to an old school dress if you'd prefer to use one you already own
Stuck for fundraising ideas?
We've got you covered! Check out some of our top fundraising ideas to give you some inspo:
Are you a school or university student?
As students, you know that knowledge is power and education is invaluable. Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to receive an education. Wear a school dress for the 130 million girls around the world who can’t and support One Girl with your classmates or uni friends! Working as a school or university group adds extra fun and support with Do It In A Dress.
If you’re in school, make sure you get the OK from your teachers first to add a new event into your school’s busy calendar. If you’re in university, look into working with your residence college or student union – there’s a built-in team ready to be inspired!
Request a One Girl Speaker.
Once you have approval and a date for your event, we’d love to support you! You can request a One Girl speaker to talk to your school (in person or virtually) to help you inspire everyone about the cause you’re supporting. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your talk today!
Working with a big group means that you have strength in numbers! Think about what kind of event or challenge you want to do. We’ve got lots of ideas to get you started!
What’s the target?
Setting a fundraising target helps everyone work towards a common goal. Be ambitious or start small, the choice is yours!
Set up your fundraising page.
Setting up a donation page online is the easiest way to accept donations and track your progress.
Spread the word.
Now that you’re all good to go, it’s time to spread the word! Raise awareness throughout your school and university and get together to achieve something amazing!
Are you a teacher?
As a teacher, you know that knowledge is power and education is invaluable. Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to receive an education. Wear a school dress for the 130 million girls around the world who can’t and support One Girl with your students! Working as a school or university group adds extra added fun and support with Do It In A Dress.
Spread One Girl’s message.
Spread One Girl’s message! We would love to help spark your student’s interest for One Girl and girls' education by speaking to your school. We can tell them about our mission, why girls are out of school all around the world and how you, as a school, can help. Get in touch with us!
Getting students involved in coming up with ideas and planning fundraising activities is a great way to encourage creativity and leadership skills. Here are a few ways you can fundraise at school: Organise a bake sale, hold a mufti-day/casual clothes day, host teacher vs student activities.
Set a target.
To motivate students and get the ball rolling, why not set a fundraising target for everyone to work towards? A target helps everyone to stay on track and gets the school excited as you inch closer towards the end goal.
Do It In A Dress.
Once you have all spread the word about your activities, it’s time to host your event. Let students pave the way and help them as they exercise their leadership and management skills.
Share your success.
Once your school fundraising and activities are done, collect the money you have raised and send us a cheque along with some stories about how you raised this amount. We love to hear about schools and the hard work and creativity behind fundraising activities! If you need to make a donation via bank transfer, please send us an email at email@example.com and we’ll provide you with the details you’ll need!
Fundraising in your workplace?
You know that getting the work crew together for a good cause can be a lot of fun. Why not try organising a morning tea, movie night, or fitness challenge (like a yoga class, run club or boot camp) in your school dresses! Or you could nominate your boss to be a Boss in a Dress – get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
