World Cup Sweepstake

Join in with the competitive spirit of the World Cup this year with this fun and easy sweepstake. Getting your team ready for kick off is super simple — just follow these steps before the first game on Thursday 14th June 2018!  

  1. Decide how much you want to charge for entry to the sweepstake, we suggest £2-£5 per country, but choose whatever amount you would like!
  2. Choose a prize for the winning country, it could be half the entry fee (with the other half going to ActionAid), or you could find an alternative prize like a hamper or a voucher from a local company, so all the money you raise can go straight to ActionAid. 
  3. Cut up all the countries on the first page and place them in a hat.
  4. Ask everyone in your office, your neighbours or just friends from down the pub to pay their entry fee and draw a name from the hat at random. Write down who draws which country on the second sheet of your sweepstake. 
  5. When the World Cup Final is played on 15th July 2018 you’ll know who is the winner of your 2018 sweepstake!  

Don’t forget to send us the money you raised so we can put it straight to work, helping to transforming the lives of women and girls around the world.
