What is Roughtober?
In the month of October, we encourage our volunteers and supporters to go all out in fundraising for us.
In 2016 we raised $57,000 for Rough Edges during Roughtober. We equalled our record of last year!
Thanks to everyone who supported us. We are delighted with this result.
The money we raise enables us to operate Roughies with confidence, knowing that we will be able to cover the costs of operating in 2017.
Stay tuned for details of Roughtober Sleepout 2017!

Throw an event in Roughtober
Set a date in October and throw a breakfast or dinner for friends and ask them to contribute to Rough Edges. Or a fun-run, a bake-sale, or any other creative ideas you might have. You could even show the Rough Edges video at your event which allows friends to get know what Rough Edges is all about.
Get your work place involved
Does your work or a company you know support charities? Many employees look for ways to get their workplace to support their chosen charity through fundraising, grants, or through staff participation. Tell your company about Rough Edges and ask if they could become a corporate sponsor. Rough Edges is always looking for corporate sponsorship and we can provide more information to you and your company. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
