The Big Give Christmas Challenge will run from Tuesday 3rd to Tuesday 10th December 2019.

How does it work?

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is the UK’s largest match funding campaign. AzuKo has been allocated a 'matching pot' to double donations made by our supporters. This means that there’s no better time to donate to us. One donation, twice the impact.

There are two ways to get involved with our campaign this December:


Tune in to our live broadcasts from Bangladesh, and submit questions directly to our team

Live broadcasts

We’re raising money to train 240+ women in 2020 to build for safety in one of the poorest parts of Bangladesh. Many houses are ill-equipped to face the growing number of natural hazards, including floods and storms. We offer simple house strengthening improvements, and we empower women to make that change.

We’ll be broadcasting live from Bangladesh:

  • Tuesday, 3 December - The need for our work

  • Thursday, 5 December - What our build for safety training entails

  • Monday, 9 December - Our impact

We’d love you to join us and to submit questions to our team, local partner and communities, which we’ll answer live.


Host a Christmas bake sale at your office, school, university or in your community

Taking part in our bake sale is so simple to do:

  1. Pick a date between 3-9 December 2019, invite your friends/colleagues to take part and pop it in your team diary

  2. Get baking

  3. Sell the baked goodies and raise vital funds for AzuKo

  4. Vote on the winning bake (we’ll send an AzuKo prize for you to award ‘star baker’)

  5. Make sure you post/tweet your event on social media so we can share

Donate the proceeds between 3-10 December to AzuKo via the Big Give website. Your donation will be DOUBLED!

Donations made by cheque, BACS or via Virgin Money Giving won’t qualify for doubling. Your donation will only be doubled if you use the Big Give link we provide just before the challenge starts on 3 December.
