What is MaaMonth?

MaaMonth was started in 2018 as a national initiative to raise money for Maa’s non-profit work. Societies across the country compete against each other every February to raise the most money and earn MaaMonth Champions title! We currently have 35 societies on board from across the UK, ready with a month packed full of fundraising events. The money raised helps Maa to run essential health camps and maternal care seminars in rural areas of Bangladesh. To get your society involved in MaaMonth click the ‘register now’ button, and for more updates follow us on Instagram!

MaaMonth is also a wonderful opportunity to showcase your society on our social media platforms. We have a following of more than 16,000 on Facebook, and 1,000 on Instagram. By taking part in MaaMonth, your society will have exclusive access to Maa’s audience; allowing you to publicise any events, fundraisers and campaigns and gain some well-deserved recognition for your society.

Fundraising Challenges

This year, we appreciate that the way we fundraise to support our mothers in Bangladesh may have to adapt to the current circumstances. That’s why we’re inviting you to take part in our MaaMonth 2021 sponsored challenges. 

You can choose to complete a sponsored challenge of your choice and #DareToBeaMaazing! 

To make things more fun, we’ve grouped the challenges into four themes, and will be highlighting each theme week-by-week throughout MaaMonth – there are prizes up for grabs each week.

The 4 Challenge Themes

  • Week 1: Physical Challenges (running, push ups, steps, climbs etc.) 
  • Week 2: Food challenges (Naga wings, shakes, spicy noodles, vegan, one coloured food for a day etc.) 
  • Week 3: Week without  (not using social media, give up sugar, sponsored silence etc) 
  • Week 4: Best and Bold  (chance to win the most creative challenge award!)

FAQs

MaaMonth takes place every February and concludes with the announcement of the MaaMonth winner at our Grand Gala event in March!

Getting involved is easy! Register your university using the links provided at the top and bottom of the page.

Prior to MaaMonth being established, MaaWeek took place at a number of different universities across London. To ease organisation between different universities, we decided to create MaaMonth so universities had more flexibility to organise events with the times that suited them best. 

You can fundraise for Maa all year around and we really appreciate your effort! 

Whether you want your MaaMonth to just be a day of bake sales or a jam-packed month full of events, we’re happy with any and all fundraising efforts. The reason it’s called MaaMonth is to provide you with the flexibility of doing events whenever your timetable allows. 

For our first MaaMonth, we had Bangla societies from over 15 universities across the UK taking part. But anyone can get involved in this month of fundraising! Just register your society to let us know you’re interested.

MaaMonth is the perfect time to gain experience with event organisation and teamwork. By raising money for us, you’ll be able to gain skills and meet people you otherwise wouldn’t! It’s the perfect chance to step outside your comfort zone and support an amazing cause. 

Anything you want! Previous events have included games nights, bake sales, food festivals, spoken word nights, hikes and more! It’s a great opportunity to get creative and be in with a chance of winning the Most Creative Event award! 

Societies should try to have an outline of their planned events as early as possible. This will help us create a schedule for the month and allow us to provide the best publicity for your events.

Use the ‘Register Now’ buttons at the top and bottom of this page and we’ll guide you though the next steps.

We can provide you with money buckets, Maa t-shirts, leaflets and any other promotional material you may require. Just get in touch and we’ll be on hand to help.
