This is the information for 2019. The information for RAG 2020 will be added soon.

Raise and Give is the fundraising event at TeenStreet

At TeenStreet, we love sharing the blessing and giving to people in need because God has given us so much. RAG is our way of sharing this blessing! Before and during every TeenStreet, we raise funds to support a good cause, usually within OM, that will positively impact youth in Europe.

Last year, we did this by raising approximately 64,000 Euros for "Hope for Refugees" for projects working with refugee Teenagers and children in Greece, Italy and Serbia.

Hope for Refugees - TeenStreet 2019 

At TeenStreet 2019, we will again be raising funds through RAG (Raise and Give) for "Hope for Refugees" and projects working with refugee teenagers on the boarders of Europe.  

The money raised will help provide:

  • Backpacks, stationery, books, etc. and tutors to help with language learning
  • New sports and art equipment and contributions towards places to use them
  • Safe places where they can meet local teens and get to know Jesus, too
  • Starting and supporting other TeenStreets around the world

We want to see teens in other parts of the world to having a similar experience as we have at TeenStreet Europe. We dream of starting, or growing, TeenStreet in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, the Caribbean, the Balkan area and Nepal. Therefore, we want to use 20% of what we raise at RAG to support new TeenStreets.

So, whether you plan to run in the RAG race, perform in the talent show, or raise money in other ways, GOFOR IT— you will be making a difference!

Now that you know, how can YOU help? Try out your best tips and fundraise to bring Hope for Refugees!

Any money raised beyond the total needed for these projects will be used to fund similar projects in Europe. Thank you for getting behind this project – it really is bringing Hope to Refugees!

Raise funds for Hope for Refugees at TSRAG 2019 with OM UK

You can create an on-line Fundraising page for TSRAG 2019 This makes it easy for people to sponsor you online and you can track the total amount you have raised towards your fundraising target. Supporters who are UK taxpayers can also Gift Aid their donations (adding 25%).

Once you have confirmed your registration and place as a TeenStreet 2018 participant, you will be sent information about TS-RAG 2019 and information and guidelines on how to create your TSRAG 2019 Fundraising Page via a link on the OM UK website.

You can already be thinking of who you will share you page with. Once you have your page it will have its own web link which you can share by email or on social media. 

Once you have created your fundraising page you will be able to share your TS RAG Fundraising page with those who you are asking to sponsor you. That will mean that they can either make a one-off donation or they can also choose to register as your sponsor with your unique TS-link which is sent to you once your place at TeenStreet 2019 has been confirmed.

Once your place is confirmed, the OM UK TeenStreet Team will send you a unique TS-link which you can forward to your potential sponsors. If they use that TS-link to register as your sponsor, they will be sent an email once you have completed the TS RAG Race 2019. This will let them know how much sponsorship they owe. They then need to go to your TS RAG Fundraising page and donate the amount owed for your sponsorship.

The email the OM UK TeenStreet Team send you will have all of these details and a guide to creating your TS RAG fundraising page
