Become a Linchpin

Be a Linchpin for Trinh, and have fun raising funds

#Linchpin4Trinh is our fundraising group.
We called it that because a linchpin is something that holds the wheels on.
Your fundraising helps us keep the wheels on Trinh Foundation, supporting speech therapy in Vietnam.

Offer your support – in even the smallest way – and raise some funds for Trinh by joining our Linchpin campaign.

Become a Linchpin and join with others already signed up to raise funds and share ideas. Let’s have some fun fundraising and getting others involved.
Tweet us your ideas, your activities or call out for support using #Linchpin4Trinh.

We’ll get in touch with you to confirm that you’re a Linchpin for Trinh, and we’ll share some fundraising ideas.

There’s even a digital fundraising pack with signs and logos. And ideas to share your photos and stories about fundraising and being a Linchpin for Trinh.

How it started

We Linchpins are so passionate about Trinh Foundation and its work of supporting speech therapy in Vietnam. We know that all funds raised go directly to support the work.

Last year we wanted to get together and create an informal fundraising group, to have some fun doing all sorts of different things to raise funds for Trinh. We know that without funds raised by volunteers, Trinh Foundation wouldn’t be able to do its good stuff.

And as volunteer fundraisers, we didn’t want to be locked in to one specific method of fundraising.

Some of us wanted to do walkathons, others wanted to have cake stalls, and still others got even more creative to involve other people in fundraising.

So we thought, why not create a group of us to raise funds – in whatever way we like – so that together we can hold the wheels on: and the Linchpin campaign was born.

We all wanted to keep in touch with all of our fundraising volunteers, so that we could share great fundraising ideas and support each other while having some fun being creative. See what the Linchpin people did last year to raise funds
