Fundraising Tips - Week 10
Week #10 – Get the Kids Involved!
Many schools today encourage kids to do community service projects, so your kids might find that working on a project that has to do with myeloma is a great way to honor a loved one and get that service commitment under their belt at the same time. Others are looking to do service in conjunction with a religious milestone like their Bar Mitzvah or Confirmation. Your child’s friends might want to get involved too, and can make it a bigger event. Here are some fun ideas you can use (or come up with some on your own):
Hold a 26.2 lap event or a 2.62 mile “mini-marathon” and get others to sponsor the runner. Similar events can be staged to mock the Century Ride or a triathlon. Get donors to sponsor the child by the mile or the lap.
Have a swim-a-thon, a spin-a-thon, or a dance-a-thon.
Host a party at a teen center.
Collect coins in a bottle at school. Arrange to spread the word during the morning announcements.
Have a car wash or bake sale.
Sell handmade jewelry.
