Kissing booths with pretty ladies or handsome men for charity fundraising have pretty much become extinct. They have now mostly been replaced by dogs which are the most popular “kissers”, although some groups have also used cats. In my experience, the dogs I have owned would lick/kiss you to death but getting scratched was the most likely result with my cats. This sounds like a great idea for animal groups but we have read both pros and cons on this so we recommend doing some research before you decide.
We have included a number of do-it-yourself fundraising ideas in this section that offer a break from traditional product sales. They were developed by groups just like yours in an attempt have a little fun with their fundraiser. Some of them are tried and true while others show a lot of creativity … and even wackiness in some cases. All of them are obviously not appropriate for every group, but sometimes, with only a little modification, your might find some fund raising ideas that are perfect for your group. If you have an idea for a do-it-yourself fund raiser you are willing to share with others, please send it to us via email. Include anything and everything you would want to know if you were hearing the idea for the first time.
