Why have a regular fashion show when you can give it a twist? Create a fun event for local kids by hosting a pet pageant. Find an animal-friendly locale (try a local park), and recruit students to show off their pets on the “runway” one weekend afternoon. You can concentrate your publicity on local grade schools or PTAs. Have judges award prizes (you can make sashes, or stick to catnip and bones) in lots of different categories: Silliest Pet, Slimiest Pet, Sleepiest Pet (you get the picture). Source: Prom Spot
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.
