Would you take a shower in a public fountain? What if your friends would donate $50 each if you did it? And then you agreed to post a video of the whole thing online? Challenge your friends to do wildly crazy things, record their antics and post them online. What’s in it for the dare accepters? The dare is a fundraiser for charity. It’s a platform for combining social good and great content. Friends challenge each other for donations to a charity and videos of the stunts are uploaded to the charity’s website or other forum created for the event. Some of the challenges could be, “David doing his sexy-as-heck dance”, “Matthew walks down a staircase in a handstand” or “Julian showering in a public fountain.” It’s not just raising funds in the ways we’ve known for years, it’s ‘I’ll do this fun, epic, amazing stunt and do it for charity.’
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.
