This idea is to search out historical buildings or homes in an area. Map the course and take a bus load or two of people to visit these places. A tour inside is a must and get permission of course. You either get a spokes person to tell the history or search it yourself if no one else is available. Have a bus commentator, preferably someone who knows the area and some history. Make one of the venues a stop for morning tea and lunch. Seek giveaways for passengers according to the theme. 20’s, 30’s or whatever. Timing is crucial and must be constructed before the actual day. This is a fun day and a great profile for your fundraising cause.Contributed By: Judy B, North Haven Hospice, Tikipunga, Whangarei, New Zealand
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.
