Give every person or child in your class, club, or organization a plain unmarked envelope. The envelopes must be identical. Ask them to place a coin or note inside the envelope, seal it, and hand the unmarked envelope to the organizer who staples a corner to a cardboard tree. To play the game a paying customer (supporter) chooses an envelope (but is not allowed to feel before choosing). They win whatever is in the envelope. It could be a note, a penny, a dollar, or more!! Give it a go, its always a sell out. Easy fundraising idea!Contributed By: Carolyn White
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.
