A local radio station reserves one day each year for the Pioneer Lions to read commercial advertisements “live” on the air which club members have previously sold to area merchants. The club receives 60 percent of the revenues from commercials sold. The fundraising activity continues from six in the morning until six at night. Two or more Lions man each shift along with the radio station disk jockeys. Lions read the commercials live, and tell the radio audience about who the Lions are and what we do in the community. The project is both financially rewarding and good for Lions Community Projects.Source: Longview Pioneer Lions (Longview, Washington)
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.
