This works well for groups of people who know each other e.g. schools, church, social clubs. Sell red (love), pink (like) and white (friendship) bows with a message. Use card stock (business card size) for personalized and anonymous messages attach desired color of bow with pin – we sold them for $1.00 each, raised over $350 in 4 hours. Each person can “send” as many messages as they want and the recipients get to wear the bows. Great for the ego! How to do it : 1. Have the sender write their name (if they want to); the recipient’s name; brief message and attach bow. 2) The organizers of the event distribute all bows and messages (i.e. cupid) 3) Recipient receives bow and message, wears bow, keeps message. Feels warm and fuzzy. You make money.Submitted by Daniela L.
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.
