More inspirational ideas…
- Charity Ball, complete with ballroom dancing lessons and performances by the drama, dance and theater departments of your school.
- Create a “Quarter Campaign” Eighty quarters add up to $20.00, the cost of two school uniforms for a young child to attend school. With 350 quarters (less than one quarter a day for one year) you get $120.00 for a one-month supply of porridge that feeds one hundred students.
- Cookbook Fundraiser with fantastic recipe contributions from parents and kids. Sell your cookbook to share good food and good news about Asante Africa.
- Auctions hosted by your club or group can include all sorts of treasures and gifts… from beauty treatments (manicure/pedicures), guitar lessons, tutoring, dog-walking or babysitting services…
- “Give It Up” campaign to ask students and teachers to give up things like Friday night takeout ($20) or a morning latte ($3), and donate the money instead. This reminds us all of how much we have to be thankful for and what we can do without for a short period of time to make a big difference for a child.
- What’s your idea? Car wash, garage sales, summer concerts, read a thons, collect change, Cold Stone/Chevy’s 10% sponsorships. Young people are eager to help, and with some adult support can make great contributions of the heart as well as the wallet.
