Some Unique Fundraising Ideas
A few years ago the Grand Chapter of Rhode Island Order of Eastern Star organized a “Rock-A-Thon” to benefit the Food Bank. Eastern Star members solicited the support of their friends and family for their rocking chair event. Events such as these are great models for online fundraising!
With this tool, you can engage your family and friends to include supporting the Food Bank as part of birthday, anniversary, wedding, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, or graduation celebrations. Similarly, this site can be used to encourage charitable giving during the holiday season or to commemorate family gatherings, special milestones and personal triumphs.
Friends Asking Friends is also a helpful concept for community service projects and workplace team builder programs and/or competitions.
The possibilities are limitless -- be creative and have fun!
