There’s a reason FUNdraisers begin with the word FUN!
At The Christmas Box International, we believe anyone can help raise money, whether you are gathering neighbors for a night of appetizers and hot cocoa or are celebrating in business casual style in your office. Make giving an event this year and join our Blitzen’s Bucks Campaign!
Host a neighborhood or office holiday party for friends (with a suggested donation per plate). Ask co-workers to participate in a “Dress Down Day” where they pay to wear jeans and t-shirts. Sponsor a Christmas Bake Sale, Game Night or Bagel Brunch. Give your customers an opportunity to donate through “Change Round-Ups” or adding $1 to their purchase. The ideas are endless, and imagination is strongly encouraged. Every child deserves a childhood.
Anyone can host a fundraiser, and we are here to help you along the way.
You can talk with our staff to get ideas about how your office, neighborhood or church can get involved, contact Gina Barker at 801-747-2201 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This tried and true classic is a festive approach to celebrating, whether in the office or in the home. Your guests pay for their plate or pass around a collection jar for charity. We can provide you with handouts and information to make sure everyone in attendance knows what their donation means. Call at 801-747-2201 for more information.
Change up the way your customers see change. Set up your business POS system to automatically ask customers to round up their total price of purchase to the nearest dollar of their choice. Watch the pennies add up!
We mean that in the best way possible. Did you know that in Seattle, thousands of people gathered to participate in the world’s largest snowball fight while raising tens of thousands of dollars for charity. They even broke a world record for the largest snowball fight.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Partner with businesses in your community to host fun events for an evening. Many restaurants will work with community groups to donate a portion of sales to your fundraiser. All that’s left to do is get the word out. All it takes is approaching the manager of a popular nearby spot and asking. And just to get you started, here are a couple of popular chains: California Pizza Kitchen, Texas Road House, Buffalo Wild Wings, Chick-fil-A.
A BETTER BAKE SALE
Who doesn't love some deliciously prepared baked goods? Frosting or sprinkles or both, there’s nothing like a bake sale to attract donations. To take it to the next level try different items for a week during lunch break, popular food stuffs such as hot chocolate, popcorn balls or churros.
Who doesn't love an awesome plate of pasta? Make an easy meal for coworkers and ask for a small donation in exchange for a wholesome, homemade meal during the workday.
CONCERTS AND SHOWS
Events are a great way to give something back while still fundraising...and there are plenty of different ways to use your high school auditorium to do so. Book a local band or put on a movie screening where you can sell tickets.
CHUCK YOUR CHANGE
Hold a competition between grades and see who can collect the most change over the course of a week, a month or even a single assembly. A front and center display of how well each class is doing, can help spur on your classmates.
DONATE YOUR TIME
Consider volunteering. Get a group together and canvas neighborhoods offering to complete small odd jobs for donations.
