This week, along with my normal running/workout schedule and my mommy duties, I have been learning how to fundraise. Last week, I told you I joined Team in Training with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to do the San Diego Half Marathon on June 3rd. As part of the team, each runner is required to raise $2900. I am a total newbie at this fundraising thing, so I have been reading as much as I could find and I have been getting ideas. Here are a few of them:
· Virtual 5k
· Bondi Band Sale (love them!!!)
· Guest Hostess at local restaurants
· 31/Pampered Chef/Tastefully Simple Party
· Super Bowl Pool
· 50/50 Raffle
This is the list I have come up with so far. Many of the ideas, like the Zumbathon take a lot of planning—like finding the instructor and venue. The virtual 5k would not require a lot of logistical planning, but would require a great deal of technical knowledge that I do not yet possess. One totally crazy idea I read was about an auction where the highest bidder gets to choose where the runner gets a tattoo! If I get desperate, I may have to do that one, LOL.
I would appreciate any fundraising help or tips you have to offer. Have you ever done a fundraiser? What worked and did not work?
A dream is a wish…
