Did you know that many local restaurants, coffee shops, yogurt places, salons will help you fund raise for your Buddy Walk® team? Designate a day where a portion of the proceeds go to your Walk team. It works!!
Fundraising Tip #5
Put out a collections jar at work or just encourage co-workers to donate to your Buddy Walk Team Page! Place a bowl of candy with a “Donations” sign next to it. If your company matches donations, advise your co-workers!
Fundraising Tip #2
Write and send a letter to your relatives and friends on your holiday list. Update them on what you and your family have been up to. Have the letter come from the individual with Down syndrome. Click here for a SAMPLE LETTER.
Fundraising Tip #6
Host a lemonade stand! Seriously, so easy. Serve Country Time Lemonade, get a grocery store to donate cookies, invite your friends and neighborhood, play music and have a good time!
Fundraising Tip #3
If you have a child that is in school, invite his or her classmates to walk on your Team! If they cannot participate in our awesome day of fun, perhaps they will be willing to donate. Not only does it encourage participation and fundraising, but it also promotes AWARENESS!
Fundraising Tip #7
Ask your employer if you can have a “Dress Casual Day for a Cause”. If your office has business professional or business casual dress, co-workers can make a donation in exchange casual wear! $5.00 to wear jeans? I am in!
Fundraising Tip #4
Every Penny Counts! Place a collection jar at your local/family gas station, grocery store, Sub shop, yogurt place, hairdresser, barber or work cubicle! The loose change adds up fast and gets you closer to your fundraising goal!
Fundraising Tip #8
Have a big ticket item or gift card donated and have a silent auction or raffle on your Facebook page! With the holidays around the corner, this is a HUGE deal!
