This Unique Christian Fundraising Idea
Will NOT Make You Fat
Bake sales. Cookie dough. Candy. Every run-of-the-mill fundraising idea. You’ve been-there-done-that-bought-the-T-shirt. Me too. Ready to get off the street and out of the kitchen? Read on.
If you’re like me, you’ve been on both sides of the fundraising product equation: salesperson and potential customer. Either way, because you want to support the cause, it’s doubly difficult to resist the yummy products.
Maybe you’ve even tried some of the non-food-related fundraising ideas, like getting nickeled-and-dimed to death by a jog-a-thon. Or lugging a cardboard suitcase of light bulbs door-to-door. (Is my personal experience showing a bit?) Or maybe an elaborate ticketed event that takes forever to plan, and after expenses there’s not much left. Or selling coupon books to people who have hardly touched their book from last year.
Well, here’s a fundraising idea that requires NO shopping, mixing, chopping, cooking, cutting, wrapping, delivering, washing, cleaning, hiring, reserving, jogging, sewing, singing, dancing, coupon-pushing or any kind of running yourself ragged! Instead, you can stay home and spend some time with your family. Hey… if you still have a few bake sales “under your belt,” you can use the extra time to do a FUN aerobic activity!
Even more exciting is the fact that this fundraising product is not only about raising money. It’s also a great way to share your Christian faith.
Here’s how it works. Once your organization signs up, it will have its own sponsored web page on the Kids Talk About God website. This page will include all the free content of the Kids Click Menu. Your organization will also receive customized business cards promoting the special web page.
This sponsored web page will offer visitors the opportunity to sponsor your organization by giving a donation. Depending on the amount of their gift, each donor will be listed on this custom web page under Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond or Underwriter Sponsors. They can donate by credit card online via PayPal.
The members of your organization could promote this with any combination of different methods. Our recommendations are:
1) Send emails to your friends and family asking them to visit your organization’s special web page. Encourage them to enjoy the free Christian content and consider supporting your cause.
2) Carry the customized business cards with you, and hand them out to everyone you meet.
3) Place the cards in an acrylic cardholder and display it prominently on your desk at work.
4) If you prefer the more direct and traditional door-to-door type of approach, you could take a sign-up sheet and collect names and donations in person.
Your organization keeps 50% of the take. It sends the other 50% to Kids Talk About God, which will use the money to support its online ministry. Everybody wins!
This could be the only fundraiser you need all year!
