I want to do a fundraiser to help my local animal shelter, but I'm not sure what kind. Any suggestions?

  • Sell your old things for money which you don't need anymore.
  • Ask your friends and relatives to donate some muney
  • Get yourself and some of your friends employed somewhere for a part time job
  • Ask a local NGO for HELP.
  • Publish it in a local newspaper
  • Also publish it in your school newspaer

Hi Cierra,

See below for some easy fundraising ideas:

  • Ask your principal if you can sell refreshments at school concerts, plays or sporting events, and donate the proceeds.
  • Organize a car wash with your sports team, club or group of friends
  • Host a spaghetti dinner- each family in your class would volunteer to bring pasta, bread, drinks, etc. and then you would collect a small donation to attend. The dinner can take place at a house of worship, community center or school gymnasium.
  • Consider holding a book sale. Speak with family, friends, and peers or create fliers asking community members to donate all those books collecting dust on bookshelves.
  • Organize a benefit talent show. Encourage your peers to take the stage for the cause, invite those in your community to come out for support, and ask for a small admission fee.
  • Hold a penny or recycling drive. For the penny drive, you would place containers in local stores, restaurants, etc. The recycling drive would involve students bringing in old cans and bottles to collect at your school, turning the bottle returns into a donation.

Bottled Water

Tap water is found to be just as clean as bottled water, tastier, and less expensive.Plastics bottle production uses extreme amounts of oil (enough to power thousands of cars per year), pollution, etc. to produce a bottle only lasting momentarily. This bottle is then discarded and left not decomposing for thousands of years. Besides boycotting the companies playing us in this hoax, what else do you suggest we do to stop this scam?What methods of boycott can be proven by documents?How raise…See More

Pesticides

Pesticides are killing the bees and affecting many other species negatively, yet if we stop them, because of increased monoculture, specific grain pests would ravage the fields and eat everything in sight. Food would not be capable os sustainably being grown. So then, the question becomes, how do we stop the bee deaths and continue the successful farming without pesticides agriculture relies upon?See More
