Bake Sale: This is an oldie but a goodie! If it’s your jam, see if there’s a place you can set up a table at an event or after a service. You could even post about it on social media and mail or hand-deliver your goods to people who are interested. Announce that all proceeds will go towards your goal.
Social Media: Make a Facebook post or Instagram story explaining your trip and why you’re excited for it. Then ask people if you can Venmo request them an amount, like $10. It takes the work out of it for them, and while it’s a small amount, it adds up!
Adopt a Box! Use our Adopt a Box graphic to ask social media for help. Each box equals a dollar amount, ie Box #1=$1, Box #17=$17, and so on. When people reply that they want a box, send a follow up text or message telling them the ways they can donate (our website, venmo, sending a check, etc.). Post updates occasionally, showing what boxes are still available. If you fill all boxes 1-50, the total dollar amount raised is $1,275!
