Hats off and salute to the noble cause of charity and fund raising. While ventures across the world spin trillion and gazillion of green bills each year as a turnover, their commitment to the society at large is well seen and honored. This is why most companies – big and small, indulge in corporate fund raising events and sagas. Should you too plan to do the same, and if your staff isn’t showing much interest- here are five fun ways to get them involved.
Will style and doll up for fund raising
The idea is to have corporate employees engage and market various salon services and products to team members they feel never ever like visiting parlors or salons. For a nominal fee, each team can market their services and products (salon based, spa, manicures and pedicures) at the fund raising event to bring in more money for the fund raising! Give them half a day and a counter each to set up their stalls- the more customers they get through their convincing marketing strategies and price points mentioned, the more they earn. The boss gets to check on the earnings and also motivates the team to do better.
Will cook and bake for the hungry
Everyone at work or maybe some of us at work are adept with baking and cooking. No wonder during lunch hours Henry and Julie’s tables are a thronging zone for the gang to bask at- their food is the yummiest little present from heaven to relish and talk about. Throw open a baking or a cooking competition; something light and easy which everyone would like to taste. The more food bought by other teams from a particular team, the more money they earn for charity. As a boss, you get to sample and savor each dish and announce the winner!
Will auction for charity
We all have knick-knacks and clothing or shoes and accessories at home or in the closet which wouldn’t be en vogue or of any functional use; instead of throwing them off, a good polishing or a touch up would be the best thing to do. Finally have an auction table, and on the lines of a luxe garage sale sell off what is displayed. The proceeds of the same would go to charity. Oh yes, each time the highest bid is given per auction, the team gets into a tizzy and dances to a peppy number.
Will sing and dance for charity
So you think you can dance like a swan and sing like a nightingale? It is time to flaunt those talents and in a quirky way, enacting a scene from a horror movie (yes, that is the twist). To watch each of these shows, a nominal fee would be charged- in addition to that, a couple of coupons have to be bought for drinks on the house and a plate of munchies to enjoy. Give this a night, and watch how the money rolls in- gather the families and friends too, make it public!
Will paper dance for charity
Paper dance with your favorite colleague, and your boss wouldn’t mind you getting a little cozy with someone special at work as well. Each couple though would have to place a bid. If they lose their predicting bid and are voted out before they assumed they would- the money they placed on the bid would be forfeited and sent into the charity box.
Here were five fundraising event ideas that are quite fun and nice. The winning team or members would be given a bumper prize, and this is a great way to market your own products and services of the brand or company you represent too!
