CHALLENGE OF THE MONTHfostercare2019-07-30T05:42:56+00:00
HERE ARE SOME WAYS YOU CAN HELP MAKE MONEY
Organize a Movie Party. Invite friends to watch a movie, could even be Instant Family (PG-13) or Annie(2014 version, PG), two great films with foster care as a theme. Make popcorn or bake cookies. Tell friends why you are inviting them over and ask for a $5 donation for a ticket.
Walk Dogs, or Pet Sit. Write a note to your neighbors and ask if you can pet sit or walk dogs sometime in the month of July. Tell them why you are working and raising money. It could lead to future gigs!
Water or Pull Weeds. Everyone loves flowers but maintaining flowers can be work. Write a note and ask neighbors or grandparents if you can help make their flower beds pretty! Maybe a neighbor is leaving town – you could help them our by watering.
Lemonade Stand. Simple and Effective. Put up a sign letting your customers know why you are raising money and start selling. You could even make some homemade cookies and sell those too. Sell on your block, or at a siblings baseball game. Who wouldn’t by cookies or lemonade when your there for two hours!
Car Wash. Almost everyone owns a car and almost everyone likes their cars to look good. Go door to door in your neighborhood letting them know about your service. Could be a fun activity with friends.
Play or Karaoke Night. Put on a play, maybe write your own even, or karaoke night. Make a poster and invite your friends and family. Put out a hat for donations at the end. Tell your audience why you are performing
Read. Read to little kids on your block. Make a book mark and give to mom of little kids you know. Say you are raising money for kids in foster care and ask for a $1 donation for each big book, or maybe $2 for a bunch of little books, you read.
WHAT OUR VOLUNTEERS SAY
“I am working to collect money for Allies for Teens in Foster Care. 100% of the money I raise will go to Christmas bags for kids in foster care or Microgrants for kids in Foster Care. The Christmas Bags will contain shampoos, conditioner, deodorant and other self-care items for teens as well as Target gift cards. They Microgrants will help kids get clothing and goods for school and extra-curricular activities.”
TOGETHER WE CAN
Thank you for being willing to help kids in foster care. If your child/ren would like to keep track of their volunteer hours for a certificate at the end of the month, please go ahead and let me know the number/s at the end of the month event on July 26th.
Kids may choose to raise money which will benefit the self-care Christmas Boxes and Microgrant programs of Allies for Teens in Foster Care. Feel free to print out the middle page and cut it out. Kids can use for their fundraising activities.
I truly believe all the kids could benefit from this July Kids Volunteer Activity. Thank you for your support.
