Anne Frank said, “No one has ever become poor by giving.” The very act of charity is the one that puts your heart at ease and provides peace and nourishment to your soul. A person only grows by giving. When it comes to giving – your age, income, occupation; these things don’t matter. What matters is your intention to give and to help those who are in need of help.
If you want to raise money for charity but don’t know how to, we have some fun ideas lined up for you!
- Have a bake sale
If you are good at baking, it’s time to whisk those eggs and prepare the batter – because you’re going to raise funds for charity by hosting a bake sale. You can bake cupcakes, cakes, cookies – basically anything that you’re good at baking and put them up for sale. All you need to do is set up a little stall; mention that you’re having the bake sale to raise funds for charity and start selling. You’ll be surprised at how much funds you can raise by simply having a bake sale. Remember to be as much creative as you can!
- Arrange a small movie screening
Yes, you read that right. You can set up a small movie screening and invite people from your neighborhood by setting up a small ticket price. You can then use the proceeds from the ticket sales to make donations to charity. All you need is some space to make seating arrangements for the audience, a laptop and a projector along with some additional materials. If you’re having a hard time downloading movies to show at the movie screening, you can simply opt for film streaming to show some really fun and interesting movies. There are movies from all genres available online to choose from to suit your viewing audience.
- Garage sale
The third thing that you can do is have a garage sale. If you don’t know what a garage sale is or how you can have one, click here to learn all about it. All you need to do is look around for things you don’t use anymore or never did to begin with. You will literally find hundreds of things lying around in your house which won’t be in your current use. Collect those things and put them out for sale. Use the proceeds from all the sales you make towards charity. It’s as simple as that.
- Have a car wash fundraiser
This idea is a really fun, simple and interesting idea. Gather your friends and form a group to arrange a car wash fundraiser. Gather the required materials like sponges and car wash supplies. Put up some attractive slogans and don’t forget to mention that the car wash is for fundraising to help the ones who are in need of help (this will attract more people towards the activity). Simply raise money by washing cars and put that money aside for charity only.
Charity is an act of kindness and devotion. If you help someone today; someone might help you tomorrow. Smile, give, have a big heart and learn to forgive to achieve eternal peace and happiness!
