Now that you know to create your store with your own custom logo, let’s cover some popular fundraising contest ideas so you can make the maximum dough with your store merchandise. For each of the following ideas, make it a requirement for attendees to wear your organization’s custom apparel in order to partake in the contest.
• Break the balloon
Place a slip inside all the balloons while inflating them and let the participants know one of these balloons has a jackpot. Whoever pops the balloon with the winning slip takes the prize home.
• Car Wash
Bring the following to the venue: liquid soap, buckets, brushes, sponges, lots of towels, hoses, a bucket for donations. Have volunteers wear your custom apparel and charge a set amount for each car wash provided. At the end of the event, choose the volunteer with the cleanest cars as a winner of a hamper prize.
• Bake Sale
Bakes sales are a hot favorite among those with a sweet tooth. You can restrict the event to just cakes or let members bring just about any type of baked goodies. Once all the items are sold, the proceeds can go towards the cause and since the participants wear your custom apparel, it’s more exposure for your brand.
Who doesn’t love to run for a good cause? Having participants run on the tracks wearing your custom apparel will give your brand the boost it needs. Place donations boxes at various spots so as to make it easy for everyone to contribute. You can even create a public event on Facebook to invite more people to the event.
Remember, the success of your fundraising campaign depends on how compelling the cause is. Take the time to tell your story and don’t forget to spread the word through social media. Your next customer could be a Twitter follower or a Facebook friend. If you have any questions about how urSTORE can earn you money, feel free to get in touch with us by dialling 1866.309.9353.
