Fundraising needs to be FUN...not only for your prospective donors, but for YOU too! We've put together (with the help of some team captains) a list of fun-filled events your team could host and/or interesting items to sell.
Be sure to take photos of your events and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and if you upload them on Facebook, please tag us!
