When you have a fundraising project, who does the fundraising — you or your parents? I know your parents can be a huge help when it comes to fundraising. They can take your fundraising goods to work and to friends and help you raise a lot of money. Here is my question for you. Are your parents helping you or are they doing your fundraising for you?
You can still do so much when it comes to fundraising, even when your parents are helping out. You can call you relatives yourself. After all, how can grandma and grandpa refuse you? And you can visit the neighbours yourself. You will get to interact with others, use your enthusiasm to get others pumped about your cause, and see the happy smiles on people’s faces as they give to a cause so wonderful.
While your parents might be a key component to your fundraising efforts, you are the fundraiser. If you let them do all the fundraising work for you, you will be missing out on an experience to remember. Get involved in your own fundraising efforts and you will get the gift of knowing you are directly responsible for making a difference in the lives of others. It’s a lot more fun that way too.
