Fundraising Ideas

Some ideas for fundraising that have been successful for other riders:

bulletSell T-shirts.  Come up with your own design, or use ours.  for the official artwork.
bulletHold fundraising events.  One Big Fix rider raised money with a taco-eating contest at a local restaurant. Others held dances and parties.  Two Wheels North riders held a fundraising century ride.  Remember that donations are tax-deductible!
bulletRaffles.  Find a local merchant who will donate merchandise and hold a raffle.  for  help setting up online ticket sales.
bulletFriends and Co-Workers.  Ask your friends and co-workers to chip in.  Check with your employer to see if they will match donations.

The key is to be creative and to be proactive.  Many people are more than willing to donate, but they need to be asked.
