Should you choose to participate through fundraising, there are many creative ways to do so.
Project Free 2 Fly staff is happy to help in whatever way we can!
FOOD WITH A FOCUS
Host an informational brunch with 8 to 10 of your closest friends. Explain the mission of Free 2 Fly, and offer each the opportunity to donate to the cause. We would be happy to send a staff member to speak to your group about the mission of Free 2 Fly. Send your request to the email provided in the contact section.
CREATIVE SERVICE RAFFLE
Recruit a few friends to donate simple yet valuable services that many people could use. Sell raffle tickets for $10-$20 each (the higher the price, the fewer you have to sell, and the higher chance the buyers have of winning). Example services could include childcare for a weekend; one day of housecleaning; house painting, or some other special service. Encourage people to buy several by offering discounts for multiple purchases, such as 1 for $10, 3 for $25, or 4 for $35.
FAMILY SERVICE PROJECT
Get your family in on the fundraising fun! Ask 10 of them to raise $100 or 5 to raise $200. Talk to them about the mission of Free 2 Fly. This could be a meaningful way to involve kids and connect with family members through community service even from far away.
Explain the mission of Free 2 Fly to your Sunday school class or small group. Present it as a giving opportunity. We would be happy to send a staff member to speak to or write a letter to your group about the mission of Free 2 Fly. Send your request to the email provided in the contact section.
Spread the word about Free 2 Fly, ask for donations, and commit to either match each donation or give a certain amount with each donation. For example, give $5 for every gift of $25 or match every gift of $50 up to ten gifts.
SALE FOR A PURPOSE
Hold a yard sale, book sale, or sale on Facebook, and use it as an opportunity to spread the word about Free 2 Fly. Make sure your buyers know that all proceeds are going to support, nurture, and empower low-income women.
