    Default Current Focus: Raising Money for Leukemia

    I've been putting my purse obsession on hold to focus on a matter that is close to my heart. I will spend the next 10 weeks focused on raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    The reason I am doing this is because my boyfriend of 4 years is a Leukemia survivor. Cancer affects so many people, and we could be so close to finding a cure.

    Please feel free to share any fundraising ideas that you may have. I need to raise a considerable amount of money in a short period of time. And if you are interested in helping by making donations, please PM me.

    Thanks!

    Aww, this is very nice of you. Congrats to your boyfriend, I wish him and you the best

    Are you part of a particular organization or you are doing this on your own? I ask because I worked as a manager for a restaurant for three years and we did numerous fundraisers. We would make a flyer for the organization and they would make copies and give them to anyone. They will come in to the restaurant and present the flyer or mention the even, at the end we would donate 10-15 % of the sales before taxes to the organization. But you can only do this if you have a formal organization because of the IRS.

    It would be a good idea to do raffles. One idea that comes to mind is "We will pay your bills up to ___" raffle. Ask neighbors to donate good clothes and stuff they don't use anymore and set up a huge yard sell.

    DH works for a company that works close to AHA and they have fundraisers very often. They do a lunch/buffet fundraiser once a month, they provide food, drinks and dessert for everyone that desires to eat and help AHA. But they usually pay out their pocket to cook the food and make the drinks, usually around 20-25 per person in his department. I don't know if this would work for you.

    This is such a good idea, and Congrats to your boyfriend.

    I've lost a few people that were very close to me to cancer, and I know the troubles that some of them have gone through with paying their medical bills, etc.... I wanted to try to raise money also, but couldn't really think of anything... Good luck with raising the money, and if you do get a good suggestion on how to raise money, I'd be interested in helping raise money up here in Columbus.... I know quite a few people who would be willing to donate.

    I've heard about this email thingie that says that if you forward the email to as many people that you can, "n" amount would be donated to that cause, since I guess it had some kind of counter/tracker thing...

    ... ok, well it made more sense in my head, but I don't think it came out right when I typed it.

    But do you get what I'm trying to say? It might be worth looking into.

    HTH!

    Hi there!

    Are you still doing this now? I'm interested to take part in this activity because a friend of mine is also a cancer survivor. She is healed now and is cancer free for 3 years and we would like to give back to the society by raising funds for others who are still battling the demon.

    Hope to hear from you soon.
