2016 WALK BLOG #20 – Have Fun While You Fundraise

Wish Blog
Fundraising is a great opportunity to bring the community together and have some fun!

Gather your friends and family to act like kids again, all while you support Make-A-Wish! Be sure to take advantage of the fall weather with these carnival themed FUNdraising ideas!

  1. Concession Stands: Gather your neighborhood for a block carnival. Ask each family to create a table with a game, food, or item for sale! Ask all tables to collect funds for Make-A-Wish! Have fun, build your community, and share the power of a wish!
  2. Stick Around: Have your family, friends, and team members create their best ‘food on a stick’ recipe! You can’t have a carnival without some good eats! Ask each taste tester to pay a participant fee and vote for their favorite recipe. Be sure to award best liked and most creative recipes!
  3. Clown Around: Ask your family and friends to help but on a clown show! Have each performer get their best wacky or clown costume together. Gather you community for a comedy show, where viewers donate in favor of their favorite act! Count each performer’s total donation count, and crown him/her the winner!  

Remember our 6th Annual Susquehanna Valley Walk-for-Wishes is only 11 days away! There is still time to sign up! Join us October 30th at Zoo America for another fantastic Walk-for-Wishes! With your commitment to walk, you can share the power of a wish.

Calling all team captains: Be sure to check out our #walkwednesday blog next week for some pre-walk information! Please share your fundraising ideas with us! Be sure to tag us @philadelphiawish on Facebook and @MakeAWishPHL on all others!
