Organise a fund-raising event for a worthy cause
Raising money for a good cause can motivate people to participate and to donate.
-Think of a creative way to host a charity night.
-Encourage lots of people to get involved, help put on the event and spread the news by word of mouth.
-Regardless of what type of event you put on, put out a donation bucket or take up a collection for people to donate a little extra.
-Talk to the organization you are fund-raising for to decide on the structure of the event.
-Contact volunteers to help with the charity night. Ask the charity organization to put an advertisement for volunteers in its newsletter.
-Ask local businesses to support the charity night. Ask them to donate raffle items, prizes, food or services to the event.
-Decide what kind of audience you want to target for your event.
-Post signs at the location of the event to direct people.

Why fund raise?
Often, budgets get cut, or less than ideal family situations mean that children have to go without things or activities that their classmates receive, and later life opportunities may be diminished because of it. Some associations don't have a lot of money or resources, so they often rely on kind people to raise money by holding or taking part in a fundraising event. There are, unfortunately, needs of great variety all around us, and fundraising will most likely be an aspect of our lives for generations to come. But raising funds for a cause has a lot more benefits than taking care of an obvious monetary need.
What better way to help a person to feel empowered than to allow them to help raise the funds needed for a cause that will benefit them?
