Let’s be honest. Some of us have the time and skill to be detail-oriented planners and meticulous executors. And some of us don’t (look at those hands shooting up). If you think you’re too busy or not skilled enough to create an awesome fundraiser, think again. When you create your Go Jane Give fundraising page, it’s easy to support a cause you care about no matter how much (or little) time you have to plan. Here are six of our favorite no-fuss, hassle-free, low-logistics fundraisers that will get people excited to donate to your cause:
Stay in on Saturday night. Stay at home on Saturday night and donate the money you would have spent to your cause on your Go Jane Give fundraising page. Send your page to family and friends so they can do the same or donate in support. Put your feet up and enjoy a relaxing night in.
Film your talent (or your kids). Get out your phone and film yourself or your kids performing their talent: playing an instrument, doing a dance, hitting a home run, telling Star Wars jokes or eating an entire apple pie in one sitting. Post your video on your Go Jane Give fundraising page as a thank-you to friends who donate to your cause.
Give up 3 things. Choose three luxuries (chocolate, wine, barista-made coffee, pedicures) and go without them for a week or a month or a year(!). Donate the money you save to your cause on your fundraising page. Send the page to your friends and family so they can donate too.
Go on a walk (or run or swim or ride a bike). Choose a date that suits you and commit to walk, run, bike, swim or otherwise move yourself for your cause. 10 miles? 50 laps? 100 kms? Send your Go Jane Give fundraising page to friends and family so they can donate to your cause in support of your challenge.
Shave your head. People love to donate when you offer to make yourself or someone you love hairless. Create your Go Jane Give fundraising page and commit to shaving your head or waxing your man if you reach your fundraising goal.
Clean up your town. Send your Go Jane Give fundraising page to friends and family. Let them know that for every dollar you raise, you and your family will spend a minute picking up litter around your town or in a local area of interest. Or offer a set amount of clean-up time if you reach your fundraising goal.
Plan a “staycation”. Actually, no planning needed! This is a dream for those of us that are logistically-challenged. Donate the money you would have spent on travel to your cause on your Go Jane Give fundraising page. Send the page to family and friends so they can donate in support.
