Tips and Secrets
  Fundraising Tips They DON'T Tell You...

ALWAYS carry your pledge sheet with you - you never know who you'll run into.

Put the BIG sponsors at the top of your pledge form - $25 and up.  If you have a good feeling that a certain person (your boss, your favourite over-the-fence neighbour, the family you ALWAYS buy chocolate bars from)  will sponsor you BIG - make sure they are at the top of your pledge form.  The next person you ask for a donation will see the generosity and try to match it or come close.

ASK at work - "Does our company have a matching program?"  You'd be surprised at how many companies do!  Pat Semrok (Cool-Captain) just asked her boss - and the answer was YES!  They will match what she raises (up to a maximum.)

Not so good at approaching people??  Then check out these creative ideas!

One family had bananas at their Church and asked for a minimum donation of $1.00 each (the secret was to get the bananas donated.  I can help you with that!)

Ask your playschool/school/work/neighbours to donate their recyclable bottles from now till the WALK - just make sure you pick them up regularly.  People want to clean out their garages - it's a gold mine! We have families who have done just this and they have raised well over their minimum requirement!

Book a BBQ with Sobeys or M&M's - now's the time to get your name in.  It's not hard work, they supply EVERYTHING and the product sells itself!

There's TONS of ideas the MS Society can help you with!
