Fundraising Tips

For the Office: Hold a dress down day. Employees can wear jeans by paying a 3-5 dollar fee. The funds raised can support your strides team!

For Your School, Daycare or Church: Tree of Hope- Paint a Large Tree with a lot of branches. Hang the tree in a hall way or lunchroom. Sell Pink Ribbons and place on tree as leaves. Write names of loved ones on each ribbon!

Friends and Family: Create fun t-shirts with catch phrases such as "Great Boobs Are Worth Fighting For" or "Fight Like A Girl" and put a graphic of boxing gloves. Sell them for 10 or 20 dollars.

Youth: Dimes Make A Difference: Give a children 16oz water bottle and ask them to collect dimes. Each bottle holds about $92. Work with your ACS office for each kid to fill the bottle gets a prize!

Community: Car Wash- Get your team together for a local town car wash.
And don't forget the easiest way! Just ask! We talk to tons of people everyday. Pick one day and make a plan to ask everyone you see or even half the people you see for a donation to support you in your fight against breast cancer!!!
