Children's Miracle Network Miracle Balloons can be sold to your customers for a $1 contribution. Ask your customers to sign their balloons and display them in your windows, make them into mobiles, string them across your cash registers or use them to design a larger balloon on a wall. Have your sellers set goals individually as well as for your facility. A little friendly competition usually boosts sales.
Coin collection canisters
Display coin collection canisters in your business at highly visible locations for employees and/or customers to donate. Consider setting up two coin canisters and decorating them in the colors of two rival sports teams, like NCAA basketball teams during March Madness or NFL teams during the playoffs. Have a Miracle Bowl Weekend competition to see which one collects the larger amount.
Bake/food sales are easy to organize by themselves or along with another event. Baked goods, hot dogs and popcorn are popular and easy items to sell. For a different spin, invite colleagues to bring in food like chili or desserts for a competition. Sell food during lunch and/or breaks. The food that the most people buy is the winner.
The list of possible marathons is endless, and most have nothing to do with running. Use the following list of ideas or use your imagination to create your own event:
- Rock-a-thon: Participants secure pledges for the number of hours they can rock in rocking chairs.
- Jump-a-thon: Participants secure pledges based on how long they can jump rope.
- Walk-a-thon, Jog-a-thon, Bike-a-thon: Start at your facility's parking lot and follow a route around the community. Participants collect pledges for the number of miles walked, jogged or biked.
- Bowl-a-thon: Participants secure pledges for the number of pins they can knock down.
- Dance-a-thon: Participants secure pledges for the number of hours they can dance.
- Hoop-a-thon: Particpants secure pledges for the number of baskets they can make during a certain amount of time.
