Novel Fundraising Idea That Boosts MoraleJustin Bowman
Church and school organizations are always struggling to find ways to raise money that will help support their goals. From buying new uniforms, to paying for special trips, fundraising is the only option most have. Selling over-priced cookies, candy, and wrapping paper seldom achieves the goals and offers little more than a few dollars for all the effort expended. What if there was a way to raise a tidy sum of money that was also fun and boosted morale?
Big heads are a fun and unique way to show support for your school or team, while raising that much-needed capital. As a fundraiser, it offers fans and supporters an exciting way to participate in not only the fundraising effort, but, by showing support at games, contests, parades and other events.
Big heads are cardboard cutouts of a face — in this case, the players of your team or members of your club, mounted on a stick. They sell for a reasonable price, a portion of which goes to the organization, and they can be used over and over. Fans get to wave the face of the team member they want at games and other activities. Players get a kick out of seeing their face, or dozens of them, in the crowd.
Organizations can benefit greatly from this program, and without all the order-taking and hassles associated with many other fundraising activities. The next time your school or team needs to raise some cash, consider cardboard cutout faces of your team as a fun way to achieve your goals.
