i live in australia and we just went through cylcone(hurricane) Larry. I work at an animal shelter and a big tree just fell on one of the kennels and just totally ruined it and an exercise yard for another kennel. they just had to spend all this money on rebuildeing a new kennel and yard. we decided that we are going to have a secret fundraiser and then suprise them. the only problem is that we dont know what to do. if anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.
maybe the shelter workers could all get together and go around gathering things for a garage sale. or have a bake sale. there are also car washes and candy sales that you could put together to raise money. some people do craftwork, and would be more than happy to donate things that they know will be put towards a worthy cause. good luck to you !
I just did a little charity work for teachers appreciation week. I typed up a letter with the school name and tax ID # and asked different restraunts and businesses for donations. I was soooo shocked at how many people replied to do a good deed and get the tax write off for next year. maybe you could try that.
