Hey Scarleteen!

I am hoping for some brilliant ideas from you for how to go about doing some fundraising with my University sorority. I have just joined and thought it was an awesome way to get some money raised for the best sex ed site on the web.

We are having our first meeting this Thursday where I will bring it up and see how the girls feel about it. My only concern is that it's not technically local but we do a lot of local fundraising and international fundraising is good too! So, anyways, I was hoping I could get some ideas both on the best way to bring it up to them and also on some fundraising ideas that I could bring to the table to help people understand what Scarleteen is.

So, this is really open to anyone with ideas because as much as I know I really want to do this I'm not very good at coming up with creative and doable things for fundraising. The more ideas the better! :-)

Thanks so much!
Vikki

I'm just bumping this up as a reminder. Our next meeting is the 15th and I was hoping to have some awesomeness by then :-)

Sorry to be late on this.

One thing to think about is a house party of some kind: that's something a lot of folks do for fundraising. Basically, you have a bunch of people over, have some nice snacks, do some kind of talk or presentation on what you're raising funds for, then do an ask.

Since you're in BC, something else we could consider is connecting you with the local sex educators I know up there who are also Scarleteen supporters, who might be willing to come and give a talk on sex ed or do some kind of sex education, and then you could do an ask?
