Forums - General Discussion - Fundraising ideas on going to Vietnam

I'm going to Nam this upcoming Summer for a Mission trip. Now I feel terrible asking anyone for money so I'm trying to come up with beneficial ways I can raise the money. My thoughts are... Birthday and Christmas money, ask anyone who gives to me to put it in the fundraiser. Then my uncle owns a farm, ask him if I can work hours there and instead of being paid put it towards the fundraiser. Any other ideas? 

 

The church wanted me to go around asking people I know because "it is their calling", and I can't say this will be helpful to myself or anyone else because I've never done anything like this. So ideas would be great.

host a massive tekken tournament. tell them the first price is $1000. But that they need $100 to buy a slot.

THere will be glorious battles.



Just win the lottery.
Easy.

On, to the next problem.

Create a gofundme campaign.



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

Stop being a lazy bum and get a job?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

He did say he would work on a farm, that is harder work than any other job you could possibly get.

Work on a farm when its 90 degrees out and your bailing straw, or be on a farm when it is -20 out and you have to keep things from freezing and breaking and still feed the cows.

Let the church fund your Mission trip?

Or are we talking about a workation with emphasis on free time?

Get a jobs with no entry barrier like security or waiter etc and save that money.

Vietnam is also quite cheap - so you do not need much money.



Sell your video game collection :P

Or maybe make a $30 gift hamper, with 50 raffle tickets. Then sell them for $2 each. That's $70 profit.



Do you have a plan of estimated costs? Ho much do you need?

Lol, I have two jobs, but they really want this to be a fundraiser. I suggested to them that I pay by myself because I felt bad, but they're mission is also to get other people involved through charity. I don't mind, I know I borrowed my brother money and instead of paying me he can donate it to this. Same with Christmas, anyone can donate it, I wouldn't mind.

I was looking into this. I don't know what I can offer in return of people wanting to fund this.

Yes, around $3,500 (give or take if other gals/guys going with contribute more or less than their amount). That is paying for a ticket there-back and people leading the mission. I've already put in $250 as a mandatory amount, then my brother should pitch in around 270, maybe some Christmas donations, birthday, and anything I can't fundraise I will pay for.
