5 Fun Seasonal Event Ideas

1

Holidays

People are busy during the holidays, but not too busy to share and give to the less fortunate. These events will get people into the holiday spirit and help others:

  • Christmas card or ornament fundraiser -- Selling holiday related cards and decorations to raise money for your school or charity is a natural. Ornaments are multipurpose. They can be purchased as d├ęcor items or as gifts, so there's a big potential market for them. Selling cards or wrapping paper door-to-door or through work or school saves customers a special trip to shop for them, too. If you plan your fundraiser far enough in advance, you can also find good deals on merchandise (or solicit donations).
  • Take a photo with Santa -- While you're selling those holiday cards and ornaments, consider setting up a Santa station. A couple of jolly volunteers, a Santa suit and a decent camera are just about all you need.
  • Gift wrap station -- If you've ever seen a guy trying to wrap a present on Christmas Eve, you know how profitable a gift wrapping station can be, especially in the last few days before the holiday. This will require a good location and some support from local merchants. Offering gift wrap services to weary shoppers can actually attract customers to local strip malls.
