Creative Ways to Boost Your Fundraising with Suzanne Reisler Litwin

We are getting close to “Show Time!” That’s what I call the Walk. In the play, “Gypsy” the dancers had to figure out a way to get the attention of their patrons. The dancers with the most experience told the youthful girls,

I'm electrifying and I ain't even trying
I never have to sweat to get paid
'Cause if you got a gimmick
Gypsy girl you got it made.

This is where I start with my fundraising. I gotta get a gimmick!  It’s easy just to send an email or a letter, but it’s more interesting to send something fun!

I usually start with a slogan.  This year it is - ‘Let’s Build a Cure!’  My letter is all about building materials and construction with a sexy twist. It is going to “catch” the attention of my sponsors.

Another idea is I walk through the dollar store to find something I can send to my sponsors in relation to my theme.  This year it will be Lego blocks.  I can’t divulge anymore!

Start with a slogan, then bring in a theme, and twist it in a funny, brilliant, or sexy way.

Good luck!  If you need my help for creative ideas, check out jdrf.ca/Suzanne or email Suzanne suzgirl@videotron.ca
