  5. Other ideas found on the internet --- Dance Marathon: A continuous, multi-hour event in which participants raise funds through pledges. Treasure Chest: Fill a chest with donated prizes and sell keys to open the chest. Silly String Shoot Out: Auction off or sell cans of silly string and take aim at volunteers who are good sports like a teacher or a principal. Movie Night: Approach your local theater or movie store to ask about sponsorship initiatives (a discount or provide the event for free) with the promise of publicity. You can offer inexpensive admission, plus donated concession snacks. Magic Show: Charge for tickets for a special show. Celebrity Doodle Auction: Though this idea can take some time, by sending requests to celebrities asking for their one-of-a-kind doodles for auction. Car Wash: Select a location and time that will offer significant public exposure. Recycling Drive (in states with can deposits): Collect aluminum cans and plastic bottles all year round and donate proceeds from the recycling center. T-shirt Sale: Sell t-shirts with an original design and donate all or a portion of the proceeds.
