Be Creative

Over the years, people have come up with all sorts of neat and creative ways to contribute to the Basket Brigade including:

  • picketing turkeysHold a ‘Jeans Friday’ at your office, where employees can come in jeans with a donation to the cause.
  • Feed a Community with Less Than $300. Here is a simple concept – It is getting 33 people to donate $3.33 a day for 3 months to create a $10,000 donation. It makes you think about the impact of a small group of committed individuals can have with the small change found in their pocket. Check it out:
    $3.33 x 90 Days = $299.70
    $299.70 x 33 people = $9,890.10
    Do you know 33 people or businesses that could share in doing this?
  • Organize a car wash.
  • Put a donation station in your office where people can contribute funds or canned goods.
  • Have a company contest for which employee can raise the most support.

Most of all, have fun and thank you for your participation.  It means a lot to a lot of people.
