In our humble opinion, supporters of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation are the most creative and dedicated volunteers in the world. Every day, volunteers, just like you, inspire us with their efforts to raise funds to support our mission of curing childhood cancer.
Here are a few creative fundraising ideas to inspire you as well!
Lemon themed party or pub party
Host a lemon themed party with lemon dishes and drinks and ask guest to make donations in lieu of gifts. Or host a lemon themed pub party where the restaurant special lemon appetizers and drinks with the parties proceeds going to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. This is a simple and fun way to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancers.
Shop/Eat for Alex
Get a local restaurant or boutique to help you arrange a special shopping or dining experience for your friends, family or community, where a portion of the money spent by patrons is donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. An event like this not only helps bring attention to the store or restaurant, but also helps spread awareness about childhood cancer.
Family Reunion/Company Picnic Fundraiser
Why not make your fundraising for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation a family or company wide affair! Asking families or co-workers to pool together donation or host a lemonade stand during your annual event is an easy way to get everyone involved. If you want to take it a step further, you can also make that year’s family reunion or company picnic lemon themed.
Scavenger hunt for ALSF
Organizing a scavenger hunt is a fun way to introduce some friendly competition into your fundraising. You could name you scavenger hunt something fun like “Clues for the Cure,” where teams ranging from 2 to 10 make a donation to be a part of your ALSF scavenger hunt.
Neighborhood yard sale
Sometime the easiest way to fundraise is to use the thing you already have, so have a yard sale! This is a great way to clear out some space in your house and raise money to help kids with cancer. Just make sure you have signs and fliers that let shoppers know their purchases are for a good cause. Invite your family and friends to sell some of their things too. You can even get your whole block involved!
Are you crafty, or do you have crafty friends? Use your talents to help raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer by hosting a craft fair to benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Get your friends, family, and fellow craft lovers involved. You can even include a few lemon themed crafts or have a "lemony" crafting area for kids.
