We go out of our comfort zones and away from our stressful everyday lives even just for a few days.

How to Put the Fun in Your Next Fundraiser

thinking-web-pic

Are you crazy enough to start your own Fundraising event for your cause?

We said crazy because well, fundraising isn’t exactly the most relaxing event to organize. In fact, it’s the complete opposite. From planning to execution, the stress is sure to suck all the fun out of fundraising. However, your cause needs to be put out there for the world to care about, and you need to raise money to help make a difference. So don’t let the stress get between you and your cause. We’ve got some pretty good ideas to help you get through!

 If you do decide to lead your own fundraising effort, you’re going to need a lot of help. There are numerous resources online (such as Go Fund Me) which give you the option to advertise and accept donations online. However, you shouldn’t forget the appeal of face to face campaigning; raising funds and awareness requires a lot of legwork. Reach out to your community leaders, neighbors and family members and ask for volunteers.

Fundraising is an integral part in supporting a cause. Financial aid is needed to fund research, awareness programs and the like. While the reward is priceless, the road to raising money can be tedious and stressful. This is why you should make it a point to make the event fun for you, your volunteers and your audience!

Teamwork

So how are you going to do that?

Create a buzz weeks before the event.  You need to get people curious enough to drop by your event be it a bake sale or a star studded concert. Giveaway flyers, invites, event teasers at strategic locations that get a lot of people traffic such as supermarkets and daycare centers. Create a Facebook page and keep your audience posted on what activities they can look forward to during the event.

Next, aim for diversity. Instead of just selling lemonade, why don’t you invite your volunteers to bake their special recipes to sell as well? Conduct a short, but memorable presentation about your cause. You can even make posters and spread them all around the venue. Pull out some tables chairs, play some music and make it an afternoon to remember. For a little extra fee, your audience can also watch a movie in your backyard. You need to create as many opportunities to raise awareness and collect donations.  Use scratch and win cards to raffle off giveaways such as goodie bags, bracelets or t-shirts.

The main thing to remember is to keep the cause the center of attention while keeping the affair entertaining. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your event and remember to have some fun!

Sky’s The Limit: Blank Promotional Products

A Clean Slate is something that we all aspire to at one point of our lives. After a bad experience, we wish that we can erase the pain and regrets and start anew. It is a chance at a new beginning where we get another shot at right choices and live a better life. A clean slate is not easy to come by – that’s why when it does, we should take advantage of it!

Black promotional products work the same way. It gives business owners a chance to flex their creative muscles. They’re given blank products on which they are free to design as they see fit. Bulk Wholesale Companies offer you business owners the freedom to choose an item, design it and give it away to their customers. There are numerous items that you can buy pre-made. For example, give away yellow sticky notes if that’s your logos’ color. Or, pink reusable bags at your next community get together. Participants may appreciate it, but you sure aren’t doing much for your business.

As a business owner, you must make marketing and advertisement priorities. Why? Well, you very well can’t claim you’ve got the best cupcakes in town when with no one to attest to it! Giveaways (especially reusable ones) can sell your products as long as your customers use them. For example, each time a document gets passed around the office with your sticky note on it, everyone that touches that document will get a glimpse of your company logo and contact number. Talk about instant advertisement! You will only need to pay for these items once, and they would advertise your company for a very long time.

Or, invite people to your fund raising campaigns by giving away flyers, ballpens or mouse pads. You can go big with promotional banners, spheres or balloons.

The Lowdown on Lunar New Year Corporate Giveaways

The Chinese have one of the most beautiful and ancient civilizations known to man.  In every bustling city on Earth, these is a China Town – where people from all races and nationalities flock for a taste of authentic Chinese food and products. Just one taste of their flavorful food and you will be exposed to the many layers and tastes of their culture. The Chinese people are firm believers in following superstition and tradition no matter which country they call home.

Chinese-New-Year-China-China-Red-AAM

Come January 31st, our Chinese friends will celebrate the Lunar New Year. Unlike Western Cultures which follow a Gregorian calendar, the most Asian countries also follow a Lunar Calendar. Also known as a Gregorian calendar, a Solar Calendar symbolizes the position of the earth on its revolution around the sun. Consequently, a Lunar Calendar reflects the cycle of the moon which causes it to differ slightly from a Solar Calendar in terms of the length of months and years. Nowadays, it is commonly used to schedule important life events such as when it is most auspicious for a wedding or starting a new venture.

Chinese-New-Year

The Lunar New Year celebrations run for 15 days and they are all filled with activities that are designed to attract all kinds of good fortune for the coming year. The Chinese typically dress their work, home and communities to the nines in red (a color believed to have to power to drive away evil spirits) and the animal to which the year is dedicated to (2014 is the Year of the Wooden Horse). Other traditions include paying off all debts, cleaning homes, eating ‘lucky’ foods and gift giving.

Whether you’re working with a China-based contractor or some clients are big believers in Chinese tradition, it only seems prudent that you give them something to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Traditional Chinese gifts include red money envelopes, wine, tea and sweets. Giving money to your clients may be a little awkward so here’s our idea: Why don’t you get Traditional Chinese Calligraphy Symbols imprinted on items and use them as giveaways?

Buttons – “Love”Love ButtonsPaper Products – “Love”

Before you have anything printed, be sure to check the authenticity of the symbol. You can go online and find a reputable site – there are hundreds of characters in the Chinese language and some of them look a lot alike. Other than that, have a prosperous and blessed 2014.
