When fundraising for your Bar/Bat Mitzvah Projects, make sure to let everyone know what your fundraiser is for! Direct them to your
"myMitzvah Project" page and tell them about Hadassah and
why you feel it is important to help!
Use email and Social Media sites like Facebook and Twitter (only with
your parents' permission!) to get the word out about your fundraiser.
Like Basketball? Set up a Free Shot Contest. Ask friends and family to
sponsor you and your friends with a dollar amount for every free shot
that is made within a certain time period.
Play Music? Have a "Battle of the Bands" Bash! Invite your friends to
participate. Sell tickets to friends and family.
Listen to Music? Many people have CD's they no longer listen to. Collect
CD's from friends, family and neighbors and have a sale! Pass out flyers
and send emails to publicize! (This can work with DVD's of movies, too!)
Budding Chef? Organize a Bake Sale with your friends! Put out flyers in
your neighborhood, email the date, time and place to everyone you know
and ask them to do the same!
Enjoy Crafts? Make beautiful beaded bracelets or other jewelry pieces to
sell to friends and family. A beautiful way to help an important cause!
Create a partnership with a local ice cream or bake shop. Ask them to
create a special flavor for you and that the profits from that flavor
will go to your mitzvah project. Ask everyone you know to take everyone
they know and buy the flavor. The shop will benefit from new people
coming in and you and your friends will benefit Hadassah!
Into fitness? Ask friends and family to sponsor you for every sit up,
push up, or rope jump you do in a given period of time. Or organize a
walk or bikeathon where your participants ask people to sponsor them for
a given amount for each mile they walk or ride.
