Fundraising for Generic Causes and Charities

Written by Michele Wheat

People love to show off the causes that they support, and selling customized wristbands, either at a fundraiser or on their own, is a great method of raising money for charity as well as increasing awareness. But it's important that the wristbands you sell sport a unique, eye-catching look and are made from high-quality materials in order to best represent your cause. That's why so many people trust wristbands from Wristband Resources when they need cheap fundraising ideas for a cause!

Fundraising for a cause using wristbands is simple. The first step, if you're not already working with a specific organization, is to choose a charity that your efforts will benefit. Donors don't just want to hear that you're fundraising for cancer research: They want to know exactly who will be receiving their money. This step can also help you start thinking about how you want to design your wristbands, as the charity or cause you're focusing on might have its own signature colors or emblem. Once you've figured this part out, set a monetary goal and a time line for your efforts.

Now, it's time to assemble a team to help put together and execute your campaign. Each team member will bring unique abilities to the table and can contribute charity fundraising ideas, and you'll also be able to tap into each person's social network to reach a wider audience. You might want to plan events to get people engaged, ranging from an old-school bake sale to a 5K race. At your event, you might plan to sell merchandise to promote your cause. There are a number of good things to sell that raise money for charity, such as T-shirts, hats, and bumper stickers, but silicone bracelets are one of the simplest and most popular charity fundraising ideas.

Once you've settled on ways to raise money for charity, figure out how you'll execute your plans. Now is the time when you should order your customized wristbands from Wristband Resources. You can get them printed in a variety of colors and customize the text any way you'd like, and you can also add small logos or emblems to each. Bulk discounts are available for added savings on our already low prices.

Effective advertising is crucial to fundraising success. Try setting up a website or social media page about your event or sale to increase awareness. And once you get your wristbands in, the organizers of your fundraiser should start wearing them right away so people will spot them on your wrist and ask you about them, giving you an opportunity to promote your fundraising efforts.
