I’m posting this ahead of time because when you actually read this, I will be participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.Â A group of myÂ friendsÂ get togetherÂ every year and sell gumbo at the walk to raiseÂ funds and my husband and I will be joining them this year.
I participate in a couple of different fundraisers every year, personally and with my company. I enjoy organizing and working with good causes and it’s always a lot of fun. We throw charity poker games, do team walks for March of Dimes and Light the Night and other events. Stay tuned for another American Cancer Society fundraiser that the Atlanta Skeptics are planning for later in the year, by the way!Â But this has been a difficult year for most non-profits and in the events we’ve had so far, I’ve definitely noticed that people are more cautious in their contributions.
What is/are your pet charities? What do you look for when selecting a charity to donate to? Do you have any cool ideas or fundraising tactics or eventsÂ to share?
