Turning seasonal chores into opportunities.
It’s November and, in my opinion, the most beautiful month of the year! Everywhere I look, leaves are falling – soon to be replaced by snow. Some great fundraising opportunities are waiting for you this fall and winter, so grab your coat and boots and get outside!
For colder weather:
For many parts of the country, snow is on its way (if it hasn’t arrived already), and the chore that many people dread each winter is shoveling it off their sidewalks. Lucky for you, this is something you can easily help with before school in the mornings and on the weekends.
Create a flyer to give to your neighbors offering your snow-shoveling services for a set rate and see if they’d like to hire you. When they do, be thorough! If they like your work they’ll be quick to hire you again.
For warmer weather:
You may not have snow where you live, but you probably have lots of leaves falling right now. Raking leaves may not be the most fun thing to do but a few hours of work on the weekends or after school can go a long way in funding your tuition. Grab a rake and ask your neighbors, friends, and relatives if you can collect the fallen leaves in their yard for them. You can either have a set price or an hourly rate.
Whether you decide to rake leaves, shovel snow, or help your neighbors with other chores, make sure to let them know exactly why their donations are so important to you. They would be much more willing to give you a shot once they find out about the incredible opportunity that you are working toward such as your Summit!
