Last week was dancer recruitment week so you know what that means…it’s time to get HYPE about the marathon! Now I know what you’re all thinking, yeah I’m excited for the dance marathon, and of course I want to help the patients and families at UNC Childrens, but how in the world am I going to raise all that money? Well don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are five quick and easy ways to raise your $200 in no time (and maybe even have some fun while doing it :))
1. Social Media BINGO (and other various social media endeavors)
Everyone loves a good Instagram Story post and everyone loves playing games. Combine the two and what do you have? A great way to raise money FTK. Create a bingo board with totals ranging from $1-$5 and post it on social media with your Venmo username. Once one friend donates and everyone else sees, you’ll have raised money FTK in no time :)
2. Volunteer at Athletic Events
Does your grandma love getting letters in the mail? Want to reach out to family, but don’t have the time to buy stamps and address letters? Let us do it for you. Information will be sent out and all you have to do is put in the names and addresses of people you want to send letters to and voila! We’ll do all the rest.
5. Get Creative
Are you ~artsy~? Paint or make drawings to sell to friends for money towards your dancer total. Do you live on the tenth floor of Hojo? Offer to take out your friends/suitemates’ trash for a small fee. Are you America’s Next Great Baker? Sell some yummy baked goods. Any other talents or ideas? Go for it!
The moral of this story: there are SO many ways to raise money FTK and you are sure to pass that $200 goal in no time! Have fun with it, involve family and friends, and most importantly remember to thank everyone who donates. Remind them that they’re not just helping you reach your goal, but they’re directly impacting the lives of patients and families at UNC Childrens with their donation. See you all at marathon!
