These are a couple of fundraising ideas that you can take up to help raise funds.
Bake sale :
Set up around areas of high pedestrian traffic like a mall, bake sales are a great way to get the community involved and raise funds for LOLT at the same time. Baked goods like cupcakes, cookies and desserts are prepared by home bakers and displayed artfully to attract buyers. This could include savories as well as ethnic foods. You could also involve kids, by setting up a bake stall at the school fair and educate them about philanthropy.
An ideal way to host a charity dinner would be to call a few like-minded friends over for dinner and introduce them to LOLT. Discuss the various projects with them and the various ways that they can contribute. Envelopes can be handed out towards the end of the evening for guests to make cash or cheque contributions.
Exhibitions attract a cross section of society, especially women who are happy to help out for a cause. These days most exhibitions feature stalls by NGOs and LOLT can be a part of this. We can display and sell our products as well as educate the buyer on projects we are involved in.
