•Hold a dance or dance-a-thon!

• Sell hand-made crafts or jewelry

• Hold a garage sale or auction.

Jewelry Sale Fundraiser for African Girls' Education

Host a "Happy Hour to Empower" (girls' night out or cocktail party) and ask friends to make donations to SHARE.

• Put on a car wash

Candy Jar Fundraiser for African Girls' Education
Olivia held a  candy jar fundraiser and asked her family and friends to donate for a guess.

• During the holidays, place a SHARE mailbox on your desk at work asking co-workers to drop in a dollar or two

• Provide a service for a neighbor or friend and ask for a donation in place of money.

• Instead of gifts, ask for donations to SHARE in honor of your birthday, wedding or special event.

• Ask those close to you to donate saved change. It may not be much, but it adds up!

• Girls Night In. Invite your girlfriends for a fun night in instead of going out. Put your cocktail money in a pot and send it to SHARE in Africa. So simple and fun!

• Movie Viewing. Get friends together to watch a documentary on the education in Africa, such as the film, "A Small Act'.

• Morning Tea. Have the neighbours round for morning tea instead of meeting at a cafe – everyone bake a cake and put your coffee money in a pot for SHARE!

• Book Club. Read a book, such as Half the Sky, at your next book club and introduce SHARE to your members. At the next meeting, your book club can gather donations to support a SHARE scholar for one year.
