If you’re looking to go “out of the box” for a fund raising event, think about having a Jenny Lee Designs sale to benefit your group. This is a great option, particularly for smaller groups, and doesn’t involve a huge time commitment.
For example, I recently held a sale to benefit a friend who is undergoing treatment for breast cancer. I donated 20% of the total sales and, as a result of the generous outpouring from her friends and co-workers, she received a sizeable donation from the 5-hour sale.
I can hold the sale at almost any location with my entire inventory displayed. Alternatively, I can set up a sampling of inventory and shoppers can look through my catalog of designs to find just the right item. Keep in mind, if they can’t find what they’re looking for, I can work with them at the sale to design a piece just for them.
Remember that what you give will afford you more pleasure than what you get.
