So, this year my main goal is to raise money for Dr. Faustman. Her research is very exciting to me, and she needs $25.2 million dollars, currently she has $13.5 of it. My occasional 50-100 bucks that I send her way just isn’t going to cut it. Frankly, I don’t have millions, and well, most people I know, in fact it is likely that everyone I know, are in the same boat.
I asked someone who has a history of raising money how to do it. He said “You ask people.” It was less than helpful advice.
So I am thinking if I use that same 50-100 bucks to buy something cool-ish, and then raffle it off for $3/ticket (given directly to Faustman labs, so you can take the tax donation) that it might make some money. Hopefully. Maybe.
The question is, what would you guys (since you and my facebook friends are pretty much the target audience here) be willing to buy a ticket to get? It would have to be something I could mail easily. Costco has gift cards to Legoland, or they also have Nutri System cards if weight loss is your goal this year - and no, I have no idea if Nutri System works or not. I could just do a gift card to Target or Amazon.
What say you, peeps?
