If you want to raise funds for a good cause like donating money to a hospital or protecting your local wildlife, then you can have a kite event. It is not that difficult to organize this event, and it can bring in a lot of people. Here are some tips for organizing a kite fundraising event.
Choose a venue
You need to first choose a venue for the event. You can choose a field or a park. If there is a beach nearby, then that can be a good location also. You just need an open space where lots of people can gather to fly kites. For this, you may need to get permission from your local authority.
You need to find many volunteers for the event. There are lots of work to do, and you need helping hands. You need people for promoting the event, clean the venue, arrange the raffle, draw prizes, collect donations, arrange logistics, and more.
You can find good kite vendors and buy kites for the event. You can also make colourful kites yourself. You will find kite-making tutorials online and learn how to make kites of different sizes and colours.
Welcome food and drinks stalls
As kite flying takes place outdoors, people will enjoy food and drinks. So, you can ask local restaurants and bars to set up stalls. Many people will be motivated to sell homemade food and drinks too. This will allow them to earn money.
Get prizes for the raffle draw
You should arrange a raffle draw for the attendees. Those who donate a certain amount of money, say $10, will be able to get a ticket for the raffle draw. You need to have exciting prizes for the draw.
Have free kite flying lessons
You can ask the local kite clubs to provide free kite flying lessons at the event. This will encourage many people to participate in the event. They will have a great time.
These tips will help you to collect a lot of money for your social cause. You will get lots of donations, and the local people will also have a wonderful time participating in the fundraising event.
