Make Fundraising Even MORE Fun

Join the Campus Walk Stream Team! It is so easy, and it isn't just for gamers!

Live Fundraising is a great way to tell your story, engage with donors, and create a richer connection to the mission!

 

Live Fundraising isn't only about gaming. Here are some ideas on what you can do as an individual or team:

  • Set a time (24 hours, 5 hours, 3 hours, etc.) to have challenges that you and/or your team will do! Tell your "audience" that you are doing the live fundraiser, and what your goal will be!

  • A challenge can be:

Playing a game under a certain amount of time

Doing something you hate like:eating a food item you detest, singing in public, petting a snake...the list can be endless!

A certain number of cartwheels, jumping jacks, push-ups, etc.

How many hot dogs you can eat in 5 minutes, or a pie-eating contest!

  • You can also do activities within a specific amount of time, and show everyone you are doing it, and where you are if you want others to join you, such as:

Car wash

Cook-off,or pretend you are hosting a cooking show

Play quick games such as Jenga, Connect Four, Slapjack, Hungry, Hungry, Hippo, Pictionary, etc.

Play charades!

Karaoke!

And of course you can ALWAYS play video games as an individual or a team
