One idea that my womens group came up with was a coupon book with a variety of services.

Believe it or not it worked!

We offered items such as babysitting, cleaning, car washing, a day of errands, etc.

We were very successful.

I’m not sure that it would work for everyone, but depending on the cause, I’m sure it would be worth a try.

We were raising money for a family that lost everything.

We sold the books for 25.00 and raised 2000.00.

The key was to appeal to those that lead busy lifestyles and needed help.

There were some people that didn’t have family nearby or possibly unwilling or unable to babysit. For them, it was great to be able to go out without worrying about getting a sitter, or trusting someone they didn’t know.
