We decided to put together this cool mini bar. It's a box that opens up into a bar, contains two tumblers and shot glasses and coasters and then multiple mini bottles of booze. It's really super cute and I haven't seen anything like this around before. It has actually generated a bunch of interest and people are definitely more keen to drop some money on a chance that they might win something. I also feel less shy to ask people to buy raffle tickets than I am to ask people to give me money for nothing. I feel less like a beggar. :)
So far all I've done is posted a picture on FB and printed 2 small black and white (not great) fliers to share with people at work. We've raised an additional $180 just in 24 hours so that's pretty good. We still have a LONG way to go to reach the needed $15,000 but every little bit helps. A lot of people have told me that they're waiting on pay day on Friday so I will keep you updated.
