Fundraising tips from our mascot, Buddy Bear

  • Dress up like Buddy Bear with a touch of purple.
  • Hold a purple bake sale, and sell purple-themed food on the day.
  • Ensure everyone learns about where money raised will be going so they can have that conversation with friends and family.
  • Create a QR code to link to your fundraising page (Buddy Bear can help with this if you need).
  • Make a deal with the coach to do something crazy if you hit your fundraising target.
  • Set a giving target (ie. $1) for each run, wicket, catch or six. 
  • Host a raffle.
  • Have juniors to run the canteen and talk to the senior players about the Alannah & Madeline Foundation.
