Use photo’s of babies, dogs, etc. — anything that relates to your organization. Entrants submit a photo (specify maximum size accepted), and may also submit a 3×5 card with a few sentences as a description to create more interest. Display photos in Super Scribble Paper Frames ($6.49/30 frames). The frames can be numbered and entrants can write a short description right on the frames. Or you could mount the photos on a display board or inside a sponsoring merchant’s window at a sidewalk festival. Each photo is numbered and a jar is numbered for each photo for votes. Votes are made with coins, dollar bills, or checks (made payable to your organization). The picture with the most “votes” (total money collected) wins a prize.
Prizes can be solicited from sponsors. The “votes” (money) goes to your organization. The most “votes” are obtained from grandmothers/fathers and aunts/uncles, so this fundraiser works best in a smaller community or at an event with relatives attending.
