Mission of the Month: Raise Money

Join a community of kids who are making the world a better and brighter place. TFK Service Stars know that even the smallest actions can make a big impact.

Mission of the Month

It’s fun to find creative ways to raise money for a good cause. From bake sales and lemonade stands to car washes and coin drives, there are lots of ways to rally support. This month, we’re looking to feature Service Stars who are raising funds for the causes they care about. Could you be one of these kids? You don’t have to gather a huge sum of money to make a huge impact.

Need Inspiration?

  • Organize a coin drive at your school or a local business. How will you get the word out?

  • Offer a service, such as shoveling snow, in return for a donation. What jobs do people need done in your area?

  • Write a letter to an organization that’s raising money for a cause you care about. Ask: How can I help?

  • If someone wants to give you a gift, ask them to donate it to a good cause instead. What will you choose?

  • Set aside some of every dollar you receive or earn to donate to your cause. How much can you save?

  • Host a lemonade stand or a bake sale to raise funds. What else can you make and sell?

Stars Shine Brighter Together

When kids work together, they can achieve great things. This month’s group idea is to organize a craft sale. Ask friends and classmates to use their talents to make crafts. Think about where you’ll sell them. To which cause will you donate the proceeds?

Need help getting started? Talk to an adult or pair up with a friend to find an idea that feels right for you.
