And I need help! Through my employer, which is a really big conpany, we do an event called Bowl For Kids Sake. More or less, its to help raise money for the local Big Brothers Big Sisters organizatiob which helps with mentoring kids in the area.

Any who! We have 2 ways of getting pledge donations, both online and by cash and I have no clue what to do to promote this and the event they are having. Any suggestions would help!

Talk to your friends and family about it. Just explain what the fundraiser is and how they can help

Are you in charge of the marketing for the fundraiser or are you just in charge of getting a few pledges on your own?

Call local attny offices (lawyers love donating to kids stuff)... See if they want to sponsor you and use your T-shirt back as advertising (works for any local business and you can print a shirt pretty cheaply with all your sponsors on the back)

Neighbors

Family

Friends

Any other local business and see if they want to sponsor you
