Creative Fundraising Ideas

Go latte-less with friends. 
Ask as many friends if you can if they'll give up lattes (or their special treat of choice) for just 1 week with you. Imagine if 30 of your friends gave up lattes for a week you could fund a whole class for a year!





Host a flower-potluck.
Get together with your friends in your backyard or at a lovely park. Ask each person to bring a small bouquet of flowers to share and $10 to donate to show the women of India that they're worth it!
