Consider fundraising efforts to help those in need with payitforwardfund.net. Here are some ideas that local business and sporting teams who've promoted products, fundraisers and Play for Pink events to benefit us. Their successes prove that doing good can also be good for business! Together, let's plan a promotion and grow the Fun(d) for others.
If you are interested in participating, please email email@example.com with the details (date(s), location(s), promotion, portion PIFF will receive). We'll also be highlighting Partners on our Facebook page.
How a cocktail lifted sales by 10%....
and did a lot of good along the way
Redstone: For every Cosmo, Strawberry Doli and Pineapple Upside down drink sold in October, Redstone donated $1.00 to Pay It Forward. It seemed a lot of people wanted in on the sweet deals because sales increased 10% during this promotion. Since they started this promotion, they have raised over $110,000 for our cause!
Other fabulous Fun(draisers) we are proud of!
Datatrend: This local technology services consulting company hosted a bowl-a-thon as a way to raise money for us. It also helped employees feel more engaged with their community and each other.
Mickman Brother's Pink Pumpkin Promenade: What's more exciting than a green house full of pink-pumpkins, a pink Cadillac, a silent auction and an Elvis impersonator? The fact that they raised $12,000 for Pay It Forward.
Take part in the fun(d)
Are you a retailer? Try a "Keep the Change" promotion, where purchases rounded up to the nearest dollar. It'll just end up in the couch anyway. Let us help!
How about a new twist on the BOGO? We call it "Buy One, Give One"- for every second item sold, you simply donate proceeds to Pay It Forward.
Strict dress code in the office? What if employees could pay $10 to wear jeans to work on Friday?

Play for Pink - Get your school involved in the Fun(d)
Designate a game in your schools schedule as a Play for Pink PIFF night.
Teams have raised money through:
* Entrance donations or “pass the hat” at half time
* Raffle tickets sold before and during the big game - for example a prize raffle
or a 50/50 raffle
* A portion of ticket sales and/or concession sales from that game night
* Bake sale during the game
* A half time contest (i.e. a puck toss for hockey or a shoot out for basketball)
make it specific for your sport!
* Bake sale during the game
*Pink T-shirt, bracelet and/or sticker sales before and during the game
* Have a silent auction of items donated by local businesses
* Find a sponsor and have their donation tied into the score of the game
-Basketball example: - If your team scores over 50 points – they will donate
$500 to PIFF
-Hockey example – If your team scores first – they will donate $500 to PIFF
-If your team wins – they will donate $500 to PIFF
* Be creative and come up with your own idea that works for your team
