Raising Money for Boxes

I've had a few people ask about how to raise money to pack shoe boxes, or to pay for the shipping costs.  This can be tricky, but our Lord has it all figured out.  It's amazing when we put it in His hands, how he gives us ideas. 

 This Sunday at our church, we are having our Church Picnic, and our Sunday School superintendent came up with the idea to have a dunk tank, to raise money for OCC. Every ball that is thrown will cost a certain amount of money.  And all money raised will go towards OCC.

Have a fundraising garage sale.  Ask friends and family for items.  You'll be surprised how much money a garage sale can bring in. 

Have an facebook auction.  Ask businesses to donate items and put a minimum bid and invite friends to bid on the items. 

Have a bake sale.

God has given me the gift of creativity and I started Shine Design where I donate proceeds to OCC.
What gifting has God given you? Pray about ways He can use your gifting to help OCC.

I saw this posted on the OCC fb page.  Bowling for Shoe Boxes at Biltmore Baptist Church's mission fair in Asheville, NC.  What a neat idea!

I'd love to hear your ideas.
