Sell raffle tickets to faculty and staff. Prizes could be a gift card donated by a local restaurant, an extra vacation day or merchandise from the Colon Cancer Alliance's online store.
Talk to a local restaurant about holding a profit-share night. Ask for 15% of the night’s profits and promote the event at school. Mail in the donations with a completed Dress in Blue Day fundraising form. Be sure to add your event to the Colon Cancer Alliance's Blue Star Calendar.
Put together a blue costume contest to see who can be the most creative! Charge a $10 fee to enter the contest or collect donations as votes (for example: $5 = 1 vote). Contestants must wear blue to be eligible. Purchase something fun from the Colon Cancer Alliance's online store as the contest prize. Remember to send us a picture!
Ask everyone wearing blue (denim counts) to a school sporting event to donate an extra $5 for colon cancer patients and give them a colon cancer fact sheet for their contribution.
Ask your school's art club or art classes to design artwork and advertisements for Dress in Blue Day to post around the school and promote awareness. Purchase buttons to give to the artists as a thank you. Send us a picture!
Create an online fundraising team among the faculty to raise awareness and funds for Dress in Blue Day. People at school can easily get involved by giving a donation, sending emails to friends and family and/or spreading the team's message on social media.
