Break the Dress Code Day/Dress Down Day
Have a dress down day, where people can dress down/break the dress code by making a donation!

Parking Spot Give Away
Raffle off the best parking spot at your company or school, and allow the winner to use the spot for a designated period of time!

Administrative Make Over
Allow students to organize a school wide competition to raise money, and the class with the most money is allowed to give an administrator a make-over.

Schools can host a walk/run during gym class, and have students receive donations or pledges to see how many laps they can go.

Ideas for Individuals and Families:

Garage Sale
Invite your neighbors to join you in a garage sale with the proceeds going to Change Makers.

Chores for Change
Set a goal/weekly chore chart, and every time your child finishes the chart, a certain change amount will go to the Change Maker jar.

Block party and cook-off
Take advantage of great weather and get your entire neighborhood together for a friendly competition. Organize a cook-off between families and see who can raise the most money.

Non-athletic game night
If organized sports or running don’t appeal to you, there’s always a good old-fashioned game night. Grab your Scrabble boards, poker chips, or chess sets and get ready to play and fund childhood cancer research at the same time!
