At Avanceon, we strongly believe in giving back to the community. Each year, we vote for 3 local charities to support with the company matching the amount raised and then disbursing the gift at the end of the year. Throughout the year, employees have the option to participate in a variety of activities to raise money. We’re always looking for fresh ideas for fun fundraisers and recently we found a great one.
It required little effort, even less cost and went over really well in the office. We simply asked people to submit a baby photo of themselves and a small fee ($10pp) to go towards our charitable collection. We prepared a photo board and asked the participants to guess which baby photo was of which employee. Our winner got 17 out of 25 correct and clearly knows her co-workers well!
Do you have a similar approach to charity? Any creative fund raising ideas? We’d love to hear from you.
