Australian Day - organise a day where everyone bring along some Aussie tucker to celebrate being Australian. Charge a fee to join in.
Bike Rides - gather a group of friends who want to raise funds by holding a sponsored bike ride.
Book Sales - find some friends who would be willing to clear out their bookshelves and organise a “book sale”. You could offer them a small commission or ask them to simply donate the books and you keep all the proceeds.
Cook & Sell - do some healthy baking and sell it to those on your contact list. You could even make bread, soup or toasted muesli.
Donate - from your contact list, ask people to donate an hour’s pay, or maybe even a day’s pay!
Kite Flying Day - why not hold a family day with a picnic in the park and kite flying? Charge an “entry fee” for each kite, or better still, for each family who attends the day.
Late-for-Meetings Penalty - if you have a set time to do specific things in your family why not charge a fee for anyone who arrives five minutes after it’s planned commencement? Or you could consider trying this at church socials - of course you would have to get permission from your church to do this.
Lunch Money - if your parents or older siblings buy their lunches, why not offer to make their lunch for them and they pay you what they normally would have paid to buy their lunch.
Memory Meal - organise a church social or a family/friends fun night. Everyone dresses in the style of their favourite childhood age, bringing along some of those tasty dishes their parents would cook. Charge a fee to participate. You could even charge a penalty for those who don’t participate.
One-Day Break - get sponsored by family and friends to go without something for a whole 24-hour period. Maybe go without being on a computer, watching tv, playing with friends, talking on the phone etc. Think of anything at all that would be a real sacrifice!
Sacrificial Family Days/Weeks - Ask your family, and those on your contact list to sacrifice buying something for a given period of time and donate the money to your cause instead!
Sell Your Services - ask those on your contact list if they have any odd jobs around the place that need doing. Note that these jobs are not your every-day chores that you have - these are extra jobs! Make up a little brochure to hand out and be sure to include what you are fundraising for.
World Meal - hold a meal with an Indian, Italian, Mexican, Japanese etc theme and charge an entry fee to family and friends. Give out prizes for the most authentic or unusual dish!
Community Clean-Up - Get together some sponsors from your community and then go and clean up your local community. They could sponsor you by the time you spend cleaning up or simply by donations.
