Default Getting donations from people

I am participating in the canadian breast cancer foundation run for the cure and need to get sponsored. What is the best way to get donations? I am running a booth at Market Village this weekend to spread awareness but I doubt that the community there is going to donate.

Should I go door to door? stand in front of a Loblaws?

The marathon is October 2nd and my goal is $150

Hit up family + friends then do door to door.

I think i should try another neighrborhood because I went to every house in my neighborhood in Grade 6 for Heart and Stroke and I got $15. Not trying to say anything bad about the neighborhood but I think my time can be better spent somewhere else.

Woodbine and 16th. It's behind Buttonville airport with about 200 townhouses. I remember one guy telling me to get the hell out lol. Perhaps I was really small and everyone thought I would take the money for myself?

Maybe try going into Richmondhill. Alot of nice neighborhoods there and maybe your luck would change? That or maybe go south of 14th avenue in North Scarborough/South Markham area?

Go stand outside of T&T at Warden/Steeles. That place is insanely busy! lol

you need to be able to show people that what you are doing is legit. dress nice, be polite and well-spoken, have paperwork to back it up, tell them whether or not they get a charitable donation receipt.

and go mostly to rich neighbourhoods.

what trane said...
if you come to my door dressed like a bum with your hand out asking for money (without any paperwork), i'm closing the door on your face before you can say a word.

but if you come to the door dressed nicely, well spoken, with legitimate paperwork showing that what you are doing is awesome (which it is), than i'll definitely give you some money.

Is a CBCF pin and an pledge envelope enough proof?

Maybe print off something on the subject and hand it to people and know the statistics on the subject. Take an hour of your time before hand to be prepared and you'll save time down the road. It'll pay off.

for me, barely. is this through school? if so, a student card showing the school it's being run through would go a long way. people want to know that someone is accountable for this.

im doing a community service project that is run by me and 6 other high schoolers. A rep of CBCF emailed us saying they will help us run a booth at Market village and that we will act as a representative of them this weekend. I can give a tax receipt but that's about it because the website just gives a donation form for people that want a tax receipt.

And I also suggest the library. A lot of parents take their kids there.

The best thing to do is dress up in a nice black suit and head out early Saturday morning around 9:00am and go door to door.
