Hive Drive: FUNraise Together!

This month we are embracing the month of giving thanks. We are asking Honeycomb families to mobilize their networks and fundraise together for hurricane relief funds and help those affected by the tragedy in Las Vegas.

How can your family work together to raise money to support relief efforts? Here are a few easy FUNdraising ideas to get you inspired:

  • Penny or Loose Change Drives –  Maximize your impact by planning a drive with your classmates, neighbors, or club.
  • Donut and Coffee Sale – Host a morning donut and coffee stand in your neighborhood.
  • Yard Sale – Before winter hits, clear up the clutter and add donate your profits.
  • Latte Sacrifice – This one is hard but it’s worth it! Donate a cup-a-day for your cause.
  • Swear Jar – Break bad habits and bolster your fundraising numbers all at the same time.
  • Help a Neighbor – Offer to rake leaves or walk a neighbor’s dog in exchange for tips.
  • Local Businesses – Ask your orthodontist, favorite pizza place, soccer club to support your cause – every donation you receive makes a difference.
