A New, CLEAN fundraiser for your school or Non-profit Group

Here is a solution to two big problems we can find in every state, every town, every neighborhood.

The problems are litter, and lack of funds for public schools and non-profit groups.

Now you're thinking: a solution for both? How can that be?

Sickened by the amount of trash I see around me, I came up with an idea of a "Trash-a-thon" that will not only benefit the environment, but our school as well. I share it with you in the hopes that you will present this idea to your schools, non-profit groups, youth groups, any kind of group that uses fundraising as a way to earn money.

When I presented it to our elementary school, it was received with gratitude and excitement. The woman in charge of fundraising was sick of the same old "cookie-selling" techniques, and was also able to see the potential of this program. You just may find the same reaction when you present this to the staff in charge of fundraising at your school or group.

The "Trash-a-thon" works the same as the traditional "walk-a-thon". Here's the gist: The kids find sponsors for their litter clean-up, with the sponsors giving a certain amount of money per piece of litter picked up. A maximum dollar amount is a good idea. (If donations instead of sponsorship works better in your neighborhood, that's an option as well.) The money raised goes toward the school or group.

I have here the paperwork needed for the fundraiser. Just click on it, save it on your computer, and make the changes necessary for your school or group.

Make a difference in your community!!!

My name is Heidi and I live on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. I have three young girls and a baby son, and a husband who makes me laugh. We love to turn up the music and dance in the livingroom, bend down and smell fresh grass, and play at the beach in the sunshine. I run a stand up paddle school, sharing good times with tourists on the island. I love teaching stand up paddling, and it proves a challenge to do a good job raising a family while running a business. Like my post? Please leave a comment.

    Thank you for the article and document. We will try to spread this out to the rest of the schools around the world.

    Never let anyone stop you from imagining a clean environment.

    Health is a result of environmental signals to your DNA.

    Every time you make a good choice against litter, positive chemical reactions happen instantly in your body & brain that make you more

    healthy and alive.

    In other words… Picking Up Litter = Free Drugs created by your brain.

    Future generations will not tolerate litter.

    Such a good idea, Heidi. The world needs less kids selling wrapping paper (that will become trash) and more kids raising money while cleaning up our community!
