A coffee morning and a book or cake sale
People love the opportunity to get together over coffee to chat or read. Give them a chance to do both and raise money for a great cause.
Set a date for your event and invite your friends to donate any used best sellers and bake some delicious cakes. Promote this event in your local community and in local supermarkets or coffee shops.
Ask your friends to bring a friend or a neighbor along to the event. Charge a reasonable amount for refreshments and give participants an opportunity to browse and purchase used books. You might want to sell cakes, other home made food items or quality gifts donated by friends.
Share a Samaritan's Purse water video at the beginning of the event and let participants know that all their generous donations will be used to provide clean water to children and adults around the world.
