Amp up your fundraising activities by motivating your staff to participate! Here are a few simple ideas to help promote Jeans Day with your employer.
Select a Team Captain
Choosing a Team Captain will help keep your fundraiser organized and on track to meet your fundraising goals. This individual/s would be responsible for collecting donations and implementing fun ways to keep employees engaged. We’ve got helpful Team Captain tools available here.
Set a Fundraising Goal
Be sure your staff members are aware of your fundraising goals and keep them in the loop on your progress along the way. Speak with your HR manager regarding resources available to spread the word. Materials like flyers can be posted in bathrooms or breakrooms to help keep your campaign top of mind in the office.
Make Goal-Setting Fun!
Giant Jeans – Purchase a giant pair of jeans and challenge employees to fill them up. For every donation made add a tennis ball or other item into the jeans to “fill them up”. If you reach your goal, the entire staff receives a prize!
Friendly Competition – Sometimes, people need a little competition to motivate their participation. Start a departmental challenge! The department raising the most funds for Jeans Day wins a free lunch or an ice cream social on your designated dress down day.
Get your executive team involved! Employees will be more motivated to participate in your fundraiser if they see your leadership team is fully onboard and just as excited as you are to raise money for Childhelp. Ask leadership to mention Jeans Day at company meetings and encourage participation.
Don’t forget to Celebrate Your Success! Follow up with staff to announce your final fundraising totals and consider having a brown bag lunch or some other special treat for everyone who participated in Jeans Day.
