World Youth Day 2013 - Fundraising Ideas

Fundraising is a necessary step for any group planning to attend World Youth Day. It also provides an excellent opportunity for young people to build community and for the parish community to witness the energy and enthusiasm of its young parishioners.

So how are you going to fundraise for World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro? Here are some ideas from previous World Youth Day pilgrims:

  • Cake stalls after Mass
  • Babysitting
  • Trivia nights
  • Car washes
  • Concerts
  • 'Sponsor a pilgrim' through the parish
  • Selling home-made Mother's Day and Father's Day cards
  • Raffles and silent auctions
Leave a comment and tell us about your fundraising plans and experiences!

Pilgrims at my parish ran a children's liturgy during Mass for a small donation - which was great as it also allowed parents to concentrate during Mass without distraction.

The Youth Group at my parish made 200 "frog in a ponds" pretty much jelly with a glucose frog in it we sold them for $2 each which was a pretty good profit margin and people were giving us $20 notes and telling us to keep the change we raised heaps of cash and got to help many students make it to World Yotuh Day.
