Chemo Buddies is a community based charity that needs your help. Chemo Buddies believe that everyone has talents and you have the opportunity to use your powers for good! Do what makes you happy and create a way that benefits our community whether it's though projects that produce items or money. Every talent and interest has a place within Student Buddies. Use the following list as brain food. Let it inspire you with fun ways to contribute. Don't be afraid to branch out on your own and create something new, this is not a limited list!
Make bracelets or necklaces with beads and sell them.
Host a "jean day" at your school or office, charging to dress more casually.
Host a themed day (like pajama day, superhero day, favorite color day etc.) for a small fee from each participant.
Have a something-a-thon! A basketball shoot out, a soccer ball kick off a jumping-jack competition etc. Each participant can pay a fee to join the competition and/or raise money by taking pledges per goal or jump.
Host an auction. Facilitate a silent auction, a Chinese auction, make tickets for a raffle or ask your fastest talking friend to emcee a traditional auction.
Have a recital or concert debuting your skills on a new instrument you've been practicing. Charge admission and donate the proceeds.
Like to cook? Host a bake sale and donate profits to Chemo Buddies.
Like sports? Play a game or tournament and charge a small fee to participate and admission to watch.
Like to build things? Sell your creations at a craft fair, science fair or expo.
