1 50-50 Raffle The raffle is a payroll raffle. Collect 5 on a specific day of the month. Collect the money, distribute a ticket or other item to each participant, then draw a winner. Then the drawing is held. The contributions are split with the winner gets 50% of the total raised and the other 50% goes to Ruskin Mill Trust. It is a win-win event. Alternative Gifts In lieu of receiving wedding, birthday, or other celebration gifts, request donations be made to the Ruskin Mill Trust instead. Auction Bath Beetle Draw Hold an "Auction of Promises" with donations of time, labour and talents auctioned off to the highest bidder. Some office auction items may include: air miles, annual leave days or invitations to attend corporate events from your place of business. Some general examples are: wine tasting evening for up to 10 people, making tea for a day for a whole team, baking cakes for a whole team, private lessons (swimming or dancing), flower arranging, organizing a room or closet, one week break in a holiday home in a popular destination, handmade bags, jewellery or even house cleaning. Fill the tub for a bath of beans or use other disgusting substances like tuna, soup, dirty washing up water, etc. Raise money based on timed increments, the longer you stay in the more money you raise for Ruskin Mill Trust. Using a guide, draw the body parts of a beetle corresponding to the number rolled on a die during your turn. The first one with a completed beetle wins. Bingo Bricks Ask people to donate prizes and collect donations from those wishing to enter. Invite a local celebrity or MP to call out the numbers. Award prizes to the winners along with cash pay-outs. The remaining money is donated to Ruskin Mill Trust. Fundraise by selling a place on either real brick or virtual online brick to show the donors name or message in a prominent place. Remember to include the link: on your promotional material Page ~1
