Tuesday's Tip: PDF Champions

Coffee Anyone?

Fundraising for Parkinson's disease can be as simple as using your everyday contacts for support.

Just like myself, I know you frequent your local coffee shop more than you would like to admit. Be sure to take advantage of this special relationship in your efforts. Ask the shop manager or head barista if you can set up a donation container to collect spare change for your PDF Champions fundraiser or if you can display your event signage in the shop. Decorate it with green and yellow (PDF’s colors), quotes or pictures to really catch people’s attention.

You can even take this concept one step further. If you have a close relationship with any store owner ask if they would be willing to set up a point of purchase donation program. For example, if customers donate $1 at the register they receive 10 percent off their next purchase at the store or receive a free gift.

What has worked for you? If you are a past PDF Champion or fundraiser send me your successful ideas.

Remember: The Cure Begins with YOU!
