When I was 11 years old, I used to sell Christmas And All Occasion Cards, etc. door to door. This is no longer practical and I looked for a decent wholesaler but the all occasion card business isn't what it used to be in 1961. Although you could google Wholesale Christmas All Occasion Cards and see if anything appeals to you as good for fund raising sales.

Decide how much you can spend on advertising and what is available for free. Produce fliers and distribute them. You can mail them out, post them on bulletin boards or hand them out.

Make tickets that you can sell for the event. Many people will buy tickets, even if they are unable to attend the event.

Submit the event information to any and all community calendars. Generally, there is no charge for this service.

Use the internet to announce the event.
If you send an email to your friends and they send an email to their friends, the word will get out to a lot of extra individuals.

Ask local businesses to sponsor your event.  If they provide the money, they can write it off as an advertising expense and you can promote their generosity along with your event.

Publicity For Your Organization & Event
Publicity goes hand in hand with promotion, but it also goes a step further.  
Radio station and local television promotions reach the greatest audience.  Contact program directors about running promotional messages and the possibility of broadcasts from your event.  

Take lots of pictures during your event. These will make great press releases and thank-you mementos for sponsors.  

Always, always send thank-yous to your sponsors and promoters.  Send them directly to the sponsor and put thank-yous in the local newspapers.  Not only will it give your event more publicity, it will show your sponsors your appreciation of their generosity.  

Keep your organization in the news. Send press releases every time something happens in your organization, no matter how trivial it may seem.  The more you get your name out there, the more people will rally around your cause.

Editors Note
The funny thing about this diary is, that it stated out about a year ago with just the how to promote a non-profit event and it was so good that I decided to up date it and post it at Kos, and it just morphed into what you see! The artistic process is amazing!

When I first started posting here at Kos, a Commenter told me to "keep refining my art" They sounded just like the Chair from the Art dept where I work-studied in College. She's the one who taught me how to write. I typed proposals for her and absorbed her writing style. She graduated from Brown. So I listened and keep refining my art process.

OWS And Occupiers Everywhere, We've got the numbers. The more these gop politicians try to get tough. The more people will get upset and involved. History has proven that these big business bullies and provocateurs cannot win!

Detailed List Of Demands And Overview Of Tactics For DC Protest

Making flyers and signs (each sign could list one demand, written really large for viability), with the demands, would be good Flyers could be handed out to everyone.
Use muted colors, (tan, pastels, etc), on flyers (bright colors distract) and use Bold, Dark, Ink! Especially on signs because light colors don't photograph well.

For Winter Protesting

A good thing to help keep tents; etc warm or cool (shiny side in keeps heat in, shiny side out keeps heat out)., are Reflective Mylar Sheets. I bought a couple from Carol Wright Gifts (a catalog-Phone: 800-267-5750), a few years ago. They were $2.99 (+ s & h), for one that fits an ordinary window.

Here's links. They really work great! Solar Curtain 30" x 63" Curtain or 36" x 63" Curtain

You could ask people to save you their mylar balloons too and tape them up wherever needed.

Thermal underwear really helps also. And don't forget your thermal socks and hats, scarves and gloves! I always have thermal shirts and leggings in the winter! They really make a noticeable difference!

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.
Tagging tips - Search For Tags - Browse For Tags


More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

      At first I thought you meant walking on the log in water. I think I've seen that in movies. Then I understood you meant lifting it.It was kind of scary to me. I've never been all that athletic except for swimming, riding a bike and a few dance classes. So the thought of basic training has, always both scared me and filled me with awe!
      I was unconsciously holding my breath as you described holding the log up for so long.

      You can be assured that Joe gets away with plenty of things I would definitely not take from a civilian. One of the few perks of being a Vet is, PTSD is a very good excuse for misbehavior.

      And he's such a sweet guy, even if he is just a little insane! Oh yeah when I first met him I got a sample of Marine Core Vocabulary. Joe almost got slugged! But I understand now! I've never had a drill instructor screaming in my face so I didn't get it at first.
