The Road is Looking a Little Rough

I feel like I am at a crossroads right now.

Early registration deadline is in two days and I'm not entirely sure if I want to still go on this trip. I've crunched the numbers and it will cost at least $800. I have that in my savings but I was hoping the fundraising would pick up because I don't want to deplete my bank account. I've only sold three shirt and have yet to receive a donation. I'm not writing this to ask for money or promote anything. I just have no idea what to do at this point and I would like some feedback. I have a couple of ideas and would love it if you would help me out.

I have two fundraiser ideas at the moment: selling ad space for this blog and holding an on-campus fundraiser (i.e. selling snacks or baked goods).

Also, if you have any cheap travel and hotel ideas, I am receptive to anything, within reason.

I don't want to abandon this project, but my current efforts aren't working.

What do you think? Leave a comment.

  1. I know students at my school have gone door-to-door around offices on campus and asked for donations. That's always been successful.

    You could also ask your journalism department if they would sponsor you, or if they have any helpful scholarships.
