Ways kids can raise money for animals
Organize a walk-a-thon
Organize a walk-a-thon at your school (with advance permission), or organize a group to participate in the annual MHS Mega March for Animals, held in early October. To hold a walk-a-thon, simply invite others to participate in collecting donations from friends and family, and walk on the event day!
Hold a Wish List Drive
Click on MHS’ current Wish List to find out what supplies are needed by our three adoption centers and hold a wish list drive to collect those items. Advertise at your school (with permission) or in your neighborhood and find a designated area to collect items. Get a few representatives to take the supplies to the nearest MHS Center for Animal Care and see the animals who will benefit from your hard work. You can also do specific drives such as a used towel drive or food drive.
Hold a Pop Can or Coin Drive
Hold a pop can or coin drive with a clever name such as Cans for Cats, Pop Cans for Pets, Pennies for Pets, Dimes for Dogs or Cash for Cats. Place canisters in your classroom to collect money for the animals. You can also hold car washes, bake sales or other events to raise money for the animals.
Battle of the Bands/Dances
Coordinate a Battle of the Bands, school dance (with permission) or other function and sell tickets with the proceeds to benefit the Michigan Humane Society.
Come up with your own idea!
Maybe you have another creative idea! If you have questions, please contact the MHS Volunteer Department or call Jamahl at 1-866-MHUMANE, ext. 123.
