Farmer’s Market

Once a week our community has a Farmer’s Market where local growers and merchants can sell their fruits, vegetables, and crafts.  We set up a booth to advertise our Gala Event, help raise awareness about trafficking, and raise money for the Kaysville Campaign.

Point of Sale Event: Grocery Store

We have all been asked at a store register if we would like to donate to a charity or worthy cause. This is referred to as a “Point of Sale” donation. The theory behind this is that it is easier to donate in one transaction, while in the process of buying something, than to ask for a donation in an additional transaction. We decided to do a point of sale fundraiser at Harmons which is a large well known grocery store in Utah. We thought this would be a great way to raise money and awareness for our Kaysville campaign as we were expecting about 4,000 customers to enter the store that day.  We were fortunate to have our event on a busy day (Saturday).

Bake Sale

We held a community event where friends and family donated items we could sale, such as baked goods, homemade crafts, crocheted hats, cards, etc. We joined this with an online campaign that we spread through social media to reach those who couldn’t attend the event in person.  As far as how we got permission, I simply went in with a few flyers  from OUR and talked with the manager. I think it helped that he was already familiar with Tim Ballard and felt this was one of the best causes to be a part of. He typically only allows fundraisers to come for two hours but he gave us four because of who OUR is.  I posted our intentions to host a fundraiser on two facebook pages-one from our neighborhood and another on a group of close knit friends from the surrounding communities. Both groups quickly responded with willingness to offer support. A few people I went up to individually because I knew of specific talents I felt they could offer. I basically invited them to help out in the following ways:
