Let’s Get Practical:
At Echo, our heart is to bring confidence in every aspect of your journey, including what is sometimes the scariest part, finances! The last thing that should keep you from this amazing experience is the lack of finances, but in reality, it is usually the first thing that comes to mind. Working for it always enhances the experience! Here are some ideas to help you raise funds for your life-changing weekend:
Get Sponsored - If you work for a company, church or organization, approach them about paying for the weekend or even part of it. Consider what you will be learning and how it would benefit them.
Family Support - Talk to your family about the call of God on your life. You would be amazed when you share, that some will want to invest even more in your call!
Go Online - Clean out those closets and sell stuff online through Craigslist or apps like OfferUp or Wallapop. Facebook neighborhood groups and Instagram are also great options.
Get Creative - If you are a maker, create something specifically to sell to raise funds. Or get a friend who creates to partner with you. Make sure people know why you are selling.
Serve Others - There are definitely ways you can serve others with your gifts! Let others know what you are good at and offer to serve them for a donation.
#1 Way to their heart - Any type of food always warms the heart! Get baked goods donated to sell at a large event like a dance or basketball game.
Be a babysitter- The oldest form of fundraising, good ol' babysitting!
Learn to Crowdfund - Use any number of crowdfunding sites like GoFundMe.com or GoGetFunding.com. For an ultimate response, share the link via social media or e-mail. This is a near effortless way to raise support, you just have to get the word out.
