2. Jeans/Casual Day
Schedule a casual day at your place of work.

4. Bake Sale
Organize a group of co-workers or students to bake delicious goodies to sell in the break room or cafeteria.

Create a tournament for any activity or sport such as Baggo, Ladder Ball, Dodge Ball or darts.

6. Sell Make-A-Wish Holiday Cards

Sell Make-A-Wish holiday cards to family, friends and co-workers.

7. Holiday Donation
Instead of an office gift exchange consider making a donation to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin instead.

8. Use Book/CD/DVD/Video Game Sale
Collect these items from co-workers or fellow students and have a sale. This makes a great fundraising idea for schools and churches.

9. Interdepartmental/Friends/Family Competition
Challenge co-workers, fellow classmates, family and friends to a friendly competition like penny wars, selling Make-A-Wish stars, can drives, etc. Whoever does the best wins.

10. Decorating Contest
Hold a holiday decoration, pumpkin carving or office cube decoration contest. People vote by donating to the best design and whoever collects the most is the winner.

Be as creative as you like.
