Safe Toy & Gift Fundraisers

Share it Please
December is Safe Toys and Gifts Awareness Month, which makes the topic a great theme for your upcoming fundraisers. The concept would particularly be fitting if you’re planning an online fundraising for nonprofits, whose cause is related to child welfare or disabilities. Here are some ideas you can try which can be carried out (in one or more ways):
  • Solicit toys or gift items that are labelled/proven safe or recommended for certain age groups, and sell them online. For instance, you can limit the donations to items for newborns or for toddlers. Aside from playthings, you can also look for accessories or apparel for children, baby essentials like strollers or diaper bags, etc. Make sure that all items are made of safe materials and designed to be non-hazardous to its users.
  • Alternatively, sell appropriate toys or gifts for children with disabilities, such as talking dolls for children with blindness or interactive books and gadgets for children with autism or attention deficit disorders (ADD). Research the items that would truly be beneficial or appreciated by kids with special needs, so you know what you will solicit.
  • As another variety to the selling event, let generous individuals or corporations buy these toys and gifts for the beneficiaries of your organization. If you don’t have any yet, partner with orphanages, special education schools, and other institutions to find recipients for the sponsored gifts.
