Ideas to do as a Family

  • Sponsorship Pledges - Ask friends, family, classmates, & coworkers to sponsor the meals that you will pack during the event. (Click here to download a pledge form.)
  • Potatoes for Dinner - Serve your family only potatoes for dinner one night and gain a better understanding of what a meal is like for many hungry families around the world. Put the money you saved on that meal toward your donation.
  • Skip the Soda - When you eat out, drink water instead of soda. Put the savings in your donation jar.
  • Coin tubes - You can request SPAH coin tubes to collect your coins in. To request a tube call: 608-658-4700 or email: jramthun@gmail.com
  • Bake Sale - One young girl invested $75 in baking supplies & raised $1,000 from selling cookies & brownies
