Chapters are always looking for creative ways to raise money for service projects, attend International events or to donate. The MOMS Club of Schertz, TX shared their fantastic Santa photo fundraiser.
Any parent who has waited in line at the mall with small children in order to get a picture with Santa knows that there must be an easier way. And in Schertz, there was! Their December monthly meeting was a Polar Express Pajama party topped off by a visit from the big guy himself. The kids all had a chance to visit with Santa and get their picture taken by one of the chapter’s members, who happens to be a great photographer. Members could then buy the digital images for their own use for a nominal fee. Proceeds from the event help sponsor a birthday party for an emergency shelter and foster home located in the area in March.
You don’t need to wait until Christmas to do something like this with your chapter, there are lots of photo related holidays coming up! Valentine’s photos, Easter bunny, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day… if there is one thing parents love it’s great pictures of their kids.<return to newsletter>
