Fold of the Week: Great Giving Campaign
Here’s what’s great about this week’s solution:
- It can be hard to come up with a creative and economical giveaway/freemium item for fundraisers. This one is production-friendly and really drives the concept.
- The luminary is a meaningful reminder of the hope, and the help, that a donation can provide. They’re creating an emotional connection with the recipient through a tangible object.
I love the candle concept — and I think this is a powerful idea for fundraising, holidays, and memorial events.
