    The main point here is charity.

    I have a maid who is very good, but also very poor. I want to raise some funds so that I can help my maid's three kids pay their school fees.

    I can't afford to educate them all, as I am already taking care of their uniforms and school bags. The school fees and books are extras which I want to do some fund raising for.

    Tell me some good fund raising ideas.

    How about a "boot sale"?  You'd need a business to let you use their parking lot.  People sign up to have "miniture yard sales" out of their car trunk (boot).  You charge $5 or $10 for a trunk, or $10 or $15 for a truck bed.  Their sales profits are theirs.

    Or how about a raffle?  Ask local businesses to donate goods or gift certificates.

    You could ask local business people to sponsor a year of education for one of the children.  Good PR for them - something to stick on their website and advertising?

    You could hold some events - quiz nights, street party, disco, bring-and-buy sale and sell raffle tickets?

    Hold a sponsored walk, swim or cycle - or a sponsored football match?

    Good luck - hope you get the money.

    Tis the season for Charity!  No doubt you will be going to a lot of parties.  See if you can do a silent auction for her at one of these parties.  what you will be auctioning off is her services as a maid for maybe a day.  Explain to party guests ahead of time what the cause is for and maybe they will pay top dollar for a house cleaning..

    Or you can silent auction a donation from a local buisness and have proceeds go to her.

    or if you like organizing things amybe hold one of those events where you auction off people as dates for a day. I can't rememeber what it is called but those are always fun..

    Well thanks for giving something to think about besides work today!  maybe i will have more ideas later..

    If you contact various charities some might volunteer to sponsor you for there advertising. If a charity helps a child go to school then can generate a load of money off the news of the action.
