Walk a Mile in Her Shoes!!

The Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault is having their 5th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event to raise awareness against sexual assault. It is an awesome cause and men get into high heels and actually walk a mile to raise awareness! Women and children are also able to walk but are not required to wear high heels! I am doing the walk and I am trying to raise money for the cause! I already have money going toward it from the bake sale that we had in February! Hopefully I can raise more! I am on Team UIS and we currently have raised over $400 dollars! GO TEAM UIS!

If you are interested in donating here is my website! Please donate what you can to this awesome cause!

Fundraising!!!!

Heyy Everyone!
Today I had my first meeting as being president of Alpha Phi Sigma, the Criminal Justice National Honor Society! It was a lot of information about how to run a student organization and the rules and guidelines! After the meeting, the vice president and secretary and I got together and did some talking about the organization! One thing that our organization raises money for is the Brian McMillian scholarship. Brian McMillian was a graduate of UIS and a Illinois State Trooper who was killed in the line of duty. We now give a scholarship to a student in name of him! We want to raise a lot of money this year so that maybe we can give more than one scholarship in name of Brian McMillian! Only problem is, we do not have a lot of member since it is an invite only club, and we do not have any good ideas for fundraising!
So I ask you, what are some fundraisers you may have done in the past? What fundraisers have you done that have been super successful, or even ones that weren’t that successful? We will take any ideas that we get! Also if we do set up fundraisers, we would love if people who are not involved in our organization to help out! It is for a good cause and the more the merrier!

So if you have any fundraising ideas, please comment on this and let me know what your thinking!! Thanks!
