I had then decided to go a little more creative, and a little more crazy! I emailed a company called Streakers, and asked them if they would be willing to donate bottles of pink hair dye for my facebook pink hair challenge. They responded immediately with a yes!!! (roller coaster going up...) So I put out another note on fb, tagging everyone again. I told everyone that if they would donate $35 or more in the designated 3 weeks, I would put one pink streak in my hair for them and wear it for 3 months! ( I had to use the kind that washes out, since my employer denied my request to have pink streaked hair for a little while, even when I explained that it was a fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen foundation, it was shot down.) Well it was slow going at first, and at the start of week three I'd only gotten 3 people to donate (roller coaster going down again...), so only 3 pink streaks in my hair. And one donation was even from my parents!
I am hoping to get Streakers to donate their hair dye again, so that I can do this fundraiser again! This one actually worked; it's a keeper! This is an idea I recommend to try!
