Garage Sale

Hold a garage sale, where the money creates a grand donation for Michae House. Have a garage sale on your own or organize an all-street or neighbourhood garage sale.

Casual Dress/Dress-Down Day

Arrange for a day at your workplace or school where coworkers or classmates can dress down or more casually in exchange for a donation to Michae House. You can even do this for work-from-home settings! It provides people with an opportunity to dress more comfortably while they appreciate their donations go to helping women and children in need.

Pancake Breakfast or Spaghetti Supper

This event option is perfect for a youth group, high school class, or any communal center. Offer a breakfast or supper in exchange for donations. It doesn’t just have to be pancakes or spaghetti either. It works with any other kind of food. The idea is to combine delicious food with fun while raising funds for the work at Michael House.

Silent Auction

Organize with your neighbours, parents at your children’s school, people in your church, or other members of your community to hold a silent auction where proceeds go to Michael House. Invite local businesses to donate items to the auction and publicize it on social media, local notice boards, and any local paper.

Run, Walk, or Bowl-a-thon

Run, walk, or bowl with family, friends, and the whole community! Create pledge forms, gather participants, collect support, and you’re off to the races (or alleys)!
