M&M Fundraiser

We all love M&M's. Now, we can make our love for chocolate benefit others!

Here's how:

Step 1: Buy yourself a tube of mini M&M's.

Step 2: Eat the M&M's. (This is our favorite step!)

Step 3: Use the empty tube to start collecting quarters. Look in your wallet, in between the couch cushions, in the cup tray of your car, ask your friends, ask your parents, etc.

Step 4: Turn in the filled tube of quarters at our Food 4others MobilePack.

Step 5: Repeat. (This time, get your friends involved!)

This simple project makes a big difference! A small mini M&M's tube holds $14 worth of quarters. $14 can provide 63 nutritious meals to severely malnourished children.

Get your school involved!

  • Practical Guide for hosting a M&M Campaign at a school
  • Instructional sheet for students
  • Promotional Flyer (8.5 x 11)
  • Promotional Poster (11 x 17)
  • This is the perfect fundraiser to get others involved. If you'd like more ideas on how to do a group fundraiser using M&M tubes, just contact us at food@4others.org.


    End Hunger Game

    What are the odds you'll go to bed hungry tonight? Around the world, it's 1-in-8. Let's make the odds better in their favor!

    The End Hunger Game (EHG) is a friendly competition to see how many meals you and your friends can raise in ONE DAY! Choose a single day and engage your social networks in the fight against global hunger. Set a fundraising goal and ask your networks to help you reach it. For instance, a goal of raising $1,000 will feed feed 12 children for a whole year (through the Food 4others MobilePack)! And $220 will provide 1,000 nutritious meals for a child in poverty. That's like asking 10 friends to donate $22 to this amazing cause.

    So invite your friends to join you in the fight against global hunger. Check out the resources below to spread the word. Happy End Hunger Game, and may the odds be better in their favor!

    End Hunger Fast

    We're going hungry so they won't have to.

    For 30 hours, join others in going without food and standing in solidarity with the hungry. Then, celebrate what you've accomplished by breaking the fast with friends over a meal.

    "God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they will be satisfied." —Matthew 5:6 (NLT)

    As you fast, ask others to support your efforts and your cause by giving a donation that will provide meals for starving children.

    Sponsor a Volunteer

    A few different groups raise funds with this approach. On average, a volunteer will personally pack about $50 worth of food (216 meals).

    Last year, one church chose to sponsor each of their volunteers by donating $50/person. Other churches facilitated and encouraged their volunteers to raise $50 each before the MobilePack event took place. Both approaches greatly contributed to funding and packing meals!

    Resources:

  • Sponsor Form

  • MobilePack Partnerships

    Help us spread the word about the MobilePack event while also building partnerships with businesses, churches, organizations, teams, etc. Simply sign and share the following letters with groups you think may be interested in making a difference through the Food 4others MobilePack!

  • Church Partnership Request Letter
  • Community Group Sponsorship Request Letter
  • Community Member Sponsorship Request Letter

  • Conduct a "Thon"

    Miles for Meals Walk-a-thon

    Consider hosting a "thon" of some kind: walk-a-thon, serve-a-thon, dance-a-thon, etc. The point is to get others to sponsor your involvement by giving to the cause or donating per mile/hour you participate. For example, we conducted a 19-mile walk-a-thon (when meals cost 19 cents each) in downtown Willow Glen of San Jose, CA.


    Host an Auction

    Consider hosting a silent and/or live auction as a way to involve the community and the talents of your group members in raising funds for the MobilePack! Perhaps pair up the auction with a dining experience or another event.

    Contact us if you have any questions or need tips on how to ask for donations from local businesses!

    Christmas can [still] change the world!

    Consider this: Americans spend over $450 billion on Christmas. On what? Christmas lights, greeting cards, fuzzy slippers, more toys... But, do your loved ones need another sweater or random gift certificate? Really? In lieu of one of "those" gifts, give them a gift that will really matter!

    It's simple: Give one less gift and instead use that money you saved to feed children! You can even choose to make a donation in a friend's name as their Christmas gift.
