I recently learned a great fundraiser from Rev. John R. Bailey, District Sunday School Director of Illinois. You announce to your church that on a particular date you will be taking up a shoe size offering. On the purposed date of the offering, everyone in the church will give an offering the size of their shoes.
EXAMPLE: If you wear size 9 shoes, you would give a $9.00 offering.
A recent study approximated that the average shoe size in America is size 9.
- If you have 100 people in your church it would be a $900.00 offering.
- If you have 50 people in your church it would be a $450.00 offering.
This is an easy offering and you could make it a lot of fun by taking up the offering using shoes.
