Canning for a Cause
Stand outside a store/establishment with a bucket and ask for money.
This you can do alone or with another person. You must get permission from the stores in advance. Stand outside your local grocery, liquor or discount store wearing as much pink as possible and carrying a large PINK bucket. Speak to each and every person that enters and leaves the store and the hook line is "I AM WALKING 60 MILES FOR BREAST CANCER!"
If you want to set up a table with information you can do that, we had people sign ribbons for any donation over $5.00 and we carried the ribbons on our walk that year. We wore big pink ribbon costumes and that is where the people pinned the ribbons to.
The trick is to speak to EVERY person that comes in or goes out. If you are doing this alone- scope out a grocery store that only has 1 exit/entrance door, that way people don't walk that extra mile to avoid seeing you on their way out the door.
