Breast Cancer Bird House
My fundraiser this year is selling custom made bird houses. In memory of my mom who made many houses, it is a great way for people to donate to your cause and show their support for the fight against breast cancer.
I make these houses from scratch starting with a piece of plywood. Many times wood shops will donate smaller pieces of wood; the widest piece you need is only 5 inches.
Working with my local hardware store, they donated the cedar shingles and I bought a reduced price gallon of bright pink paint and a stamp. I can make 50 houses per sheet of plywood, so you can make quite a few if you have the tools to do it. I sell them for $30 each plus shipping, I have had a great response - I have sold 30 in a month.
If you don't have the skills for this fundraiser, feel free to purchase one of mine to help me reach my goal to walk in Washington DC this year! See my website Blistasistas.com.
