What are some easy and fun ways to raise money for Susan G. Komen breast cancer fund?
Participate in the events they sponsor (http://cms.komen.org/komen/NewsEvents/index.htm). Make pink ribbon pins with some ribbon and a safety pin, sell them, and donate all the proceeds to Komen.
It's so great that you want to help - Komen does amazing work for women with breast cancer!
How can I enter the Susan G Komen for the Cure race? How much money do I need to raise?
I would suggest that what you're doing is wonderful for you and your mom. You have a very understanding mom. You can go on this website and get your questions answered.
Light the Night from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Unlike the Susan walk, you don't need a minimum donation to be able to participate. More than 40% of all childhood cancers are a form of blood cancer, usually Leukemia.
How can a kid start a non-profit fund like the Susan G. Komen Fund?
"Is there such thing as a profitable organization?"
Yes if they were keeping any of the money they made.
I think a lot goes into actually building a new non profit organization. And in words that she probably won't understand. As an adult, heck I don't understand some of it either.
My best suggestion would be for her to think up a *non profit project* of sorts. What can you do that will make money that you will then donate to an existing organization? Can you hold community events? Can you make crafts that you will sell? Can you provide services?
I don't really know how to make a non profit organization either, and I think a lot of work probably goes into it. But I have a PROJECT in the works of something I am doing that will hopefully generate money that I will then donate.
