3. Swear Jar
Why not try a Swear Jar? We all use the wrong words sometimes. Do you know a real potty-mouth? This is your chance to teach them a lesson … and raise some funds for your Youngharts Heroes efforts.
Find an empty jar, any container with a lid or a tin like the one below and place it somewhere where lots of people go like your kitchen at home or the front of the classroom. Hopefully there is not much swearing going on in your classroom … but maybe there is another word that you can make the ‘Magic Word’ or the ‘Lucky Word’? Maybe Mum or Dad could take it to work?
Print a sticker or write on the jar and tell everyone the rules. We suggest $1 or $2 for each Swear or Magic/Lucky Word. Keep a check on the jar and make sure to empty it regularly if it starts to fill up. If it is at school or work, ask someone to put it in a safe place overnight and on weekends.
4. Chores for Charity
We all have important jobs and chores that we do everyday. Lots of them are not much fun. But they need to be done. A great way to raise funds is to do extra chores and jobs. Use the list below to give you some ideas, or go back to your list of WHO to ask and ask those people if they have any jobs you can do for them to help raise more funds.
