Sell food and Products
Lemonade stand is one of the most common ways to raise money for kids. But you could get more creative and move to other food products and drinks. You could set up a campaign page online and sell your products online. Even if you go the old fashioned way and sell it putting your things on a table, make sure you highlight your cause articulately. All the proceeds from these sales could go towards your cause.
You could tie up with local businesses and ask them if they would like to donate items for your silent auction. It is a fun way of gaining more face time with your supporters while they are at the auction for some unique items which are up for grabs. Not only could it be enjoyable for your supporters and would help you spread the word about your campaign but it would also allow you to raise a lot of funds.
Host a Carnival

Charge a small fee to be a part of each activity. You could also sell food products to your hungry participants. From face painting to water gun games, you could think of a range of fun games. Whatever amount you raise as fees for these activities could boost your cause.
