3 Ways to Get Your Kids Involved in Random Acts of Kindness Week

What is a Random Act of Kindness, exactly? Well, it pretty much defines itself. An act of kindness is something unexpected done by one person that spreads joy to someone else. It can be planned in advance, making it no-so-random, or it can be done spontaneously. Whichever way you decide to spread kindness, the point is that you work towards bettering your community through small, simple gestures done on a daily basis.

How One of Our Marching Bands Raised Money for the Rose Bowl Parade [Free Case Study]

PCMB Marching in Rose Bowl Parade

Contrary to popular belief, high school marching bands perform more than just at Friday night football games. From community events to state-wide competitions, a lot of marching bands aspire to perform on big stages. One of our organizations, the Plymouth-Canton Educational Park Marching Band (PCMB) achieved just that by being selected to march in the 2016 Tournament of Roses Parade. But to participate, they would need to raise $500,000 to fund the costs of the trip.

In addition to using scrip to help cover their normal participation fees, the PCMB successfully raised the money they needed to make the trip to Pasadena, California. Download our free case study to get the details on how they made it to this once-in-a-lifetime event.

In this case study, you’ll get:

  • PCMB’s strategy for raising their funds
  • Testimonials from participants
  • Information about GLSC’s history of successfully helping organizations raise funds
