Tips For Raising Money For An International Trip

By :- Louise Jackson, On August 27, 2017 in ::-Premium

Embarking on a trip outside of the country can be a wonderful and life-changing experience.  Exploring new destinations enriches your life in ways you didn’t even know was possible.

Unfortunately, as with all luxuries in life, travel has its price.  Some of us don’t have an unlimited black card to simply just “charge it” on a whim.  

Follow these money raising tips for those of you craving adventure, but find yourself on a budget.

Crowdfunding

Online crowdfunding is a great way to raise money.  Gone are the days of raising cash in a can.  

The advantage of using an online crowdfunding service such as GoFundMe, or Kickstarter is that anyone anywhere can donate to your cause.

Whether family, work colleagues or old friends, you have the added convenience of being able to reach out to everyone in your network. This is because they are able to contribute regardless of their location.

Organize a Car Wash

Believe it or not, car washes are still extremely successful ways to make cash! One thing will never change regardless of the economy, and that is that people will always need a clean car!

Throwing a car wash is a great way of raising money that you can have a lot of fun with.

When choosing a day for your car wash, make sure that you take a glance at the weather report beforehand. Obviously, a rainy day is not going to sell a lot of car wash tickets.  

Additionally, make sure you have plenty of volunteers lined up so that you can ensure maximum car washing productivity!

Sell Your Things on eBay

So many people find themselves with a garage full of boxes or closets full of old gear that they don’t even remember is there.  You could be sitting on a gold mine and you don’t even know it because you haven’t cleaned out your garage in 7 years. Digging through things you will probably never use again and selling your things on eBay is a great option to keep in mind.

One of the most common treasures that people come across when searching for valuable household items are collectibles such as baseball cards, toys, or games.  

Don’t stop there, however! Dig through your closets and seek out any name brand clothing or handbags. Video games, fine china, silverware! Put it all in a pile and look at the bigger picture.  An amazing trip of a lifetime? Or a bunch of stuff you’ll probably never even use again?  Let it go!

Take Out a Loan

If you’ve tried all these things and still fall a bit short, the last option is to take out a loan.  Choose a loan that you have a high chance of getting approved for and with flexible rates.
