If you have always wanted to do something to change the world and make a difference in the lives of those who need it yet never got around to doing it with the hustle and bustle of everyday life and a full time job getting in your way, it is important to simply stop one day and make the decision that you are going to get down to doing it and simply, do it. We are on earth after all to make it a better place where the money we earn from our nine to five jobs will simply get us through the month and the mountain of bills. With the growing number of homeless youth and adults alike increasing you may consider getting together with a group of friends and fundraising to start your own soup kitchen.
Create a plan for your charity dinner project
You will first need to make a decision about what kind of dinner project you want to do. You could take a look at some regular restaurants in your area and get an idea about the theme and atmosphere you want to create. You can do it either in the style of a take out fast food joint or in the style of an built in charcoal-broil. In honesty your options are endless.
You may provide food for the homeless free of charge at your restaurant while asking those who are not homeless but would still like to experience your style a nominal amount that would go in your charity fund. You may even speak to a number of fast food joints or outdoor bbq kitchens in Melbourne about helping your out with your project in terms of style.
Funding for your charity project
When you have successfully put your plan together you may create an official project proposal and approach companies and businesses for sponsorship in exchange for their logos and banners being associated with the project. You may offer each sponsor a number of sponsorship packages associated with different amounts of sponsorship money offering different benefits such as logo display, leaflet handouts and banners at each dinner event etc. Additionally, you may open up a gofundme account online and ask individuals to sponsor a meal. You could also use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube to create awareness about your project. Create a video about your project with information, costs associated with the project, statistics about the homeless, statistics on nourishment and touching images that you can share on social media. There is a strong chance this video can go viral. Offer your main sponsor the opportunity to have a short five second stream video before the video starts.
