    One thing I've found is that it seems like some businesses would like the request in writing. One or two of the places I called re: donations of gift cards or coupons for a raffle asked that I email or mail them some information about the event. I suppose you could still call them first just to sort of get their attention--although some of the businesses I called seemed too distracted to really hear me out on the phone. So, yeah, another point in favor of putting it in writing.
    Sponsor me in Climate Ride--a 320-mile charity bicycle ride that benefits environmental and bicycle advocacy nonprofits!

    I am on my sixth AIDS Lifecycle (SF to LA) and every year it gets harder and harder to raise the money. Minimum is #3,000. I have gotten creative with fundraisers and I make peppermint bark to sell at Christmas. But I am so committed to this cause I will do whatever it takes. My husband and I do the ride on a tandem so we both have to raise $3,000. We are examining ideas for a fundraiser this year which I hope can raise at least #1,000. Am going to start looking at silent auction and/or raffle items. It's not easy, but at this point, I can't imagine not doing the ride.
