1. Donate your birthday
Ditch the presents and let’s get charitable! How about requesting donations instead and using your age as a suggested amount? I mean, who needs another tie or candle set, am I right? This thoughtful act will not only show off your selfless side but also inspire your friends and family to join you in making a difference. So, let’s make your special day a celebration of something bigger and with your help we can celebrate changing the world.
2. Throw an event
Let’s get the party started! Creating a fun, meaningful experience for you and your community is easier than you think. We’re talking events that bring people together, ignite creativity and support a great cause. The best part? You don’t need to break the bank to host a blast. Whether you’re into big bash or intimate gatherings, there’s an event for everyone.
Some crowd-pleasing activities to consider are film screenings, music concerts or sports tournaments. For those craving something a bit more intimate, how about drag bingo night or a raffle at your school? Feeling ambitious? An open mic night or fashion show is sure to keep your guest on their toes. Even dinner with family or a virtual hangout can be a hit. So go on, make your events as unique and unforgettable as you are.
3. Take on a challenge or achieve a goal
Listen up, folks! It’s time to give yourself a challenge and push those limits. Want to try pottery, dance lessons, or perhaps climb a mountain? Let’s go for it! But why stop there? You could cut back on your coffee, learn a new language or start a new resolution!
*Insert high five*
And every time you hit a new milestone, let’s make it rain with sponsorships. Come on, you know you want to show off those new skills and brag about your achievement. Challenge accepted? Let’s do this!
4. Honor a loved one
Let’s honor someone who has rocked our world! Whether they’re a gender-bending superhero, a mentor who’s pulled us up by our bootstraps, or simply someone who’s had our backs since day one, let’s take the time to celebrate them. In the words of Cyndi Lauper, “Girls just wanna have funds!” So let’s make it happen and raise some dough, all the while commemorating the person who has made a positive impact on our lives. Share your best stories and reflections- let’s make this tribute rock!
5. Do something wacky
Get ready to shake things up! It’s time to let your inner wild child out and do something hilariously wacky. Want to run a marathon dressed as a giant hotdog? How about taking a refreshing polar plunge in the middle of winter? Or dyeing your hair the colors of the rainbow? The possibilities are endless! You can also turn your wacky idea into a fundraising opportunity, set a goal and promise to fulfill it if your supporters help you reach it. Just make sure you have your camera ready to capture all the laughs and share it with your crew and Have A Gay Day too! Let’s show the world how fabulous and fun activism can be!
