Best Fundraisers

The best fundraisers are the ones that are fun, fairly simple to organize and - naturally - bring in the most funds for your international adoption.

The number of fundraisers you can organize and implement while waiting for that awesome day when you get to travel and pick up your child are as many as your imagination. From the tried and true garage sale to a mystery dinner to selling candy. Virtually anything can be turned into a fundraiser.

So did you organize a successful fundraiser or two, or three, to help cover the costs of your international adoption? If so, what did you do, and what did you learn from the experience?

Share your best fundraisers with other readers of International Adoption Facts and Information. Using the form below, share with us your best fundraisers and how you successfully raised funds for your international adoption. And thanks for sharing!
