Employees love watching their superiors complete embarrassing tasks. See just how much it’s worth to them by hosting an embarrass the authority fundraising competition.
Start by choosing an embarrassing task. It shouldn’t be anything too mortifying, but it should be embarrassing enough that donors want to see it and participants don’t want to do it. A pie to the face, a dunk tank of ice cold water, or a silly outfit should do the trick.
Next, ask a few popular (and good natured!) leadership figures in your office if they’d like to participate. For each person that gives you their permission, set out a small bucket labeled with their name and photo.
Leave the buckets out for a week or so. Employees can vote with their dollars for the figure they’d like to see complete the task. At the end of the week, all the money is donated to your cause. The employee with the most money in their bucket will complete the task in front of the entire office.
It will be a day at the office your staff will never forget!
