I recently found out about an awesome summer camp for teen film makers. You go there, and make 4 movies in 2 weeks, learning all the fundamentals along the way. The camp is in association with the Sunscreen Film Festival, which has attracted big name actors and filmmakers to the St. Petersburg area. The workshop costs 500 dollars to attend, and I have to raise all the money myself. I already have almost 200 from doing some of the things on this list. I hope that some of these things will help you to raise money.
1. Mow lawns for relatives, friends, and neighbors.
2. Save your allowance.
3. Set up a table outside of a big business like Wal-Mart or K-mart, and ask for donations. You could buy a bag of candy for cheap, and tell the people if they donate they get a free piece of candy. Its a good way to help the process along. You should check with the store manager for permission.
4. Write letters or email organizations such as Optimist clubs and Rotary clubs, (ones that support charitable causes, or youth development) and tell them your situation. Tell them how much money you have, and how much you need. If you write a good letter/email, chances are they might donate.
5. Set up a fund-raising widget on your website. ChipIn makes a cool one.
6. Babysit. If you know anyone who has kids younger than you , and works during the day, you could offer to babysit for them.
7. Pet sit for neighbors on vacation or walk dogs for elderly people.
8. Search craigslist.com for odd jobs that people need done, or post a service you are willing to do.
9. Wash or detail cars in the neighborhood.
10. Put up fliers at your local convenience store, (or post on craigslist.com), for general house-cleaning services. Sweeping, polishing, cleaning out garages, washing outside of house, etc.
