3 Ways to Make Annual Charity Event Planning Easier
There's Help Out There (It's Here)
You are knee-deep in planning for your annual corporate charity event. Last year, assembling the list of door prizes, auction items, corporate thank you gifts felt like it got out of control. Afterall, as the charity event planner, your job was to plan and to source, not to assemble gifts until 3AM.
You are not going to repeat that nonsense again!
There are various plans of attack on this portion of your responsibilities. And our best advice is to not wait until the last minute. Make an action plan at least two months in advance so you are ready to rock and roll when the time comes.
3 Quick Tips
Enlist help within the company. Depending on the scope of your event, drum up some volunteers and co-workers to help you ease your gift-assembly burden. It could become a fun workplace-bonding experience!
Ask your gifting sources. Perhaps your promotions company or sourcing partner offers a pre-assembly service. It can’t hurt to ask.
Outsource to a co-packer. Not all co-packers are created the same, but there are some that specialize in assembly. They are nimble enough to work with everything from hardware kits to gift baskets.
Because co-packers have an organized production line, once a protoype is approved they can turn assembly around many times faster than you ever could on your own.
