Bowl-a-Thon season 2016 is coming up!
The Bowl-a-Thon is an annual fundraising campaign to raise money for reproductive rights through a series of small events and grassroots fundraising done over the course of a month. In 2015, we raised over $8,000 to help fund abortions!
If you wanted to be involved in 2016, you'd just find 3-5 likeminded friends, create an awesome team name (like Reproductive Justibusters!), and figure out how your team is going to raise $750. Each individual commits to raising an equal share, so you can all do your own thing (ask that wealthy pro-choice aunt for your $125—DONE!) or you can put together a small joint fundraiser like a poker night, yard sale, clothes exchange, cakewalk, change drive, or all of the above.
The actual bowling comes in at the end of the month, when all the teams get together for a big party at a bowling alley. We bowl and give out prizes for best costume, most money raised, most creative fundraising event, etc. You don't have to be a good bowler! In fact there's a prize for lowest score :).
