The Lambda Chi Alpha brotherhood at CSUN hosts a fundraiser to raise money for Inner City Arts, a philanthropic organization based in Los Angeles. They provide underprivileged students with the tools and skills they need to succeed academically and personally.
This year they partnered with Fratty Bear selling 321 items which made them a whopping $4000. After all expenses they were able to donate $1080 to Inner City Arts. This is how they did it.
They created a temporary ecommerce store where participants were able to purchase items and have them delivered directly to their homes, check out an example of this website here.
