Help Raise Money for Animals

At Home

Birthday Parties

Have a birthday party for the animals. Encourage friends to donate to RedRover to help save animals instead of bringing gifts like this kind kid, Kate.

Contact Erin Bialecki at for more information on RedRover’s Birthday Party Kits and party favors.

At School

Become an On Call Angel Classroom

Pennies for Pups
Organize a coin drive and encourage your friends and family to bring in their extra change to donate and help save an animal’s life.

Cookies for Cats
Sell cookies at recess

Pops for Pups
One classroom raised money by selling lollipops to other students and then donated the money to RedRover. Students receive cards with the animal they helped.

Contact Erin Bialecki at to become an On Call Angel Classroom.

Bring Kind News magazine to your classroom

Raise $30 for a classroom subscription so everyone in your class get this fun magazine five times a school year. Can each student bring in $1 at the beginning of the year? What about working with your Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to fundraise for one classroom or many? Bake sales, selling lollipops or by having a car wash are fun ideas to try too.
