Fun-raiser at Home

For the fun-deficient, or those that can’t get away, we offer some hints and ideas on how to host a Fun-Raiser with your friends! Smiles are contagious. Imagine you are an anti-depressant- being publicly happy and generous of spirit is a public-health action. Fun-raising, for a moment, lifts us a little above this troubled world.
