Give people peace of mind on Halloween night by selling “Goblin Insurance” to raise money for your journey. Halloween has a way of drawing out neighborhood pranksters, and the messes they leave can be a creative opportunity for you.
Insurance policy printouts
For $10 per residence and $20 per business, sell insurance policies in which you and a group of volunteers agree to clean up any messes that might ensue on Halloween night. This insurance covers litter, soaped windows, toilet paper, etc., but it does not include repairing any vandalized property, such as broken windows.
Print up homemade copies of the "Goblin Insurance" policies that have your name and phone number, a description of the policy agreement, a given time by which to report the damages (i.e. 3 pm, November 1st), and why you are raising the money. It helps to be humorous and creative in your design. Sell the policies door to door (accompanied by an adult). Let it be known that the purchaser does not get a refund if no damage occurs.
Ask your friends and family to help you out by cleaning up the messes after Halloween.
Note: You might be tempted to offer "protection" instead, and threaten to make your own Goblin mess if they don't purchase your insurance. We don't recommend this.
