Sometimes people just don't want to buy anything. They don't eat pizza or peanuts, they don't need any more candles and have been to more than their share of spaghetti dinners. Sometimes, people would prefer to just donate money directly to the cause. Below is an example of a certificate. You can make your own, showing directly where the funds will be going. I suggest keeping the certificates that you receive in a file so you can send thank you notes to those who contribute. If you use these funds for a mission trip, I suggest you send the people a post card of thanks!
