1. Valley Girl Jar

THE PLAN: Set up a charity jar that forces your annoying co-worker to drop a few bucks in every time he or she uses "umm" or "like" excessively. That way, you can fundraise for charity and get Karen to tone it down a little.

2. Armpit Fart Challenge

THE PLAN: Challenge your friends to a one-on-one armpit farting contest. The person who makes the loudest fart noise with their pit wins. The loser has to pay money to the charity jar. If you're great at armpit farts, this is your chance to do some serious good.

3. Fortune-telling


THE PLAN: Put on a silly hat and a blanket and invite your peers to have their future told by a "professional" fortune-teller (that's you now). You can instruct them that donating extra money couldn't hurt their chances for an improved fortune and can tell your boss that his stock would triple if he or she promotes you.

9. Nickname Generator

THE PLAN: Set up a small spot in your school or office for people to pay and collect their own custom-made nicknames. For a small donation, you'll create a super-cool nickname for traditionally boring people. Like "Larrick" — that's a cool name. Who wouldn't want to be called Larrick?

10. Gamble for Charity

THE PLAN: Here's a simple game: Invite your friends to participate in your fundraising event where you roll a set of dice to determine how much you donate. The range is anywhere from $2–$12. Just like Vegas.
