Focus on Friend-Raising


Many churches, meetings, peace groups and individuals raise support for the work of CPT in  creative ways.  We share your stories as a way to say “Thank You!” and as an inspiration to others.

Columbus (Ohio, USA) Mennonite Church holds an annual rummage sale which raises up to $3000 for CPT.  The church is located on a main road in Columbus, so that helps bring in customers.  Everyone seems happy to get rid of unused things and people really pitch in and have fun.  It’s a two-day event, and the last hour is “fill-your-bag-for-a-dollar.”  That’s a huge hit!  What doesn’t sell goes to the local thrift store.  It takes some work to organize but it pays off.
