Can you use your wedding dress for fundraising?

I was thinking about this the other day when I ran across an article about a lady that climbed mountains for cancer charities in her wedding dress. Most of us have heard of typical fundraising oppurtunities but this one was new to me.  In Anne-Marie hopes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in a dress, but it seems that that is currently prohibited in their guidelines for safe climbs.

Of course that isn’t as strange as what principal do for their kids at school once they reach a fundraising goal. See below.

Who doesn't want their first kiss to be a pig?

This was the deal, if his students made $15,000 in sales, Gerard Lotz would don a wedding dress and Principal Denise Bourgeois would wear a tuxedo, naturally, to be the groom. When administrators asked the students to pick a goal for the deal, the odd wedding scene was tops. Teachers joined in the merriment and dressed in an array of gaudy bridesmaid dresses.  Hopefully when doing some PTO fundraising you can come up with something for your school that gets the kids interested and motivates them to be involved.

On top of that agreement, Lotz promised to kiss a pig if the students reached $20,000 in sales. Though the participating students didn’t reach that goal, he decided to take the plunge anyway.

Have you guys ever heard of other way to raise money from other blogs or even CNN Money?
