A fun activity for any function, is Buy a Balloon. Make strips of paper that read You’re a Winner. For every You’re a Winner paper, create 9 strips that say, Sorry, Better Luck Next Time. Slip one paper into each balloon before you blow it up.

With wifi becoming increasingly accessible, WhatsApp made my life so much easier and saved me a lot of money! 

WhatsApp will allow you to message any of your contacts that also has the app. By using WhatsApp, I avoided my per text charges that I would have been assessed. We even conducted an experiment and found that messages sent with What’s App came through faster than did those that were texted - as long as both parties had wifi available. 


In addition to basic messaging, WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video, and audio messages.

Sell each balloon for $5 or five for $20. When a balloon is purchased, your attendees will know instantly if they’ve won.

You can choose the prizes for the winner, whether it is different amounts of money or to be selected from a prize table, your attendees will enjoy the fun game, and you will love the proceeds.

To really make a hit, fill the balloons with helium and have volunteers circulate, each carrying a bouquet of balloons.
