Give your colleagues extra inspiration to donate to you. The guys at NetApp did exactly that when they promised their colleagues that if they hit their $1,000 fundraising goal, team 'Gone Fishing' would hit the streets in gorilla suits. All the teams wanted to raise funds for a great cause but were also keen to get as many people involved and up from behind their desks. Who doesn't want to see their Director walking around in a gorilla suit? On top of this challenge, the teams used Facebook, Twitter, Emails and had offered home baked goods to get everyone excited.
