$4,000 was raised with only 20 pies thrown! How did we do it?
Well, some would say that university students have pent up energy especially toward their professors, administrators and friends. Here are some of the key factors that made this event so successful.
1. A key professor surprised us and added that if there was at least $1,000 pledged before the event to toss a pie in his face he'd participate. Well, word got out virally and many pooled their money. $1,500 was pledged for that one professor when the day finally came. The tip: Find a key person whom your church or group would never expect to participate, but everyone would enjoy seeing a pie in the face.
2. Many want to pie their friends and will pledge money to be the one to throw the pie. Some came to the event not thinking they would have a pie thrown at them for a donation. Tip: Warn everyone that all who come to the event can be pledged to have a pie tossed at them for a good cause.
The event discussed was held by students in the fall of 2012 at APU.
What makes I Won’t Watch different, is that we empower our community to change the world with us.
We allow everyday people, organizations and even rock bands change the world and fund raise for their cause using our watches.Qualified Organizations (you) can sell our watches by purchasing them at a bulk rate
, and re-selling them for a set price that allows them to make up to $10 for every watch they sell. We also offer a generous 20% order buy-back policy, and give campaign management to make sure they always have enough watches. The process is quick, Fill out this simple form, we will give you an exclusive one time code, and order straight from the store.

Be careful with this one. Most of these are product sales, where the company makes money on your purchase of their chocolate or candles, etc. You might be supporting a company that you don't agree with, so do your homework so everyone is happy in the end.
