Would you pay to sing your favourite song… or would you pay to make someone stop singing? Either way there’s money to be made!

Karaoke is loved all over the world. Use this enthusiasm to your benefit and make some money for your chosen charity. All you need is a karaoke machine — which can be rented or purchased — a pile of CDs and a lot of willing victims… err, we meant to say volunteers!

Charge an entry fee or charge for each song. You could also put in a sneaky little audience charge… a small amount to stop someone from singing! (All in good fun, of course.)

Get friends and family involved too by making some food and putting on a buffet. Charge a small fee per plate of food or a flat rate for an “all you can eat” experience. If you hold the event somewhere with an alcohol licence, you can also charge for drinks.
