I’m at almost 45% of my monthly support needs and while I am seeing some positive movement, the last $5000 dollars a month seems rather daunting. But luckily for me, I know a lot of creative people. And although the ideas may not always be practical or in some cases legal, it’s nice to be able to explore my options. So please know that I am open to suggestions but do not be offended if I don’t actually add it to my official support raising strategy.
Creative Support Raising Suggestion #1: Banana Smuggling
Bananas are really expensive in Perth. $17 per kilo, which is almost $8 a pound. Getting into the banana smuggling business could potentially be quite lucrative. And metal detectors don’t detect bananas.
This suggestion gets a 9 for creativity and a 7 for potential profitability but ultimately will not be put into place because I am not ready to get into the grocery business which seems like the most obvious way around the legal issues.
