OK, so maybe you’ve been on the fence about organizing or jumpstarting an event for a while. It can be daunting task to get that spark of inspiration initially, especially if you want to come up with something super clever and worthwhile. Sometimes, though, all it takes is a little brainstorming to get the ball rolling toward a fantastic charity event idea. We know that first step can be a challenge, so we’ve done a bit of the work for you and came up with some quick thoughts and concepts you can use or read for encouragement to come up with your own dare. As you go over these dares, keep in mind the type of people you are targeting, how tangible the actual event could be and ways it could turn into a success.
Dares in the workplace
We’re going to use Jeremy as the example in these dares, but feel free to exchange his name for your own favorite colleague or even your boss, provided you can get the backers to support it! Getting people together at work can be a nice break from the daily routine and bring co-workers closer over a good cause.

Fun celebrities to target for dares
Stars in the limelight who love to have a good time and act a little goofy will be the best type to involve in a silly and exciting charity dare. For instance, comedians like Will Ferrell, Russell Brand and Tina Fey are always good bets. High profile celebrities such as Brad Pitt work well too, especially those who have been known to appear in cameos of internet videos and silly parody songs, showing they have a good natured chuckle at their own stardom. Remember to appeal to something close to their heart, and make them do something they wouldn’t normally volunteer for!
