Create a T-shirt Fundraiser Through Bonfire

CHOP is partnering with Bonfire to give participants a free and fun way to fundraise for your Walk for Hope team. Teams and individuals can design and sell their own shirts. Wear them at the event – or anytime you’d like! After your T-shirt fundraiser ends, 100% of the proceeds can be added to your DonorDrive fundraising page. It’s a win-win-win to raise your team’s spirits, spread your message of hope and support kids with IBD!
