Luminaria how to...
Written by Chris Gonzalez
Luminaria are probably the most notable item of all when it comes to Relay. So much focus is put them as a tool for both celebration and fundraising. This is for good reason too... the luminaria ceremony is a key event in all Relay's. I can remember that when they first spoke to me about the luminarias, my first thoughts were "I'm going to draw as many as I can!." That year I did the majority of my fundraising through luminaria and I did end up drawing up a storm the day of relay. It was a great experience.
In later relays I feel like luminarias weren't playing as big of a role as they could, at least in southeast cities. Here are a couple of quick and easy ways you can use luminarias to spike up your fundraising meter.
