They are now working onorganizing individual parties, for fundraising to happen.

The total bill for the2012 All Souls Procession was $74,000, right now the organizers still have$12,000 to pay off.  Most of this is donewith donations that have come in from small businesses and individuals andgrassroots fundraising.

Other non-profits havedone similar party programs, here is how it works. 

People sign up to host aprivate party, they pick up a DVD to show, then there are handouts that breakdown how money is raised and how it is spent.

All Souls organizers haveten parties set up so far, all of them private functions, so if you do not knowsomeone hosting one, you can still sign up today.
