Tip jar at charitable events acceptable

Post by lemonlimer29 on Tue Jun 12, 2012 12:37 pm

Hi Everyone: I've worked several charitable corporate events and didn't put out a tip jar because I ddin't want to offend anyone. I've noticed other facepainter in the past putting it out though.

What do you guys do? Sometimes there's no one there to ask if it's ok to put out the tip jar. I'm new and not sure how to handle this.

Thanks a lot..

I ask first, and if I'm making a percent donation, the tips are not included in the donatable total.

I have it on my list of things to ask ahead of time incase the onsite contact doesn't know (or is nowhere to be found).

It's on my contract:

May we put out a tip jar? ____ yes ____ no
May we put out business cards? ____ yes ____ no

Clients have to fill out the details on the contract and send it to me to have a confirmed event. This serves two purposes.... I have it in writing what they want and don't want from me at an event and if anything is disputed it's in writing. Also it allows me to keep up with all my events Wink
