Raising Money

Hi! I am starting chess lessons to raise money for charity (in specific- the Seattle Humane Society). I am an experienced player, but I am having difficulties finding students to teach. I'm looking for people who are interested in learning chess (AGES: 10-14). Can anyone help me? Thanks :)

Hmm, I am not good at marketing exactly but I would try to not focus entirely on Seattle if that is what you are doing right now. Chess can be played online so take advantage of that. Also, if possible, try to contact your elementary or middle school to perhaps have them spread the word about what you are doing.

I know that this might not be very helpful advice so I hope that someone else provides a better answer.
