One parent says: "The kids liked helping sell the tickets, and they also drew the winning tickets for the prizes. It made them feel more involved with the fundraising."
One parent says: "Be creative! The baskets are beautiful, and people think this is a great idea. Our school made $2,000 this year."
One parent says: "This is very easy to do. Parents love it, and kids love to see their own artwork reproduced. It celebrates each child's creativity!"
One parent says: "Incredibly simple! All we had to do was take the orders, turn them in with the payments, and the candle company rep took care of the rest."
One parent says: "Box up and sell everything you haven't used over the past year. I know it's hard, but it's for your own good and the good of the school. The school gets 100% of the profits. You get a clean house."
One parent says: "People like to leave a lasting impression. Just have someone willing to double check the spelling of names, etc., before the bricks are made and put in place."
One parent says: "This is a great possibility, if you can find a cooperating nursery and charge a decent amount for the flowers. Plus, many people find it easier to pick up the plant on their way home, rather than actually going to a nursery."
One parent says: "Tupperware has an exclusive fundraiser line with items that can't be found in the regular catalog. It's best to have a 'kickoff night' where parents, students, and teachers learn what's going on with the sale."
One parent says: "Use the power of the sweet tooth to your advantage. Candy sales are easy to organize, easy to manage, and easy to make a profit."
One parent says: "Parents have the potential to email their school's account number nationwide, and friends and family from far away can order a book locally to their area and the school still gets the credit."
One parent said: "With a little sweat up front, your school will come away squeaky clean — 100% profits minus the cost of the simple supplies."
One parent said: "The pizza kits truly do sell themselves. The cookie dough that the company offers was also extremely easy and profitable."
