I Need Advice From You!

I am going to start doing fundraisers again, any suggestion from the big old world of bloggers? My mother and I do dinners and sale them in our local community which does fair, we usually make about $400.00 per dinner, which is a ton of work, but we don't mind. We have also had bake sales at local fairs. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!

I know this may sound tiny...but every year I do an on-the-side fundraiser for my CF Great Strides Team. Last year I made and sold jewelry. I made about $900. I know that's not a lot in the grand scheme of things....but every little bit helps! Good luck!

How about hosting a scrapbook crop? Our local Women's Club does one and so does our Local Lion's club. They charge $20 for each person. That person gets a table space (4 to 5ft), dinner, and usually door prizes. They contact local stampin up, close to my heart, and creative memories vendors who donate an item for the give aways. There are some great sites about hosting a crop. I think out Lion's club made $700 for a crop that lasted from 4 to 10pm.
If you have a local scrapbook store, they might be able to donate some items for give aways. A crop I went to also had a basket from a local salon, plants from the local nursery, etc.
Best of luck!

Oh and the vendors usually are at the crop to sell their stuff too. The one I went to also did a 50/50 raffle.

I Would Die For That
