Need extra funds for your club? Here are some fun ways to raise money!
Tie-dye Day- Host a day for people to tie-dye. You will provide the dye and people can bring their own t-shirts. Charge people a certain amount to participate. Wear your new tie-dyed shirts to school, a birthday party, or a fun event!
Message in a Bottle- Sell messages in your school paper. Parents may want to wish their children a happy birthday. Students may want to put in a funny photo. Teachers might use the space to congratulate a student on a job well done.
Calendar sale- Your club members can submit a drawing or a photograph to put in a calendar. Sell these calendars to friends and family. Bonus points if the drawings or photographs reflect your service projects!
Pie in the face- Have students and teachers volunteer to get a pie in the face! Charge people a certain amount to pie their best friend or favorite teacher.
