I am curious to see what would interest most people when having to buy to support a group in their fundraising efforts...Edited by: Charlee

I wish I could pick two! I chose children because its a natural fit for me. Candles run a close second. I love a good candle!

In gratitude,

Natalie

Janette,
I said candles, thinking Scentsy - because they are different (not the normal candle fundraiser). I would imagine all could be repeat sales too, but with Scentsy, people will run out of their scents (or want another one), and will want to order more for that warmer they ordered from the event.

My secondwould be the gourmetfoods because, again, it would be different (alternative to the pizza fundraisers), and quickly consumable (and low-cost).Edited by: thatspagirl

Mods aren't allowed to vote, but I would vote products for children. I'm stuck on one brand of candle and am really picky about food (love Wildtree), but am always willing to spend on quality educational things for ds.

Wow! I am really surprised. I thought Tupperware would get the most votes and children's products would get the least. This is interesting...

I also vote for food.
Our team does lots of fundraisers - and there are many products that are $5-$10 (or more). We have had junior high bands do good fundraisers with Homemade Gourmet.

I do love Gold Canyon Candles though - so if there was an area group doing a fundraiser - I typically support that too.

Think about it: Boy Scouts and GIrl Scouts - what do they sell? Popcorn and cookies. It does sell and it is a very profitable business for their groups.

I voted for food, too, because most companies have lower cost items that are always good to keep on hand when entertaining or if you need to bring a dessert or appetizer to someone else's home. I do like Tupperware and Children's items, but for a fundraiser, I don't think you can go wrong with food.

I voted Usbourne, etc. I love the idea of buying books to help a cause and then at the same time promoting reading and education by passing the purchased items forward. I like the idea that I think it makes my charitable dollars go even further.Edited by: cloud9
