I am captain of a Relay for Life team that raises money for American Cancer Society. For fundraisers, we enjoy making and selling things for each holiday (such as crafts or food items). For example, we are making and selling large candy Easter eggs for $5 each for Easter. I wondered if anyone had any suggestions for foods or crafts for Mother's Day and Father's Day. Thanks in advance for your help.
a. For both days, you can make bookmarkers, with ribbons and beads for Mom and painted on card for Dad. Paint on initials or zodiac symbols for more personalized items.
b. Decorate old bottles (wine, gin) with glued on beads or with sea sand (nicer than common sand) and use for a single flower or a nice dry berry branch or wheat. If you can cut the bottles, make them into candle holders.
c. make special dinner sets from felt/fabric or woven ribbons.
Feel free to e-mail me if need more details or more ideas. mailto:sylvia @ evadin.com.br (remove spaces)
Buy some plain gift bags and hand decorate with sequins, raffia, etc. & sell them. Everyone uses gift bags from time to time.
How about making and selling all sizes of tye-dye T-shirts?
Make & sell inexpensive goody bags for kids. Buy your stuff at a dollar store, Walmart & other stores might donate, if you tell what it's for.
Buy some plain white pillowcases & decorate in children's cartoon characters, some adult themes, & sell them.
Best of Luck, whatever you choose to do!
