Teacup Candles For Fundraising

Here's a great fundraising idea that my Relay for Life team developed. We purchased 60 small teacups and saucers off eBay. We took the cups to a local candle making shop and had them put a wick and scented candle wax in the cups. (They gave us a discount since we were raising money for American Cancer Society.) We then glued the tea cups to the saucers, put them in cellophane bags and tied on a pink ribbon. We sold them for $10 each, with the proceeds ($400) going to American Cancer Society.

I think this is really a neat craft! I am particularly pleased by the cause for which you made them. As the Mom of a child who is 3 years Cancer free, I am thankful for your efforts! I think that the same idea could be used with mugs for a masculine approach. Also, I suggest posting a request for the necessary supplies on your local freecycle or freeshare. You'd probably get a lot that way.
