Fundraising Ideas for Girl Scout Trip

My Girl Scout troop wants to go to Europe in a couple of years. The promise of a trip is the only thing keeping them in Girl Scouts! We did the math and it will cost about $3300 a girl, and we have about 11 plus three troop leaders. We're looking for inexpensive ways to fundraise more than $33,000 in two years. Does anybody have any ideas?

Nolo Press, an excellent resource for books, legal forms, etc., helping people and groups accomplish many legal, etc., endeavors themselves-from Wills to Landlord/Tenant Law to 501C3 Non-profit Fundraising. They published a book for $29.99 (on sale right now) specifically for non-profit fundraising at the site below:

I would do a cookbook each year. You can find non-profit organizations that will print for very little. Each girl can enter their fav' recipe in categories like casseroles, etc. Crafter's could donate stuff to sell and set up a website to have others do the same. Good luck!!

I would happily pay a crew to help with spring yard work as well as spring house (and garage) cleaning. Surely I'm not the only one.

Garage sales with donated items. Raffles. Students in our area used to raise money by working bingos at local bingo halls for a share of the profits; I don't know if that is available any more in other areas, but it might be something to check out.

In our small towns, turkey bingos in the fall are popular as well as community suppers. And there is always selling food, such as pizzas, chocolate almonds, etc.
