This is one of those days where I’m asking for your eyes and ears and experience. One of the many benefits of blogging is being able to reach out and ask for the opinions and input of people who we have something in common with. And whether you have kids or remember being one yourself, you might be able to help.

I am serving as a co-chair of the Fundraising Committee for my daughter’s preschool. K will be “graduating” and going on to Kindergarten in the Fall, but then M will be stepping into preschool, so I’ll still be helping in some way.
One of the tasks at hand is planning for fundraising next year. Because it’s a co-op that aims to keep tuition low for everyone, fundraising plays a huge part in the school’s budget. We have a few fundraisers we know we want to continue, but I know there are a million other ideas out there. I’d love to hear what you’ve experienced– fundraisers that are fun, actually raise a few dollars and will appeal to our community-minded parents. Not necessarily catalog or affiliate sales, unless you’ve got one to recommend that’s really amazing, but events or ideas that are all-around wins.
I hesitate to post this because of all of the spam potential, but I know we have some clever readers with excellent taste, and I’d really like to hear your suggestions. If it becomes spam-ville, I’ll close the comments. (And if I get some great ideas, I’ll happily put them together in a post to share!)
You guys always have great ideas. I’m guessing this will be no exception!
