    Default Kids raising funds for others

    My kids are raising funds to sponsor two needy children at summer camp. The cost of the sponsorship is $100 per child. I need ideas for my 14 and 9 year old to raise the funds for this sponsorship.

    Their first fundraiser is to bake a variety of goods and place in fellowship hall at church. Church members will take what they like and leave a donation. I fully expect to raise at least 1/2 the $ this way. We have a very generous church family.


    What else can they do? (All our clutter has gone to the youth rummage sale, so that's not an option.) Thanks for any suggestions!

    Could they cut grass for donations? How about other yard work for maybe elderly in the church? I was going to say yard sale, but you say stuff is already spoken for.
    How about taking donations of stuff from family or close friends to sell at yard sale?
    Could you afford ingrediants for mini pizzas? Maybe you could make several and freeze - then the kids could offer them as well at the bake sell.
    They could also sell cans of pop at the bake sell.
    I am sure you are proud of your kids. You should be - that's a very nice thing they are doing. They will also get a lot out of it, knowing they are helping someone less fortunate.

    How about a car wash? That would raise a lot of money.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! They'd be willing to do just about any of those. Yeah, they're good kids. There's quite an age difference, so I have to look for ways to include both of them, whatever I do. I'll let you know how it goes!!

    This might sound kinda gross but...what if they offered their services to scoop the poop out of peoples back yards? I know I'd sure pay to have someone do that.

    Could they do odd jobs like yardwork? If you have bottle deposits in your state maybe they could have a pop can drive. A local group does that here to raise money to may for the annual 4th of July fireworks.
