  • You can sell Soy Candles. They're a huge hit with fundraisers! I know it's mostly boys on the team, but the candles are a huge hit!. Visit for more information or feel free to message me.

  • How cool you have girls as well participating. If someone could donate a very old and useless car you can spray paint the car to be a rival's team colors. Then sell two dollars a hit with a sledge hammer. You could have each homeroom donate as much change as possible and ask a pizza place to donate a pizza party to the winner. Or you could partner up with a local charity. 50% of the funds goes to the team and the other 50% goes to the charity. Hold a silent auction where people write bids down on the items donated. Local companies would be willing to donate items. Massages, book stores, limo company, local candle shops...anyone can donate. Have the kids solicit owners with the charities' tax i.d. number and have the kids sell the cause. Then this is a matter of learning about community needs as well as raising funds for the teams. Hey, the kids can learn something.
