Fundraising Ideas That Work
How to raise $500 to $5000 quickly for your school, church, sports, or public service charity.
My friend, Mary, is the principal of a church based kindergarten through 6th grade school. Over the years, they have had many fundraisers. This year a few parents said to her, “No more junk food fundraising, PLEASE!”
Mary bounced the problem off me and I suggested: Smencils.
Smencils are scented pencils made in an Earth friendly way. They are made from 100% recycled newspaper that is infused with a gourmet liquid scent that will last for 2 years. Each individual Smencil comes in is a corn-based biodegradable freshness tube. It is a fun fundraising item that is also kind to the environment. And, everyone needs a pencil that smells good.
I personally like Fundraising.com. They have Smencils. Their free guide is very helpful as a starting point.
Yep, the Smencils come in Bubblegum, Cinnamon, Tropical Blast, Grape, Cotton Candy, Very Berry, Black Cherry, Orange, Watermelon, and Rootbeer scents.
Kids love to collect them
Kids love to collect Smencils! Ordinarygirl951 made a video of her private collection. She has an opinion about each scent. Fun!
The 5th Graders at Long Meadow Elementary School in Rochester Hills, Michigan made a movie:
Two boys made an Apple type commercial of Smencils:
