FUNdraising - The Trick is M&M Treats

Not just Halloween -- this can work any time of year!

Safe Kids Grand Forks (Grand Forks, ND)

Want to get kids involved in fundraising? Hand out a "treat" of mini M&M's in the plastic tubes with a sticker promoting your cause on the outside. Ask them to collect quarters in the tube, fill it up and bring it back. Encourage them to search the closet floors, couch cushions, loose change on the dressers, etc. The quarters add up fast in the plastic tubes and when kids get excited about something, they are "eager askers". All totaled, you can fit about $16 - $17 in one M&M tube and that's a pretty good donation from a kid!!
