Help your classmates share the love!
Happy February, Ambassador Leaders! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner which makes it a fantastic time to get out there and raise some money for your Summit tuition. People everywhere will by looking for cute and convenient items to get for their friends, family, and secret crushes. With just a bit of preparation, you can easily have items available for purchase for any last-minute shoppers!
Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday this year, so the best way to make your sale items available is to set up a table at your school for the holiday. Ask you school if you can sell your items in the days leading up to Valentine’s Day as well. Plan to sell goodies before school, during lunch or other breaks, and after school to give everyone time to shop.
Get creative with what items you can offer for sale, but make sure to keep the price in mind. The key with this fundraiser is to keep the sale prices as low as possible, so you’ll want to be thrifty when it comes to the items’ initial purchase prices. Luckily, you can find so many fun things for sale in bulk online which will help bring your start-up costs down.
Popular Items to Sell:
Individual red roses
Festive candy assortments
Most of the above items can be sold for as little as $1 each, or can be combined for a bit more. Consider offering your shoppers ideas for item bundles. This is an easy way to have them consider spending a few extra dollars for multiple items!
Friends Forever — a cookie, a candy assortment, and a custom valentine
Be Mine — a rose, a custom valentine, and a cupcake
Hugs & Kisses — a chocolate-covered strawberry, a rose, and a candy assortment
The gift combinations are plentiful and the opportunity to earn Summit funds while celebrating love awaits!
