What we do to raise some money

Recommended Posts

Our troop (duh!) sells popcorn, but we also sometimes sell Trash Bags... :p silly I know, but it can be popular especially with relatives. But you might end up making money off your parents... xD

We still don't have a winner on the goat raffle.  :)

I dunno @stosh. I trash bag in hand cleans more than a goat in a raffle. :p

When I was a youth (60s-70s) I remember selling light bulbs...4-pack for a buck.  Our Explorer Post set up a Christmas tree lot every December...we had a blast every evening with a fire barrel and hot chocolate.  I imagine it was a lot of work for the leaders, though.  More recently, my troop sold Christmas wreaths (mail order) with good success.  Lots of repeat customers and my relatives in PA loved them.

I don't think so.  :)  the secret to a goat raffle is (drum roll!) When you buy a ticket for the raffle, don't put YOUR name on the stub that is drawn.  There's gotta be someone else out there that would totally appreciate getting a goat.  We did this in a small town, at the big fireman's day event we raffled it off and the "winner", if they didn't want the goat paid $25 to us to raffle it off again.  The mayor won a half dozen times, the police chief a few times, clergy got it and finally there was a scream of joy from the back, two little girls won the goat!  Needless to say we raised about $15,000 for the ambulance service in town.
