We decided that instead of passing out message squares to homerooms, like we did in 2010, we would setup a table at lunch and have a pile of message squares ready and available so kids could fill out as many as they wanted. This allowed us to better keep track of the message squares and the overall candygram fundraiser.
To inspire kids to start filling out the message squares at lunch, we passed out sample message squares to homerooms with cute, personalized messages on them. Again, we held the fundraiser for one week and sold the candygrams for one dollar. I was very fortunate that my mom and dad were willing to donate the candy and the supplies this year! Otherwise, we would have had to build out a budget for the fundraiser. Overall, the 2012 Bay View Academy Candy Gram fundraiser was a great success and a lot of fun. Candy grams have to be my favorite fundraising method of all time!
