For anyone who has participated in Relay for Life you know that selling items is the best way to raise money. Other than havign a bake sale, does anyone have good ideas about simple, inexpensive, crafty things I could make with my team to sell before realy or at the event? It does not have to be related to cancer and our theme this year is tropicl islands. Thank you in advance for any ideas!

My Relay for Life team made ribbon pins and gave them away "for a donation".  They looked up colors representing different cancers (pink for breast cancer, yellow for...prostate, I think?, whatever color represents leukemia...red?) and had them available for donation.  They used straight pins, but I'd suggest springing for safety pins!  They accepted donations instead of charging, because you can get a lot more money that  way, and they didn't have to do the fundraiser paperwork for the school (they did it on campus). 

It really raised awareness for Relay, and brought in quite a bit of money.

I'm sorry I don't have more information, like the website of colors or how much money they've brought in, but I'm just the advisor.  They're the ones who do all the work!  They're awesome, and I know nothing...   Smiley
