I was fundraising for our school, in Australia and we had a compassion project for people living in Indonesia, with all that had been happening over there. So, we decided to get sponsors from Cadbury, and we got a 10kg chocolate block, and made a raffle for it.
We ended up needing to get the teachers to go to the shops to buy more raffle tickets because we were bombarded by people buying raffle tickets. It was a success, with each raffle ticket costing $5.00, and it, obviously going to a good cause, we made over $2,000; and we didn’t even need to buy the chocolate, just the tickets and a couple of huge money boxes.
Looking at the profits, it looks like nearly all the school bought a ticket each.
