I work at an elementary school in Los Angeles and our school desperately needed new computers.
We were successful in selling scratchcards because we sold them right before Christmas break.
A few of my students stood in front of markets or convenience stores (with permission from the managers).
Most people were in the Christmas spirit and didn’t mind spending a few dollars and we stressed the coupons they would be getting.
We raised $1000 in total and were able to buy two computers for our library with our school discount. It was a fun time and everyone enjoyed them.
