What we did to make our magazine fundraiser successful was the prizes we offered the students. They all worked extra hard for the prizes, and we ended up making over $5000.
We gave out 4 Wii’s for $500 sales and 3 iPod touches for students who sold over $800 worth of magazine subscriptions.
They would go online and set up a “store” and send e-mails to everyone they knew who had a magazine subscription. How these kids managed to do this I do not know, their parents probably helped them somehow, but that is good that they want to be involved with the school’s fundraiser.
