When I was 16 my baseball team needed uniforms because we couldn’t find a sponsor in time for the season to start. We decided to sell chocolate bars to try and raise the money. That was going okay, but very slow because we didn’t know many people.

We decided to “sell our bodies” if you will. A couple of us guys decided we were going to have us an old fashioned “chocolate car wash”. You pay $2.00 for a washing and a chocolate bar while you wait.

Me and my friend stood on the street with our shirts off and a big sign that said Chocolate Car Wash! Half of the people just came by to see what in the world we were doing. Most of those people stayed and got the car wash and the chocolate bar. This tactic got us our jerseys and then some. It was a very fond memory I have of fundraising.
