    I have a host who was going to do a cooking show but now wants to do a fundraiser because her son is trying to earn money for camp. I know and individual can't get a check. I told her it has to go to the church or the camp, not sure at all how it works. I don't want to do fundraisers in general, I do not think they are really worth it. I want to keep it simple. Do I just do it as show and take the orders and just be sure they know that it is a fundraiser? The mom is inviting at least 60 people. There are 2 other kids who are also trying to earn $ as well. Has anyone ever done something like this? I really don't know what I am doing, but I need the opportunity for show leads and recruit leads.

    I also need to come up with a recipe for something easy, inexpensive and possibly without a microwave.

    I'm sure the mom/host will let people know it is a fundraiser, but it wouldn't hurt at the begining of the show to mention 10-15% (depending on sales level) of the sales will go to help _________ go to camp.

    I understand your reluctance to do a fundraiser since you commission drops to 15%. However, people tend to buy more knowing that some of the sales are going to a good cause. So it may average out.

    Did you ever figure out who to make the check to?

    I just wanted to get my two cents in..I did a fundraiser for Susan G. Komen (they didn't want to do HWC) and it was an easy book show with sales at $900! I might get two+ parties out of it as well so I think it is worth it. I know some true FR are more difficult but I didn't want everyone to be too scared of a FR.

    You can always do the fundraiser and put it in the name of the camp he is going to -- then have the order and check sent to you (Happy Camp, c/o Suzy Consultant), that way you can give the check to the individual and they can present it as part of their payment. I've done FRs for a local nursery school and had the product come to me to sort for them, then handed them the check.

    Good luck. It is great PR.

  7. I have that same question. A student in my nephew's class passed away a couple of weeks ago at 14 years old. The family is having a hard time and someone wanted to do a PC Fundraiser for the family. Is this possible? I mean, the check would go to the family, not an organization. How does that work?

    Thanks ahead of time for any insight,
    ~Kel
