School principal picks as many teachers as he/she feels will willingly participate – no party poopers! The principal also has to play (to be fair of course). The principal then selects an “appropriate” activity that each teacher has to do such as: kiss a pig, color hair a wild color, dress outrageously, roller skate, etc. Be creative! Have fun! The teachers vote on what the principal has to do. Get a large jar for each teacher and the principal. Write the name of the each teacher and the principal and their “assigned activity” on their individual jars. Put the jars where someone can keep an eye over them – preferably in a high traffic area. Students, teachers, parents, and other school employees “vote” by depositing money into the jar(s). At the end of the fundraising event, the three (five, etc) teachers who have the most money in their jars, have to do their assigned activity. Have the “winners” perform their activity at a pep rally or other regular assembly, or hold a special assembly just for the fundraiser.

We have included a number of do-it-yourself fundraising ideas in this section that offer a break from traditional product sales. They were developed by groups just like yours in an attempt have a little fun with their fundraiser. Some of them are tried and true while others show a lot of creativity … and even wackiness in some cases. All of them are obviously not appropriate for every group, but sometimes, with only a little modification, your might find some fund raising ideas that are perfect for your group. If you have an idea for a do-it-yourself fund raiser you are willing to share with others, please send it to us via email. Include anything and everything you would want to know if you were hearing the idea for the first time.
