The Bakeless Bake Sale Fundraising Poem
Many is the time I heard you say
I would rather give a “Dollar” than bake today
And so, we are asking you to help more or less
To make our Bakeless Bake Sale a big success.
Just send us the money that it would take
To Bake a loaf of bread or a beautiful cake
Or send in the amount of money it takes to buy
A dozen rolls or maybe a pie
We know you can help us if you will but try.
I am buying or baking the items marked below.

Another Bakeless Bake Sale Fundraising Poem
A bit of news we have today…
A BAKELESS BAKE SALE is on the way.
In these busy days, who wants to bake,
A pie or cookies or even a cake.
You’d be surprised if you counted the cost,
of ingredients, heat, and the time you’ve lost.
Baking for sales is extra work.
Yet nobody really wants to shirk.
So we’ve thought of a plan that’s really grand,
and feel quite sure you’ll understand.
In an envelope, if you like, please include the price…
of a pie or cake or anything nice.
Without fuss or bother, you’ve done your part.
We hope you’ll give with a willing heart.
Wishing success for our BAKELESS BAKE SALE,
This is the end of our little tale.

Ashton Ladies Aid is having a Bakeless Bake sale fundraising event through the month of May. All ladies are asked to contribute the amount they would have spent on ingredients, plus an amount for their time and skill. You don’t need to burn your fingers or dirty a mixing bowl. And everyone is asked to contribute what you would have spent for a couple of pies, a loaf of bread, and a plate of cookies. There are no calories in it. And it will help the Ladies Aid in all the good work done by this organization. Bring gifts to the church, or mail to xxxxxxxxx.

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.
