This is a simple fundraiser that is easy to do and works with all age groups. Select a day that students, teachers, and staff can wear their craziest hat to school. Each person pays a fee and gets their hand stamped so that the teachers know that they’d paid. Winners are selected according to originality, creativity, and the hat that was most favored by students and teachers. You can have a panel of judges or let everyone vote. Regardless, it’s lots of fun! You can do the same with hair, shoes, etc.
