I am a teacher and am planning on doing this activity with my students to raise money for a project. I will make several dozen coupons that I plan on selling for $1.00 each. The coupons will reflect things my students would enjoy, such as receiving homemade goodies, stickers, throwing me into the school’s pool, pulling something out of my goodie jar, etc. (There should be a line on each coupon for you to sign and date when the student wants to redeem the coupon.)
My students look forward to throwing teachers into the pool, so I will create only 5 of these coupons, and the other 95 will contain other goodies. Disclaimer: I plan on saving one of these pool coupons for the final 3 coupons to be purchased because the students will be focused on buying this specific kind of coupon. This ensures the students will continue to buy the coupons, which will continue to raise money for my project! Bonus points for creating personalized coupons, such as, “This coupon is good for one super-silly photo with the teacher!”Source: Mandy R, SPHI-Sentul
