Jolly Soles is a family run business selling boxes of socks in adult's and children's sizes to schools, sporting clubs and community groups. Jolly Soles started because children were constantly bringing home sugar filled products as fundraising tools. We thought there's got to be a better way go to: www.jollysoles.com.au if you'd like some further information.

At our primary school we have used DJ Slexie for our school discos and have raised over $1,000 profit each time!
We also love Lexie's Life Scents fundraiser which is electronic warmers and fragrances, really nice products in many fragrances and they do an ANZAC memorial warmer. Plus love DoTerra essential oils for everyday house and body uses.
Can't forget Billy G's Cookie Dough around winter, always a big hit!
Raffles with donated items and theme dress days.

We were looking for a different fundraising option and found St John offered a First Aid Kit Fundraiser. It is a great deal for the club, getting 25% of total profits and we got a free workplace first aid kit for raising over $7,000!

For schools in the Perth area, Cash4Clothing pays per kg to hold a clothing drive and they even provide the flyer design and pick the bags of clothes up from the school for you. A great no effort way to raise serious $$$ by having the kids just clear out the family wardrobes. A great way to encourage inter-house competition as well.
