Put the FUN into Fundraising
Lulu’s big fat magic trick that scores her $2,000 whenever she and her friends go out to raise funds.
It’s part of her Philanthro-Party but deserves its own page, because it’s so important and we want you to wield this for all sorts of other activities than those shown on the Philanthro-Party page.

HERE'S BIG LEARNING
This, dear Gryffindores, Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws, is the BIGGEST TRICK OF ALL to bring this magic into the world BEHIND THE SCENES.
This JOY and ADVENTURE starts already during preparations.
This means that cookie baking isn’t work and lost hours but
cookie baking, smoothie design, crafts etc are hours with friends spent on vision, creative ideas to surprise people, getting surprised oneself as one learns new tricks, breakthroughs (and breakdowns with failed recipes) etc.
is afternoons spent in epic fun
THIS IS WHAT GETS CREWS TOGETHER to MAKE IT POSSIBLE that there are
EPIC BAKE AND LEMONAID SALES AND WATER MARCHES IN TOWN AND SDG SCHOOL FESTS, BACKYARD CARNIVALS, MAGIC SCIENCE CIRCUS FESTS ETC
A SUPER BIG SIDE EFFECT
The FUN in CREATING and INVENTING with FRIENDS is so BIG that the success in inspiring audiences to participate and DONATE plays a MINOR ROLE … which reduces stress, anxiety, frustration
ANOTHER SIDE EFFECT
The SKILL DEVELOPMENT in doing, planning, organizing and documenting, in public speaking and news work has value for one’s personal, idealist and professional paths in life
