November was a busy month. The KWBS A-Team for Wildlife club held its first bake sale and make over $400 from one day (recess and lunch period only). Proceeds were equally split between A-Team for Wildlife and AfriOceans Conservation Alliance in South Africa.
The club had help from moms, dads, sisters, and brothers to prepare the nut-free baked goods. We also included gluten-free and egg-free options. Popcorn sold out quickly as well as the Jolly Ranger lollypops. There were so many different sugar cookies as well as reindeer cupcakes. Yum-Yum!
Although it is a lot of work to prepare for a bake sale, kids love the treats and the proceeds go to worthy causes. I'm so grateful to my mom for all of her help baking and supervising the event. She comes out to our club meetings, which are held every two weeks during the morning recess. Everyone in the club helped out and together we made the bake sale the best one yet!
With a little planning and help from friends and family, you can easily make a bake sale happen at your school, community centre or neighbourhood. Please connect with me if you have questions -- although I'm young, I've held many bake sales already and have lots of tips to share.
