Cookie Dough Fundraiser
Everyone loves cookies, especially children, so what is easier than promoting a
cookie dough fundraiser to parents? Encourage them to keep some cookie dough in their freezer, with
another tub in the refrigerator so that their family members can make their fresh cookies whenever they want.
Mmmmmm, the smell of freshly cooked cookies is so appealing!
For many families who have such hectic schedules, freshly baked goods at home
are not often an option, but with frozen cookie dough, it becomes far more realistic, and it's much easier to
clean up from than when baking from scratch. The cookie dough is available in many flavours too, so you
have a good choice.

fundraiser for is to raise funds, but if you look closely that may not be the only reason. You may
be trying to get your group noticed in the neighbourhood, in which case, maybe a car wash would
serve your needs better. Or may be you are triyng to teach the value of money to children, and is
it better to use the cookie dough fundraiser for that, as cookies are loved by all children, well
adults too! ~Site Editor
