My son is trying to raise funds to attend a Student Ambassador trip to Japan next Summer. Does anyone have some good fundraising ideas we could use? There is no way we can afford to send him otherwise. Our biggest problem is we are fairly rural, the whole county is only about 20,000 people and it's not a wealthy county. Here's what he has so far: Asking family for $ for Xmas and Birthday Selling scented pencils Selling all unwanted/outgrown stuff on ebay Not much of a start I know.
