Hot chocolate fundraisers are a great idea for students in school to get involved and help CARI to fundraise. They can be cheaply, easily and quickly put together and done. Hot chocolate fundraisers involve very little preparation and clean up after. Coming into the colder months hot chocolate is a very popular idea to keep students warm and give them a pick up during the long days at school.
How To Do
Students need to find a designated area in the school that they can set up the stand or booth. This area needs to be accessible by students and in a place that they will be noticed.
A limited amount of equipment is needed for the hot chocolate. Cups that are suitable for warm drinks are necessary to avoid any accidents. A large amount of hot chocolate mix is the main ingredient for this to be a success. Additional ingredients like mini marshmallows or cream will be appreciated by the customers however they are not essential.
Setting up near a kitchen in the school would be the most suitable for this project. A hot water boiler would assist in making the large amount of hot chocolate. Access to the kitchen will allow for a constant topping up of water.
A thermos will also keep any hot chocolate made hot until it is required by a customer.
