Candles

I know we throw any ideas out for fundraising..I received this today from Yankee Candle....as I just LOVE them....probably a great way to raise money...most women love candles. They do fall and spring fundraisers - it is done through GBI Marketing. Perhaps we can do a fall fundraiser ~ perfect for holiday time.

This is *just* the sort of thing the fundraising committee is going to be looking at. Thanks for the great suggestion. I love Yankee Candle and would love to stock up on some pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving [:)]

I should admit that I need AA for Yankee Candle........! Thankfully, I have a dh who loves it too..well, most of the scents. I know I could sell a good amount.

I too love these candles and could sell a decent amount-if given the product early enough before all of my early bird friends go and buy theirs! Fabulous idea!!
