Our Pathfinder Club tried this. I got the idea from another Club. We bought M&M's in round plastic containers, they cost about 56 cents. We used an address label with this message on the outside: Save quarters for our Little Lamb, Adventurer and Pathfinder Clubs. Our Children are Special! Each container, after they eat the M&M's, will hold $14 worth of quarters. To-date we have raised $704. It has worked well with us.

We did this for a Sabbath School mission project and had great results. We are a small church so we didn't make that much, but it worked well.

I have never heard that one before! our club has been blessed to be backed fairly well by our church, but I feel that we need to start fund raising again!

I like fundraising. I haven't heard that one either! It sounds cool, though.

We've done this in our club too. We bought the M&M mini's at Sams club for $13 a box. I think the box comes with 24 little canisters of M&M's. We gave them out at church a few times and I think we've made about $900. The great thing about this fundraiser is that if only one person gives you back a tube full of quarter's you will have still made your money back.
