Here's a fundraising idea that's unusual, and profitable: a "car wash-a-thon." Following is a letter from Sister Bernadette Ann, the Principal of St. Cecilia School in Beaverton, Oregon.This letter describes an idea you might want to try.

I would like to submit an idea for a fundraiser. It is a "car wash-a-thon."

The idea is to get people to pledge so much for every car washed. Then, set up a washing station and wash cars free! (The hardest part is to convince people that the car wash is free.)

A time limit has to be set for the car wash--something like two or three hours. It is quite profitable, but pledges have to be collected later.
