Another Day, Another Dollar

Hello everyone!!! How are you? Hope you are great!!

This past weekend, Gold Glitter Pumps and I sold more banana bread! Though, we learned something new this time around. Make sure you have everything you need to make it before you start making it. We got through mixing most of the stuff, when we realized that we didn’t have baking powder. We had to go to the store and get some before we could continue making banana bread. We eventually finished the loafs and were able to sell them.

We went out into the neighborhood and we were really excited. When we started either people weren’t home or didn’t want any. This went on for the first about 15 houses. Then we came to one house and we asked them if they wanted banana bread. She said that she actually was baking tonight, so no she didn’t need any. We started leaving the house, but then she asked how much they were. We told her the price, and she asked us if they would poison the teenage boys she was sending them with tomorrow. Of course, we said no. Excitedly she went to go get the money to pay for two loafs. As we gave her the two loafs of bread her two kids came down. She gave one loaf to her son to try, and she said she might buy more from us if her son liked them. Her son ended up taking it and eating most of it. Her daughter also came and grabbed one for herself to eat. In the end the mother bought 6 loafs of banana bread! We started going to more houses, and again people weren’t home or weren’t interested. We ended up going home and agreed that Gold Glitter Pump’s mom would take them to work to sell. With lasts weekends sales we have raised over $200! We are so excited that we have been able to raise this much and that the money will go to help those who need it.

Have you ever done anything to raise money for those in need? If so, do tell.

  1. wow! Your IdeaFM project is really cool! How long does it take to bake the cake, how much do you sell it for, and what are you fundraising for? Sorry, if you’ve already said it earlier, but I started reading your blog posts a little late!

    • Oh thank you so much! It takes like 2-3 hours to bake and then we sell 1 loaf for $3 or 2 loaves for $5. We are fundraising for a company called Trekstock (a really good company. You should go look them up) that helps research for cancer and to help young people around the world.
