From Ohio -Duct Tape Fundraiser Idea

How do you get kids excited about raising money for cancer?

First, tell them to collect loose change from friends and family. Next, tell them they will get to duct tape their school principal to the wall. Thus Pennies for Patients was born!

How did these students do with their school cancer fundraiser?

These kids raised over $2,000 and giggled every moment of the event! Every child that made a donation got to stick a piece of duct tape on Principal Michelle Balderson. The principal and school secretary were good sports and were glad to help.
