This will be old news to some who have caught things on social media but if you are sane and avoid these things let me introduce you to Fairy Friday.......On Friday 28th February, Fairy Bricks is inviting you to take part in Fairy Friday by organising a fundraising cake sale (with an added twist! More on that further down)How do I organise a Fairy Friday cake sale?
Here are some tips:
Put posters up at your school, workplace, community centre, play group, etc. Maybe stay-at-home parents can get together for a extra-special coffee morning,
Tell your friends and co-workers the date and ask them to contribute by baking something for Fairy Friday. Remind them nearer the day too.
‘Cake’ can be interpreted very loosely! Cakes, biscuits, muffins, traybakes, savoury – all contribution will be greatly appreciated (and scoffed)!
You don’t have to make anything on the theme of Fairy Bricks, but if you do that would be extra-cool.
Make sure you have a large enough area to display all the cake and for people to come and survey the goods!
Rather than pricing everything individually and having to mess about with change, leave an honesty box for people to make their donations – maybe mark that the suggested donation is £1 per item, for example.
It’s helpful to provide some paper plates and napkins – and when people take a plate, they generally want to fill it! Meaning more money raised.The added twist!
The extra dimension to this cake sale is that we’d also encourage you to hold a little LEGO building competition (can’t ignore the ‘bricks’ part of Fairy Bricks!).
Please ask people to bring in any of their own LEGO creations (or those of their children) on the day. You can upload pictures to the Fairy Bricks website and the best (as judged by the Fairy Bricks Team) will win a small prize (LEGO of course!).
The model doesn't have to be huge or amazingly intricate; it can be anything you like, there is no theme, and no limits except your imagination!
This is completely optional; you don’t have to do the building competition as well.
If you have any questions about Fairy Friday, please get in touch with us via our Facebook page. Please let us know if you’re planning on taking part and don’t think you wont be able to raise enough money. Every penny will make a difference.
Hopefully, on Fairy Friday we can have some fun and, more importantly, together raise lots of money to put a smile on the faces of sick children.
Obviously not something that will appeal to everyone but even if it's not you, it could be right for others you know to organise so please share this link http://fairybricks.org/?p=818
Huge thanks to @LostInTranslation
who has been the expert cake consultant in pulling this all together. My knowledge is limited to eating it as evidenced in the shorts splitting incident last week.
