Well, here is what we're going with. She is going to work with an after school program. She can teach them how to make cup cakes, At this point I think she can teach them anything. They could make candy, do crafts, learn games, learn about healthy eating, etc. Now to get the paperwork done before the 15th when they meet next. What I do like about this lady is if she denies you, she gives you ideas to help you out. The other lady we just got a big fat no.

Yes, we have a proposal form to fill out. Right now they're saying no to it, so we want to get better ideas how to keep the idea alive. That's why we did the outline to explain it more. I'll send you my email. Emily is going to talk to her tomorrow hopefully. I can't be there when she does it, darn it. If she thinks it's ok then we'll fill out the proposal.

Does you council have a format to submit the proposal in? They should because there is a national form to use.

I could also send you the graph that I personally use to make sure the different expectations are covered in the proposal.

Message me your email and I can send you my review form.

This is kind of an outline so far:

I like to make cupcakes
I've made cupcakes for:
Duck's Unlimited Banquet
A School book club
Graduations
Family gatherings
Made Cookies for the WDM Human Resources Christmas party
I would like to make cupcakes for other organizations to use for fundraising or to use as desserts at their events
Ideas:
A bake sale for PTO, Girl Scouts, 4H, Churches, Daycares, etc
Cupcakes to the Ronald McDonald house for desserts
Cupcakes for desserts at a Senior Citizen dinner
Fundraisers for individuals, such as my neighbor with cancer
I would create a website to promote and market it
I would create a list of organizations and promote "Cupcakes for a Cause"
I would create coupons, for when a coupon is more realistic than a real cupcake
I would do fundraing to get supplies.
Food product
Cupcake liners
Cupcake Boxes
And more
My mom belongs to a women's group that will take over "Cupcakes for a Cause" when I go to college
They would also help promote "Cupcakes for a Cause"
They would help with fundraising and getting supplies
They would help with delivery of cupcakes

Thoughts?

I like that she has a group that would be willing to continue it for the sustainability piece.

What about doing some classes or events to get others involved in the project.

Perhaps a website to promote interest / market it to gather groups that need the donations? A way to organize volunteers and places to donate to so that who,ever takes it over can really be managing it and not just need to make the cupcakes.

I think having a reoccurring list like the party for underprivileged children will be very heful rather than just a random donation list. Also, connecting with people in the community that put on fundraisers. I know in my town there is one woman that everyone at least talkes to when planning a fundraiser who ends up either directly involved or at least sharing planning tips. Get a list of those people so that the cupcakes are always on that contact list for fundraising planning.

Have a plan for coupons for cupcakes. Some fundraiser will want the actual cupcakes, some might want to auction coupons off as an event portu it's ( for. Mom who wants the, for her kid's birthday at a future date for example).

If you want to send me her proposal, I might get some more ideas from reading it. I'll inbox you my email.

This is a really unusual idea. I love it when girls come up with s etching different, but it being different adds to the questions abut the project since there is unfamiliarity.

I am not sure 6 days is very long for a turn around. I know we really try to get back to our girls as soon as possible and sometimes it takes a couple of weeks. We have discussion behind the scenes and then one of us (or council) meets with the girl for the follow up details.

Here we go again. My daughter emailed the council six days ago and still no response. So while we waited I thought we would reach out to you for ideas.

She asked if she could do "Cupcakes for a Cause."

Making cupcakes to donate to different organizations. She could make cupcakes for the Ronald McDonald house, cupcakes for fundraiser events such as Duck's Unlimited banquets, PTO fundraisers, Girl Scout & 4H bake sales. She could donate cupcakes to personal fundraiser causes such as our neigbor who has cancer. Our city does a Christmas party for underpriviledged kids. It could go on forever. She has a group of women who would be glad to continue Cupcakes for a Cause.

Ideas, thoughts, how to make it sound better?

Thanks
