3 different ways to use lolly bags in your fundraising event

Charity work and giving back to the community is very important to us. In fact, last year we raised over $40,000 for various charities, and helped many different groups with their fundraising efforts.

Schools, sports teams, community groups, businesses… you name it, and our lolly bags have been there, helping them raise funds for all manner of good causes.

The most common way to use lollies for fundraising is to sell small lolly bags for a couple of bucks. Just think back to when you were in primary school, when you would walk around with boxes full of lollies for sale.

It’s a technique that’ll get the job done – however, it’s also a technique that’s been done a million times before!

Luckily for you, that isn’t the only way you can use lolly bags to raise money.

Need lolly bag ideas? Today, we’ll be spotlighting some of the more creative approaches and ideas we’ve seen when it comes to using lollies for fundraising…

1) Go custom with your lolly bags

Okay, so you want something a bit more exciting than your standard lolly bag sale. So, how do you stand out from the crowd and ensure your fundraising event gets the most attention?

If you ask us, the answer lies in variety.

Everyone has a different favourite lolly. It might be Allen’s Killer Pythons, it might be jubes or it might be rock candy.

That’s why it’s so important to include variety in your lolly bags. That way, you will tempt the taste buds of everyone!

To make things easier for you, our mini lolly bags are completely customisable. That means that you can choose exactly what you want in your bags!

Instead of choosing our party mix, you can build your very own custom lolly bags.

This way you can stand out from the crowd by offering greater variety, and even a few special goodies that they won’t find anywhere else!

2) Use lolly bags in your raffle

This is an excellent idea that we see a lot of people implementing in their fundraisers. 

The best thing about them is that there are so many ways to use lolly bags in your raffle:

  • You could offer a raffle ticket with every lolly bag you sell
  • Or if you’re setting up a table somewhere to sell raffle tickets, you could have a lucky dip for the kids (filled with lolly bags of course!)

There options truly are endless and you can get really creative with how you decide to use lollies in your fundraiser. 

There really are no limits to what you can do because let’s face it – everyone likes lollies! Pair the sale of a lolly bag with a fundraising initiative, and you’ve got a sure hit.

3) Turn your lollies it into a competition!

There are so many ways that you can incorporate lolly bags (or bulk lollies) into your raffle – some of which don’t even include bags!

If you’re feeling a bit more creative, you could turn your lollies into a competition.

What you’ll want to do is buy bulk lollies, and put them all into a large lolly jar. For a gold coin fee, your colleagues will be able to enter a competition where they’ll have to guess exactly how much the jar weighs just by looking at it.

The person who guesses the right amount of lollies gets to take the lolly jar home!
