The team that assembles to organize the school's fundraiser is very important to the school, and it represents a group of people whose main focus as a whole is to make the educational environment better for the kids. The fundraiser, therefore, is a way to ensure that the school gets everything it needs and that the kids in turn have the best possible learning situation. If the members of the school's fundraiser team understand just how important their work is, it can help build enthusiasm for the project, and solidarity among the people participating.
Enthusiasm can be contagious, so more often than not excitement about the school's fundraiser gets passed on to the kids, who can learn a valuable lesson about how money is used to buy the things they need, and how teamwork can be an important factor in making the school's fundraiser a success. Use this momentum to build on, and before you know it, you will be watching your school's fundraiser transform from a mere money-making exercise, into a mammoth team effort that brings people together and teaches many lifelong lessons in the process.
