Summary of project We had a fun table about safe sex and STD/AIDS prevention, selling "Hot Lovin Kits" with condoms, lube, candies, candles. We also sold "Condom Leis," necklaces made from condoms, which sold out! We wore lab-coats and stethoscopes and dressed sexy, and played sexy music to attract attention. The event was a success and we made many valuable campus contacts through it.

Lessons/suggestions This wasn't the best fundraiser in the world, since people didn't want to pay for condoms they could get for free, but the message definately got out there. Have something else to sell if you really want to rake in the cash.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
Comments Maybe next year we'll be able to get more buzz going on the sale, and we'll get better donations/funds raised.
