Raising Money for the Scouts

I had an idea for a way to raise money for a local boy scout troop. The kids would sell candy to people around the neighborhood and the proceeds would go to the troop. As an incentive to sell even more candy, I created a prize for the kid who sells the most candy. They would in a limousine ride around the city for two hours. I contacted a limousine service in maryland and reserved a limousine for the winner on a specific date.

The kids went around to all of the homes they could find, asking everyone if they would like to buy some candy. Of course there were some people who didn’t want to buy candy, but a lot of people did. There were some people who didn’t want to buy candy, but still wanted to donate to the scouts anyway.

In all, the kids raised over $200,000, which was way more than I expected them to raise. They really put in a lot of hard work tho sell all of the candy. There were many kids who sold a lot of candy, but only one could win the limousine ride, and that kid raised $9,000 from sales. He was excited to find out that he won the limousine ride.

The kid who won the ride didn’t want to have the experience without his fellow scouts, so he came up with an amazing idea. He suggested that the limousine give everyone a ride. All of the scouts would take turns riding in the limousine, and by the time the two hours was over, everyone would have ridden in it. It was a nice gesture of him, and all of the kids were happy to ride in the limousine. In all, everything turned out better than I could have imagined.
