    Fundraising Idea

    Hello everyone,hope you are all enjoying your summer.My local Explorer Post is somewhat new,and we are looking to raise money which will allow us to purchase uniforms and other sorts of equipment.

    I recently came across a page of a business online that specializes custom police car models(First Response Replicas).On their website I saw that they help promote Explorer Posts by making your department's car,and you turn around and sell them to make a profit.Do you think this would be a good fundraising idea?I know I for one think that this may be a good option and potential to make some money,as I really enjoy collecting police car models.

    I would just like to hear input from the fellow Explorers on here.Thanks!

    Will your sponsoring dept allow you to do this ?

    Check and make sure before you get too far on any fund raising project. Ultimately , you are using their name and I am sure they want to have control on how the dept. name is used.

    Well I spoke with the guy that runs this business,and it sounds like we'd be spending more money than we would be bringing in.So scratch that idea..

    What about doing a mudd run? A lot of people do these for charities...fitness freaks love them and lots of people support LE..you have to pay a certain cost to register your team . Other departments could participate too plus it's a great way to show off your endurance.. Just throwing it out there my idea ;) also whatever money is not used for the explorer program can be used for the officer down memorial ... Or even if you did a running marathon
