Selling the Pins:
Of course, you may sell these however
you wish, however, we suggest that you
sell them for $5.00 each, if your
community can afford this price.
Where do you sell? We give each person
(who wants to sell) a set number to
sell. When they return with the money
for those pins/magnets, we give them
more if they wish to sell more.
Set up a table outside a store or
church and entice the patrons to
contribute. Send them to work with
parents of your class/group members.
