1. Let the Cupcake Kids know when and where you are having a sale by registering your sale.
2. Spread the word through facebook, blogs, emails, and good ol’ fashioned word of mouth.
3. Utilize your personal Cupcake Kids webpage reminding people when and where your Cupcake Kids sale will be. It’s also a great way to raise pledges before your sale – email your personal webpage link to family and friends, post your link on Facebook and blogs. Tweet about it. People love to make online donations, so make the most of your personal CCK site!

4. Make some cupcakes (or other goodies) and some lemonade (or other drinks). Here are some super cute and pretty easy ideas for cupcakes. But don’t think you cupcakes have to be professionally decorated. Letting the kids have a hay-day with the decorations is super fun, too!
5. Choose a safe location (there will be lots of kids running around!) that is well-traveled. Folks have had sales in their front yard, in front of their local grocery store, at their parent’s office, at neighborhood garage sales, at their local farmer’s market, at their church, at their schools….think anywhere there are people!
6. Set up a table, make some posters, print an informational flier about SixtyFeet for your table. Heck, why don’t you head over to our toolkit page and download all sorts of material to share with friends, co-workers and neighbors. Don’t forget to shout at the top of your lungs, “Cupcakes for Africa!”
7. We have found in the past it’s better if you don’t put a set price on the goods for sale. We like to engage people in conversation and explain to them about SixtyFeet and the children in Uganda. And we’ve been known to sell cupcakes for $200!
8. Take lots of pictures and post them to our Cupcake Kids Facebook page.
9. When all your money is collected, email The Cupcake Kids the total and send a check to (please do not send cash):
