The School Fundraising Guidebook provided by Big Fundraising Ideas is a life saver. As a full-time school district employee with many hats to wear, this guide’s efficiency helps our fundraising run on its own. The guide includes everything needed for a successful fundraiser. I enjoy the convenience of pulling out pre-made forms; making copies and sending them home with the students. It is an easy to follow, self explanatory manual that makes fundraising the successful task I didn’t mind taking on. This guide takes you that extra mile to meet your organizations needs, with little effort by following the time-line and instructions included. Many thanks to those who created this time saving guide which helps us achieve our goals.
Color Xploder Lollipop Ordering Guide
How to order Color Xploder lollipops
Interested in selling Color Xploder lollipops but not sure how many to order? Our Color Xploder lollipop ordering guide will help you decide how many cases you should order based on the size of your group.
We’ll also help you calculate your approximate take-home profit once you’ve decided how many lollipops you want each student to sell. In addition, groups receive price breaks depending on how much is ordered.
Each case contains 640 lollipops broken down into 16 bags of 40. We recommend giving 1-2 individual bags to each student to sell.
You’ll want to know how many cases to order, so first, multiple the number of students in your group by the number of bags per seller. Then, divide the total bags by 16.
For instance, let’s say that a sponsor with 72 students wants each student to sell 2 bags:
72 students x 2 bags / student = 144 bags
144 bags ÷ 16 = 9 cases
Once the group sells their 9 cases, they will make a total of $1,497.60 since each lollipop sells for 50¢ making 52% profit (See our Color Xploder pricing & profit table). Here’s the math:
9 cases x 640 lollipops / case = 5,760 lollipops
5,760 lollipops x 50¢ / lollipop = $2,880.00 gross sales
$2,880.00 x 52% profit = $1,497.60 profit
Use our chart below to help you approximate the amount of money you can raise based on the size of your group and how many lollipops each student needs to sell:
