Hi All

I thought I would ask for help on this...

I need to get some decent looking donation tin's / boxes together for local shops.

Anyone have any thoughts?

This is for Holy Cross school. I have one place confirmed and a list of 20 to ask. I was hoping to have something before I start approaching people.

Make 'em - small cardboard boxes, Pringles cans, that kinda stuff ! Shoot some digi picas of the kids, have 20 sets printed and collage them on the outside! Collaged around some text explaining what it;s all about. Let the kids help make them! get them involved.

From experience - make them out of wood, tamperproof (can't turn 'em and empty them like a piggy bank) with a lock on.

Hi Tacogirl:

Those donation tins are more effective when you can see the contents. Always seed the container with a bit of small change to get the ball rolling.

I'll be down mid-November, and will look for something I can bring with me then.

Good Idea Klcman, I was also considering the white plastic take out containers they are a decent size. I have lots of pics of school and kids so can get a collage going fairly easily.

Thanks CaptJeff I will touch base if I do not please feel free to contact me. We may be in canada then but I was hoping to get the ball rolling on this asap.

Great Beth. Please keep me posted.

The one person who agreed to have one already is going to use a coffee can for now.

Anyone one recycle lol and have containers?

Thanks for all the input so quick. I love this board.

Here are 2 I found when google searching for ideas. In a perfect world I would snap my fingers and get a bunch of them lol
