Before starting your campaign get organized by:

NOW THAT YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY REMEMBER ...

Which ever avenue you choose, it has to be impressive !!! 
Let your contributor feel that you want not only his/her money but you also
respect them ---  be as creative as you can.

If you have decided to make your own chocolate, make an event out of that.
Let parents, students & teachers get together & make it into a party.
Don't be afraid to charge for that event but don't forger to let everyone
take home at least 1 hand-made chocolate card,
they will love to brag about their handiwork!

HOW TO USE THE CHOCOLATE
GREETING CARDS & GUIDE DOGS
