Patriotic gift baskets at this time of year make popular raffle ticket prizes.  Be sure to use  all the red, white, and blue and fill the basket with sparklers, flags, and other patriotic prizes.  The American Legion Emblem Sales online catalog has many prize ideas such as flags of all sizes, hats, shirts, and other great gifts.

American Flag Sales

Help your community show their pride with their own American Flags.  Why not pre-sell tickets for a flag, then order the amount you need and have a “flag distribution day” event.  Distribute them from a local park or Legion or VFW post. Have balloons and popcorn or hot dogs for sale to celebrate your patriotism.  There are also small items you can sell on flag distribution day such as flag decals, stickers, and mini flags.

Invite the local school marching band to play patriotic music during the event; and offer the local scouts and local veterans to attend to help with distribution.

Uncle Sam Wants YOU! .. to have fun and raise funds for worthy veterans causes.
