If Andy Thornton had his way, anyone who wanted to support a school or sports team would never have to buy overpriced candy or popcorn again.

His company, which does business as RightResponse Fundraising, packages a variety of first-aid kits, which sell for $15 to $120, and are sold by Boy Scouts and baseball teams across the country. RightResponse boasts a fundraiser average of just under $1,000 and annual revenue for the company of about $1.2 million. After 10 years in the business, however, Thornton said he’s come to accept that first-aid kits might never replace junk food.
