Chelsea Occasional Care ran their first Living Fundraisers drive this year and can’t wait to run their next!
They decided to test the waters by ordering 10 carry bags of the Greeting Cards. Coordinator, Nicole set up a display so people could buy by the box at their leisure however a few mums took whole bags to sell at their workplaces. The fundraiser was advertised in their newsletter and emails to the parents.
Their 10 carry bags sold out within two weeks with a number of boxes on back order, so Nicole put in a top up order of another 10 carry bags. The plan is to always have a few cards in stock so parents can purchase them as needed, so yet another top up order is looking likely! “Everyone needs cards and at $1 per card, they are great value.”
“What an easy fundraiser and one we’ll continue with. The staff at living fundraiser made ordering so easy, they were friendly and very helpful!” said Nicole.
The funds raised will go towards educational play sets for the centre. They plan on sticking with the cards but are also looking into the Closet Cleanout program.
