We talked to local schools about helping with fundraising for the PTA! This year we have a fantastic Fundraising Kit that we designed.
With no cost to the school or organization we provide three shirts (as seen on the white rack here), an order form, copies, and the stand. We bring the kit to the school, set it up, and bring the materials. We also set up an online store for the school so that parents can pay with debit/credit cards. The shirts range from $10-$20 and the fundraising organization gets a set dollar amount back per shirt. There is no extra inventory for the school or PTA to keep on hand and no guessing about what might sell. As an awesome bonus, we use Hanes brand t-shirts and Hanes provides a Box Top for every shirt sold! It’s like two fundraisers in one!!
In an effort to increase sales and visibility in our community we decided to take out an ad in the event guide at the Mega Scout Expo for the Las Area Council Boy Scouts. The Expo event occurs every year and every troop, pack, and venturing crew is invited for this two day extravaganza. We figured this is a perfect spot to advertise. The event guide is given out to everyone that attends and it comes with a free booth. We asked our designers to come up with an ad to be placed in the guide. You can see what she came up with below. If all goes well we will have talked to a lot of people that are interested in shirts for their unit and hopefully come out with some new orders. We will be promoting our normal business with The T-Shirt Guy as well as our girly blinged out shirts for the moms with The T-Shirt Girl. We are even going to roll out our promotional items and see if anyone needs customized key chains, cups, pens, and more!
