We recently ran our first school/organization fundraising campaign for the whole month of November in Buffalo with 11 schools and organizations. We designed a custom shirt for each school (like the one shown here) and made it available along with 8 of our best selling shirts from over the years. We ran it just like we do our regular 2 week campaigns. $8 from every shirt sold went to the school, with sales being handled through the website. Each organization had its own portal page so that we could track the sales for each. It worked kind of like how a school fundraising campaign selling chocolate or popcorn does.
So, we want to do it again in March and do it in all 4 of our cities. We’ll have 4-5 designs available (8 was a bit too much to coordinate) plus the unique one for each school. We’ll take orders for all of March and then print and ship out the orders... and then give the money raised to each school.
We’re looking for anyone that either works at a school they think might be interested, or has a school contact that we can reach out to to provide them with information. So if that’s you, email us at email@example.com and let us know!
This time around, we’re considering keeping track of sale referrals for each student and giving prizes to those that sell the most... and to the top-performing school.
This is a great opportunity for your school (or little league team, or church, or whatever) to raise some money -- all while hopefully introducing new folks to 26 Shirts and the give back model we've put together to help people in need. Win/win!
