Fundraising for a Cause-Amazing Giveaway!


Fundraising for a Cause is such a wonderful site! Pretty much ANY cause that you could be wanting to raise awareness for has it's own list of wholesale items on their site.


ABOUT THEM:

Fundraising For A Cause, Inc. was started with one goal of helping people raise money for different causes.  After my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and I signed up to do the Susan G Komen 3 day walk. I saw how many people struggled to raise the $2,300 needed to walk.  Here were all these wonderful people willing to walk 60 miles but would drop out because they couldn’t raise their money.
I thought if we could help just 10 people in the 12 cities the Susan G Komen does their walk in raise their money that would be over $300,000 for breast cancer research.
So I left corporate America and started Fundraising For A Cause with a goal of developing fundraising merchandise at wholesale prices so people can raise money for various causes.  We launched with breast cancer merchandise and have since added other cause merchandise at the request of so many organizations.   Everyone struggles to raise money and when you see how easy it is to sell our merchandise you will be amazed at the money you can raise.
One of the best quotes I ever read is,” I kept waiting for someone to make a difference and then I realized I was that someone”.
Be that someone and make a difference!  One person can truly make a difference!


The amazing thing about our products is the high quality for the low cost.  We have organizations like the Susan G Komen and Alzheimer's Association buy them to raise money for their organizations.  They either sell the products on their websites or at fundraising events.  Our 2 top selling bracelets can be bought for $3.50 each and then they would resell them for $20-$25. So the really help people raise money for their cause.
 The truth is that in today’s economy people want something for their money.  Walkers doing the Susan G Komen or Avon walks are really struggling to raise money.  People won’t write a $25 donation check but will give a $25 check for a bracelet. 
 All of our items we sell we design our self and have made.  People can buy in bulk at low wholesale prices for fundraising OR buy single units in our retail shop where we sell at the suggested retail price.  We donate most of the proceeds from the retail store to various charities.


The first time I read that it gave me chills! Be that someone!
And with products from Fundraising For A Cause it's so easy to be that one person!
In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month they sent me some of their top selling

i had a friend recently a couple years ago her mom had breast cancer and she survived it and we helped her daughter to get through it by inviting her to get out of the house, also it was before i was born or when i was a kid my grandma had it and she is also a survivor, my husbands grandma also had a few years ago, thankfully they are all still alive, with cancer being so common in my family i like to support them in want way i can, recently i crocheted a pink ribbon and pinned it to my purse and a girl said she would wear one of those all the time so i gave it to her than my mom saw a picture of them and asked me to make magnets for her, this month has been fun and creative for me, and i like all the bracelets mostly the first one and also the silver bangle one with all the ribbon so what ever one you think fits my personality
