SPRING INTO ACTION WITH A SHOE FUNDRAISER
Spring has sprung and warm weather is here to stay! As businesses, schools, and organizations begin to reopen their doors to the world, there has never been a better time to support a good cause by organizing a shoe fundraiser!
Support local businesses with a shoe fundraiser
Business owners can bolster the support of your shoe fundraiser in a number of ways. Perhaps incentivize your shoe fundraiser by offering a nominal discount to anyone willing to donate a pair of new or gently worn shoes with their purchase. There is also the option of setting up permanent shoe donation drop off boxes so that patrons may participate in your shoe fundraiser at their convenience.
Support your school with a fundraiser
The warmer months are a great time to get out and put the word out there about your shoe fundraiser. Host a beach day, or park party where members of your community are invited to come have fun in the sun for a good cause. Reinforce the idea that anyone willing to bring shoes to be donated will be doing their part in helping ensure a successful upcoming school year. In the later months of summer pay attention to back-to-school shopping trends. August and September are great times to promote your shoe fundraiser, as many parents will be doing back-to-school shopping. Because children tend to grow out of shoes at an alarmingly fast rate, many parents will likely have used shoes that they no longer need.
Support the environment with a fundraiser
Support those in need with a shoe fundraiser
In many underdeveloped nations around the world there are people who struggle through their daily lives without adequate footwear. Many are impeded from pursuing education or job opportunities due to a lack of proper footwear. Shoes in these countries are not a resource as easily obtained as they are here in the United States.
Many of these nations have underdeveloped infrastructures and lack paved streets and roads. This means that the citizens of these countries must walk on dirt paths, subjecting themselves to harmful bacteria, diseases, and injuries. When you organize a shoe fundraiser through The Fundraising Company, you can find comfort knowing that you are doing your part to provide shoes to those who are less fortunate and in need of assistance.
