I always dreaded the day when my daughter came home with the school fundraiser pamphlets. I would study those catalogs from front to back and couldn’t for the life of me find anything within it worth the money to purchase. I’d think Christmas gifts for the grandparents, but I knew they didn’t need any nicknacks either, they’d be just as happy (or happier) with a drawing that my daughter did on the back of a restaurant placemat.
How’s that for a novel school or non-profit fundraiser? That’s exactly what can be done with KidsKards! Children’s artwork can be turned into note cards – that you would actually use.
Most people still send out holiday cards, birthday cards or get well notes to others, so using KidsKards as a fundraiser is a win-win for everyone. That’s a whole lot better than buying that figurine or overpriced box of peanut brittle that no one really wanted anyway.
I had posted last month about art therapy and autism, and I think KidsKards is a great fundraiser as a non-profit for any autism foundations you might be involved in. Not only will it be beneficial to the children designing the cards as an avenue for expression, but the note cards can have the organization’s logo and purpose on the back of it, bringing awareness to the purchaser and receiver of the note card.
