I’ve settled and setup our first major fundraising event! I desperately wanted to do a cookie dough sale. I’ve been involved with them in the past, and when done just before the holidays in the fall, they do very well. I cheked out a number of companies, but everything I found had a catch that just wouldn’t work for my current situation. Being this was our very first fundraiser, I have no clue how the students are going to respond. They could sell 50 or they could sell 300. I think they will do well, but being we have no funds, I have to be very careful in not taking risks on these things. Every company I lookes at had 1 of 2 gotchas. Either they had a large minimum order (150+) or they made you order by the case(So if the case had 8 units, and you needed 9…you had 7 extra..ugh!)
Well, one company, All Aboard Fundraising I checked out called me yesterday and I was blown away by the quality of service. I didn’t feel like I was getting a sales pitch, but was talking to someone who had a true desire to see my group succeed. He set us up with a situation that left us with no risk and still able to make some decent money off of the fundraiser! He even followed up the next day to check-in…which was good, because I was so busy today that I forgot to call him to tell him I wanted to go ahead. He was never pushy, but an absolute pleaseure to deal with. So if you need a fund-raiser anytime soon, I highly reccomend Derek at All Aboard Fundraising!
So…if you need some cookie-dough…..let me know and Ill set you up good!!!
