Are you tired of selling cookie dough? Sure, we all know it’s a time-honored tradition up there with apple pie, but there’s only so much your community can buy. And it’s unhealthy to promote the making (and eating) of cookies and other sugary snacks, according to America’s First Lady.
Now, there’s a new way to raise funds, and it’s about to make a whole world of difference to schools in North Carolina.
The 100% Fundraiser
That’s correct, 100%. Ok, it sounds impressive but 100% of nothing is still nothing, right? Well, how does 100% of $2,000 sound to you? Or 100% of $8,000? What could your school do with that kind of money! And the best part? It’s free to sign up. All you have to do is register for the new hCard program.
Saving our Schools
This new initiative is already making a difference to schools all over the country, and it’s coming to our state. Starting in Raleigh with satellite offices opening in Winston-Salem and Fayetteville, it won’t be long before residents all over NC will be able to use the hCard to get substantial discounts when they buy from local businesses. And to do so, they need to purchase their cards from a local school. Your local school, which gets to keep 100% of the money raised from the sale of the cards, which you get for free.
Building Local Business
It’s not just about fundraising, although that’s vitally important in these trying economic times. The hCard also helps to build local businesses, by:
- Giving them a presence in an advertising medium that will be used across the state and the nation
- Making them preferred suppliers of goods and services to the community, because of the discounts available through the use of the hCard
- Generating awareness of their support for local schools via the savings program
And of course, it doesn’t stop there either!
Helping the Community
Everyone wants to save money, and every dollar saved when shopping at a local store or business is an extra dollar for the family that saves it. Within a very short time, hCard holders can recoup the $20 cost of their card through the discounts they can access with it.
What’s more, people in public service, such as firefighters, first responders, members of the military and police get their hCard for free, but still enjoy the same discounts and savings. And this doesn’t cost your school anything, because for every business sponsor you recruit you get free cards to give away to community members.
Say Goodbye to the Cookie Dough
The hCard really is a chance for everyone to be a winner, from the businesses that sign up for the program through to the schools raising funds this way. Finally, you can say goodbye to the cookie dough, and hello to exciting, healthy and fulfilling ways to put the fun back in fundraising.
