Do You Need a New Product to Fundraise for Your Organization? Try Barefoot!

Posted by Talula on July 4, 2009

  

Q #1:  Are you on the Fundraising Committee for your school or organization?

Q#2:  Are you tired of the old candy, gift wrap, popcorn, coupon books?

Q#3:  Do people in your office avoid you when your fundraising season begins in earnest?

Q#4:  Would you like to turn all that around to a new & positive experience?

A#1:   CHECK OUT BAREFOOT BOOKS AS A FUNDRAISING OPTION!

Our beautifully illustrated and award-winning children’s books  come in all shapes and sizes to make a family friendly item that is easy to promote. We have over 400 items of delightful fairytales and folklore from cultures all over the globe.  Our modestly priced books, puzzles, puppets, audio books and global music CD’s are produced by some of the finest makers of children’s products in the world!

With monthly sale priced items and our very simple onsite or online fundraising systems – it is a SNAP! to promote our products to raise money for your group, not to mention the word-of-mouth benefit for supporting children’s literacy, diversity in the illustrations, text & format of our books, and our many charitable & “green” partnerships!

It can be as simple as placing one of our  Barefoot Books buttons or banners on your site;  assigning you an event code, then supporters/ customers can shop & order directly from your website, having items shipped to their own home! What could be easier than that?

Or a sample group of books can be set up to display in the lobby of your business or org for a day or two; then folks can take home a flyer with the ordering info.  The customer makes a simple order online and your org benefits!

Of course, if you prefer an old fashioned onsite bookfair; we can arrange those, too.
