St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. What do you do on St. Patrick's Day? Well, most people wear green! If you want to "go green" in an entirely different way this March, consider holding a "Go Green" fundraising extravaganza to get much needed money for your cause while helping your community!
Green is not just a physical color to look at. "Going green" is the phrase used to represent using materials that are recyclable in order to save our planet from unneeded excess waste in landfills.
Let your potential customers know that you are selling a variety of recycled garbage bags to help them get into the St. Patrick's Day Green spirit. They will be able to use them around the home to do their springtime cleanup, making garbage collection feel good to use bags that are made from 100% recycled material.
Another green option is a Smencils Fundraiser. These pencils are a fun way to get kids to do their homework willingly. Smencils are made from 100% recycled newspapers, making them an eco-friendly alternative to regular pencils. The best part? Smencils are scented with delicious aromas! And if you want to go extra green, try the Smart Smencils They are peppermint-green.
St. Patrick's is a good opportunity to develop new fundraising ideas, here are a couple:
Send out a green flyer to each prospective customer asking them to help support your cause by purchasing a green item.
If you are selling the items at a table sale, place a shamrock sticker on each roll of garbage bags thanking customers for their involvement with helping your group. Place an individual Smencil through a paper shamrock by cutting slits in it. Kids will enjoy celebrating the holiday with their new writing utensil, while showing their St. Patrick's Day pride. Go Green, friends...and Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!fundraising-ideas
