There are two types of fundraisers that are the best. These are the ones that sell products that:
(A) everyone can use and
(B)don’t waste resources, promoting products that help the environment.
Can you imagine running a fundraiser that qualified on both levels?
Smencils are made up of recycled newspapers. They are-non toxic colored pencils made of old newsprint with a graphite core, and come in ten different scents. The grape, watermelon, cinnamon and other fragrances used are ecologically safe and the erasers are biodegradable, making this product as green as it gets.
Kids love Smencils, teachers love Smencils, parents love Smencils! These incredible products practically sell themselves, and make any group an easy profit with their flat 50% profitability. The recyclable buckets hold 50 Smencils each (five of each ‘flavor’), and a minimum order is a case of ten buckets. Most families can easily sell one or two buckets.
With the dual emphasis on education and earth friendliness, Smencils are the perfect choice for any fundraising group. The reasonable one case minimum makes it perfect for lower budget organizations, and the quick shipping allows for spur of the moment repeat orders if necessary. The ‘double your money’ return is an attractive profit margin, and the Smencils themselves sell well.
The best way to maximize profitability is to repackage the Smencils for sale in an eco friendly way. Use recycled, hand decorated paper to band groups of ten that include one pencil of each color, and get people to go for whole set! That’s only ten $10 sales per bucket, which is doable for most fundraisers as well as potential customers.
Smencils are fun, they are useful, and they sell like hotcakes. Consider using Smencils for your next fundraiser!
