Eco-fundraiser is an Earth Day fundraiser designed by a mom to help raise awareness about Plastic Pollution - this year's Earth Day theme - and to help schools meet their yearly fundraising goals by offering families a useful product with value! Our mission is simple, but powerful - we hope to support schools in raising extra funds so they can provide their students with a learning environment that allows every child to have what they need to get an exceptional education - and to inspire children and their families to become good environmental citizens of this earth.
How does it work?
We have created a downloadable Eco-guide called, Clean Green Home, designed to help busy parents and their families drastically reduce dependence on single-use plastics, and to save time and money in the process!
Pricing: Schools can customize the price of the guide based on their demographics. We suggest pricing anywhere from $15-48.
Use the money that you raise to help your school expand and enhance educational experiences, provide additional security measures - or to implement green initiatives such as lunch composting or solar panels which would result in long term savings in your annual budget - think of what you could do with all of that extra GREEN!
To help celebrate Earth Day, and raise awareness about Plastic Pollution within the classroom, Eco-fundraiser will be held April 19 - 23rd, but can also be held on June 8th for World Oceans Day. Participating schools will receive access to our free Eco-classroom guide created to provide teachers with ideas for Plastic Pollution awareness discussions and activities that they can use in class with their students for Earth Day or World Oceans Day. The discussions and activities are designed to help teachers support their students as they begin to build knowledge of the connections that exist between consumers and the natural environment, and to see how they can reduce dependence on single-use plastic within their classroom. By involving students in their classrooms, we hope to create a conversation that continues at home as they begin to use our Clean Green Home Eco-guide with their families.
The process: eco-friendly and simple!
1. Simply register your school here. Registration must be completed by April 15th or June 3rd, 2018. We ask that registration is done by a school representative (such as an officer of the PTO/PTA, or a parent volunteer) who has been given authorization by the PTO/PTA or school district to participate in Eco-fundraiser.
2. Once registered, your representative will receive an email containing 2 letters, one for the PTO to send to families, and the other for teachers to send, and instructions on when to send them. Everything can be done via electronic communication. Our E-letters inform parents about your school’s participation in Eco-fundraiser, and contain a link that brings them directly to our website where they can easily and quickly purchase a copy of our Clean Green Home Eco-guide. Once purchased, it can be instantly downloaded so that families can start using it right away!
3. Send E-letter via electronic communication to parents on April 19 or 20th. We also suggest that teachers send an E-letter to parents on April 23rd to tell them about their class Earth Day Plastic Pollution Awareness discussion or project, and because it helps encourage parent participation in Eco-fundraiser by offering them another opportunity to purchase their Clean Green Home Eco-guide.
All sales from your school are tracked on our website. Your school will receive a check for 70% of the total sales!
That's it! Simple!
