Re: [cowlesmontessori] Re: Fundraiser IDEA
- Wow the earth day idea is great too. I would love to have a bag with some art on it, a lot better than all the logos I carry around (even though they are businesses I want to support)! That sounds great! It sounds like the time must be right for this idea....as a side note too - we can make more money ordering them on our own. I LOVE Cafepress but they take a really large cut of the money and unless we had large ongoing orders we would not make much. Perhaps we could take pre-orders and then we would not end up ordering too many, at least?Blessings & Health,Kristie-------Original Message-------From: hnschebelDate: 11/15/2007 10:39:34 AMSubject: [cowlesmontessori] Re: Fundraiser IDEA
I proposed the same idea to Sue Gunnick over email about 6 weeks
ago. In fact my email to her was so similar to yours, I thought
maybe she was putting it out for me now that the Auction is over!
Great minds and all that sort of thing...
Anyway, I think (obviously) it is a great idea and I would love to
help organize something. I was thinking that we could have the kids
create Earth Day related art and we could pick the winning art and
put it on a bag that we sell for Earth Day.
I found a website that makes bulk orders for anywhere from $3/bag
down to $1.75/bag depending on how many you order, so we could
compare that to cafepress, which I have used before so I know they
