You know you are in good fundraising hands when a member of your P&C is non-other than Shannon Meyerkort of Fundraising Mums. Given her wealth of knowledge, we were pretty chuffed to find out that she championed our tote bags as an end of year fundraiser for Jolimont Primary School last year.
Rather than create a traditional design using students’ artwork, instead they asked us to help come up with a design featuring all of the local street names in the school’s suburb. The navy and white bag not only looks fabulous but using this type of artwork allowed them to buy in bulk to sell at events in 2017 and beyond. Shannon says, “The P&C see them as an investment and we plan on pulling them out at a number of events we have planned this year, such as the Grandparent’s morning tea, Welcome Picnic and the end of year Fete…I have three though and they get a very good workout! The girls used them as swimming bags last year when we had whole of school swimming and I now use one in the mornings when we ride and I don’t want to be burdened with a handbag.”
We’re predicting more tote bag projects than ever this year as 2018 finally sees the plastic bag ban come into action in almost every state, read Shannon’s post about fundraising with our bags over on her page HERE.
