Dec. 17, 2006 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Austin, Texas–December 18, 2006— The days of traditional candy fundraising that only offers a group 40-50% profit might be coming to an end.
By January 1, 2007, Buy For Charity will be unveiling a fundraiser discount card that will allow shoppers to save money on their purchases while generating a revenue stream of much needed funds for non-profit organizations of all kinds. Buy For Charity has utilized its relationship with online retailers from their charity mall to put together the most anticipated fundraising card to date. This Fundraiser Discount Card will offer discounts of up to 40% off from hundreds of major online retailers including Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, Target, Home Depot, Dell, Sharper Image, Overstock.com, and many more.
The average online shopper can save hundreds and even thousands of dollars using this card which gives access to a website with all of the online discounts. You will be able to purchase Airline Tickets from Expedia, Office Products from Office Depot and Office Max, cosmetics from Avon, gifts from Sharper Image, Electronics from Circuit City, and computers and printers from Dell. Just about every major online retailer you can think of is involved with this program. The Online Shopping Discount Card is new, which gives groups the ability to offer something to the public that was not previously available.
The profit associated with this Fundraising Discount Card is far above traditional candle, cookie dough, Tupperware fundraising, and others. Schools, youth groups, little leagues, churches, and all varieties of non-profit organizations interested in selling this fundraiser card to friends, family, and group members for only $10, will earn 70-100% profit.
Online Shopping is catching on everywhere. In 2006, shoppers are expected to buy about 25 percent of their holiday goods online, with a typical shopper spending nearly $800, according to the National Retail Federation. For 2007, e-commerce transactions are expected to be $228 billion.
Even if the online shopping card doesn’t appeal to your group, Buy For Charity’s offers a pizza card fundraiser that has been a huge success over the last few years. These pizza cards offer 20 Buy One Get One Free pizza specials to participating pizza locations across the country. The pizza cards are typically valued between $200-300 and the groups doing the fundraising sell the cards to the public for only $10.
