4 Steps for a Successful Fundraiser with Miss Em's!
As the summer is winding down, many organizations are looking for fun and easy ways to fundraise for their cause. Whether this is a Pelotonia team, a cheerleading team, college sorority, boy scout troop, or you’re looking to host a fundraiser to help a local charity,contacting Miss Em’s can be a great step in the right direction!
We promise that our fundraisers are simple and so much fun; so simple, in fact, that there are only four steps to a successful fundraiser:
Step One: Get the gang together. From Volleyball teams to Boy Scout troops, to Pelotonia riders, we’ll host a jewelry party for any organization, even if it’s just a group of your closest friends and family. (Just keep in mind that the more people who attend the party, the more items that are purchased and the more money raised for your cause!) Once you’ve talked it over with your team / organization make sure to contact Miss Em’s to set a date that works for everyone!
Step Two: Set your date and spread the word. Secure a space with plenty of tables (and room to shop) and Miss Em will bring everything that you need. You don’t even need table cloths (although they look nice, but aren’t required!). Set-up only takes about a half hour to an hour, depending on the number of people that can volunteer for set up. Then spread the word about your fundraiser to all of your friends, family coworkers, etc. so that any and all know that they can attend your fundraiser! Miss Em will create a flier for the event (you can as well) to help promote this, but word of mouth, social media, and even a few easy contests between team members can help to bring in even more shoppers!
Step Three: Shop till you drop! We recommend your event last 1-2 hours to give your friends and family enough time to shop! There are so many remarkable bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and scarves to choose from at reasonable prices, but there is typically only one of each piece, so you’ll want to make sure to tell people to get there early to get first dibs! If your organization would like to highlight a specific piece of jewelry or a style be sure to let Miss Em know. For example if this is a fundraiser for a Breast Cancer walk, let Miss Em know so she can grab some breast cancer or pink accessories. But most importantly, have fun with your friends and family who attend and don’t forget to treat yourself to some Miss Em’s pieces!
Step Four: The check is yours. 15% of the total sales made during your event will be delivered via check directly to your organization. Put the money towards your favorite cause, or just towards your group as a whole. Give any and all feedback to Miss Em for next time, fall in love with your new jewelry…and contact her again soon to set up another fundraiser! You’ll be amazed at how much money you can raise in a few hours, as well as how much fun you’ll have while hosting!For more information regarding our fundraisers, please contact Miss Em to learn more.
