Wouldn't you like to be able to raise funds for your school, support sustainable businesses and local businesses all without hawking or buying a single fundraiser item you didn't need or want?
I'm here to tell you it's possible.
Have you heard about TheDoGooder.com?
The DoGooder.com has created a new hands free way to fund raise while offering you savings on things you actually need and want.
It's kind of like Groupon or Living Social, but with a better cause in mind - your child's school. And they only promote sustainable and socially responsible companies. And - this is my favorite part - once you are a member (it's free) you can access news, pod casts, blogs, lesson plans, at home projects, healthy dinner recipes and nightly dinner conversation starters - all designed to heighten sustainability awareness.
It's kind of like a green Oprah show - you learn, you raise money for your school, you feel good!
Click here to go to their site and see a short video explaining it. Then you must register your school - looks like anyone can do it, you just need a bit of info.
Then the savings begin for you, and money goes to your child's school.
Since I didn't know all the info for my kid's school (like a tax #) - I'm going to forward this over to the powers that be - do the same for your school and let the money roll in.
No more bake sales anyone?
