Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer RibbonWhen it comes to October, most of us are thinking ghouls, goblins, and the fun of Halloween. While there are non-Halloween holidays in October, they're not exactly the best theme for fundraisers (Columbus Day just doesn't quite work out when it comes to fun). However, October is also known for a critical health awareness issue, and it's something that your organization can tap into while raising funds.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This topic has touched the lives of so many people worldwide and it's a good topic to engage the community with. Even if your organization has nothing to do with health-related issues, the universal nature of breast cancer concern can always use more exposure.

The simplest way to get involved is by contacting your local breast cancer organization. There are national groups, local groups, and educational classes at local health centers. It could be as simple as getting in touch with a local group and saying you'd like to do a joint fundraiser that is mutually beneficial to both organizations. These groups might have partner programs or outreach events where a little bit of synergy can take place. You might even be able to get bulk pink awareness ribbons to sell. Sometimes, all you have to do is ask.

Of course, you can take matters into your own hands too. By publicizing any fundraising event - from a World Series watching party to a Halloween-themed fundraiser - as a breast-cancer awareness special where you split the profits or provide education, you'll almost certainly get more attention from a wide range of audiences.

There's no doubt that your organization's cause is important, but there's no reason why it can't share the spotlight to join in on National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Because at the end of the day, it's an issue that affects every one of us to some degree.

Grand Prize Incentives

Grand Prize Incentive

Sure, your staff and volunteers are all for fighting for your cause, working fundraisers and creating awareness to try and reach a greater goal. But everyone likes a nice prize, especially when it's as rewarding as a great trip or a relaxing spa visit.

Introducing FastTrack Fundraising's prize incentive program, the ideal way to keep fundraisers engaged and motivated for large groups working with fundraisers bigger than $1,000. Best of all? It comes at no cost to you. But first, here's what you can get:

Golf/spa getaway: A 3-day/2-night hotel getaway that includes either a round of golf or a spa treatment.
Complimentary airfare: An exclusive buy-one-get-one-free purchase of any round-trip airfare ticket.
Bluetooth headset: A top-of-the-line bluetooth headset to work with phones and computers.
MP3 player: A sleek, slim MP3 player to carry your favorite tunes.

Sound interesting? Here's how it works: just order at least $1,000 worth of fundraisers from FastTrack and enter in a special code for which prize you want. When your fundraiser ships, FastTrack also sends the prize - which you award to whoever you want in your organization.

Give it to your top seller, best organizer, or most helpful volunteer; it's whoever deserves it most. Suddenly, fundraising got a whole lot more fun.

New Fridge Frame Samples!
We now offer samples to go along with our Fridge Frame Fundraiser. A sample is a powerful tool that can help enrich your program and drive up sales. How many times when you buy things online do you wish you can see, touch, and feel what you are actually buying? For a small fee of $3.00 per sample (free shipping!), you will receive sample of our Fridge Frames valued at $10.00

Your members can use these samples to help sell more Fridge Frames for your fundraiser. Your members will no longer find themselves having a hard time trying to describe the Fridge Frames and more time showing their supporters what a great product it is. They can simply hand them the sample to the supporter, who can see and feel the quality of our Fridge Frames.

What is even better is for every 20 Fridge Frames you group sells, we will pay you back for a sample and then they are yours to keep!

If you are interested in ordering samples please contact us at (866) 432-7838 or simply order them online by clicking here.
