COMPLETED FUNDRAISERS
Flower Power – Students had the opportunity to participate in an online sale of flowerbulbs and plants through Flower Power Fundraising. The sale ran from Oct. 1st through Oct.15th, and participation in this fundraiser was OPTIONAL. Students received emails from Flower Power Fundraising with instructions on how to set up their personal sale page for friends and family and add contact info. They were able to promote their fundraiser through Facebook by creating a personal landing/sale site. Flower Power Fundraising handled money collection, packaging and shipping orders to customers. Students earned 50% from their sales and those funds are credited directly to their personal tour account. Here is the link to Flower Power website.
