You might be thinking “It’s too early to think about the holidays,” but did you realize there are only 13 more Sundays until Christmas? It doesn’t sound that far off anymore, does it? Catalog fundraisers are a versatile and easy way to earn money for your school, group or cause. However, some times of the year are easier than others to urge supporters to purchase products to help your organization. At Mixed Bag Designs we’ve found that Fall fundraisers are the most profitable time to run a catalog sale. What’s one of the biggest reasons? Holiday gifts!
Shopping for holiday gifts while also supporting a fundraiser is a great way to knock a couple “to-dos” off your list while helping a great cause. In addition, shopping from a catalog or through our online store to support a fundraiser saves the hassle of shopping at crowded malls or fighting traffic.
The 13 weeks remaining before Christmas is enough time to sign up for a fundraiser, order supplies, promote and wrap up a fundraiser with plenty of time to receive orders before holiday break.
We’d like to share our top holiday gifts from the Fall 2016 catalogs. Please share these gift ideas with sellers and parents as you get ready to kick off your fundraiser!
