With four kids and in between school, kindy, sports and other activities not a week goes by where we don’t receive another fundraising request. I absolutely understand that communities rely on donations/time from generous members to survive but after a while seeing all the same familiar fundraising ideas gets a little boring, there are only so many sausages, chocolates and donuts one can eat!
If you’re looking for a unique, fun and more meaningful way to raise funds for your community you are sure to love Dress My Bear, an exciting new concept for community and school fundraisers that will really get people talking.
Dress My Bear teddies are soft, cuddly teddy bears dressed in a t-shirt with artwork of your choice, measuring 25cm in height. You can use the logo of your school, kindy or sports club, a personal message or slogan, a photo of your class or team or even a handmade design… the options are endless and the end result will be a lovely keepsake that will be treasured for years to come.
Understandably a Dress My Bear fundraising teddy bear will cost more than most other fundraising ideas but the amount raised per bear is also more and you actually receive a personal, durable gift that is yours to keep (and no unwanted calories or cavities!). Prices start at $23.95 per bear and the recommended RRP is $29.95, that’s a nice profit of $6 per bear going straight into your community’s savings jar. Dress My Bear will supply you with all the information and forms you need to start your fundraising event, it’s easy.
I think a personalised Dress My Bear would be a very original reminder of your class graduation or school’s anniversary (remember you have to start early for end-of-year celebrations!) but of course you don’t have to be part of a community to order your own Dress My Bear. Anyone can order a personalised teddy online and create a unique bear for a special someone, there are no minimum quantities. It’s a great gift idea for new babies, birthdays and communions or get creative with handprints, drawings and names and surprise dad with a huggable friend this Father’s Day.
