Until now, fundraising products have been rather “ho-hum” and the overall experience a bit underwhelming. By listening to experienced fundraising administrators (who’ve seen their share of chocolate bars, gift wraps and candles), we’re addressing pain points that have made the process such a drag.
We are committed to making fundraisers engaging, profitable and fun! That’s why we’ve built some really cool tools to help accomplish these goals. Crayola Flowers…a colorful and unique way to fundraise!
Forget flowers on a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion and you may find yourself in the proverbial dog house. We devised this Cool (“life saving”) Tool so that anyone can schedule reminders about important people in their lives. Just set it and forget it...canines everywhere will rejoice!

Kudos to Ms. Margarine, 3rd grade teacher at Blue Bonnet Elementary School in Country Crock, IL, for inspiring this tool. She wanted the ability to use a portion of profits to get extra flowers (with no cash outlay) to sell to those who missed the chance to participate. We thought it was a great idea and we think you will too.
