Fundraising

We’ve outgrown our capacity to conduct operations from a home garage and kitchen. We are seeking funds to secure a dedicated facility. With a dedicated space, we will be able to scale up our operations, reducing the volume of crayons that end up in landfills by hundreds of thousands of pounds annually, while also increasing by tens of thousands the number of hospitalized children we can supply with our remanufactured crayons. Help us meet our goal so we can move out of a garage and start building an operation that will deliver crayons to millions of hospitalized children and keep thousands of tons of wax out of our landfills. Funds raised will also be allocated to purchase additional crayon molds, secure a longer lease, and purchase equipment that will allow us to operate more efficiently.

Fundraising Ideas:

Here are a few ideas for how your school can raise money for donation to The Crayon Initiative!

• Colorful Cakes Bake Sale: Pancake & Coloring Breakfast (with paper lining and tons of crayons!) • Art Show: Showcase artwork made by the students for bidding or sale.

• Recycled Craft Fair: Sell crafts created by students and/or families from your community.

• Color-a-Thon: Ask for donations based on how much you can color.

• Recycling Bottle Drive: Use the funds to donate to The Crayon Initiative or for shipping costs.

• Approach Local Restaurants: Have them host a Fundraising Night with a 15% proceeds donation.

• Decorated Furniture: Auction off decorated “Flatgoods” furniture.
