Over the years we’ve had a variety of organizations host a fundraiser with us to assist in generating funds for their cause. Like people, every fundraiser is different and we felt it was time to shine the spotlight on some of the people and organizations running a Mabel’s Labels Fundraiser.
In October 2013, Cayleb received his National Service Dog, Ivy
Kaley is a busy mom of three and has been a Mabel’s Labels customer since 2007. She purchased her first set of labels for her son, Bryceson, when he started preschool and discovered that she could host a fundraiser selling the products. She tucked this tid-bit of information, away. It wasn’t until April 2012 that she recalled the fundraising program and registered, Paws, for Cayleb, to assist with her goal of raising funds by earning 20% commission. Her son Cayleb was approved for the waiting list to receive a service dog for autism from National Service Dogs. The average cost to train and maintain a service dog over an 8-10 year working life is valued at $30,000.
Knowing many family and friends that wanted to support her efforts for the service dog, she suggested that they do it through purchasing personalized labels from Mabel’s Labels. She loves that the fundraising program is easy and that the product is shipped directly to the people that ordered! In conjunction to hosting an online fundraiser with Mabel’s Labels, Kaley and her family have raised over $24,000 with help from other fundraising initiatives like a Bowl-a-thon, 50/50 tickets, silent auction, bake sale, Raffle, Chocolate bar sales, and donations.
Sharing her customized fundraising link through email, Facebook and on www.pawsforcayleb.blogspot.ca has not only helped spread the word about Mabel’s Labels to assist in supporting her cause, but has also raised awareness of autism and of National Service Dogs within her community. We applaud you Kaley!
As someone who manages many fundraisers, the best advice Kaley can give is to get started immediately. Then be sure to promote your fundraiser at key times. She likes to roll out her Mabel’s Labels campaign before summer camp and back-to-school.
We wish Kaley, Cayleb and Ivy continued success and happiness. Thank-you for choosing to fundraise with Mabel’s Labels!
