Are you a take-part, take-action type of parent? Then we want you!

If you’re a member of a Volunteer Committee, PTA or PTO and are thinking of ways to raise funds for your organization, charity or cause then we have the answer! Our online Fundraising Program is perfect for Schools, Daycare, Sports Teams, Recreational Activities and special events!

With our Fundraising Program, you don’t need to collect forms or funds, haul around boxes of sugary treats, or even go door-to-door pleading for a donation. All you have to start making money is sign up, recruit members (like other parents, committee members, teachers, coaches, etc) and then promote your fundraising campaign. Follow our tips for a successful campaign and you’ll watch you efforts produce the results you want! Our Fundraising Program is quick, easy and customized to meet your needs. Add your organization/team logo, choose the name of your campaign and even tailor promotional materials to direct supporters effectively.

If we haven’t convinced you that our program is amazing, here are some more reasons why you should fundraise with Mabel’s Labels:

  1. Parents love our labels! (And, so do the kiddos!)
    With many kids with allergies, parents aren’t so keen on fundraising offerings like cookie dough, pies, popcorn and cookies. Our labels are sugar-free, allergy-free and won’t give you that feeling of buyer’s remorse because you can’t consume our product while watching infomercials when insomnia hits. Plus, our labels help keep expensive items out of the lost and found. Invest in labelling, support an organization and keep your stuff, all while making money. Sounds almost too good to be true….but it is!

 

  1. You don’t need to be the Lone Fundraiser
    Don’t like offering to take the reins for a Fundraising Program because you just don’t want the responsibility of making it a success all by yourself? No need to be afraid to step up to the plate, we’ve made it easy for you! All you need to do is become the Campaign Captain – this means you will be the “leader” and will receive communications regarding your fundraiser. What it also means is that you will be able to invite others to join your team and share how to make money for your cause. And even better, those you invite can invite others too! You know how it goes; she tells her, who tells him, who tells them and voila, a team is born! So tell that bad taste from a previous experience gone wrong to take a hike, because with Mabel’s Labels, we make sure our Fundraising Program is a group effort.

 

  1. Get your funds fast!
    No need to gather forms and funds, tally your efforts or even get out a calculator. With our Fundraising Program you can see real-time results on your campaign page so you will know just how far away or close you are to your goal. With our campaign periods being a maximum of 60 days in length, you’re able to focus your efforts and maximize your results. Introduce Mabel to others like she’s your new friend (well, because she is) during your campaign and you’ll be amazed by how many others will want to know her too. And then once your campaign is over, you’ll receive a cheque almost immediately! No quarterly payments, means no more opening the mailbox every day for months! Check this out; if you’re fundraising for an event like a walk or run, you can plan your campaign accordingly and ta-da you’ll have your contribution well before the event.

 

  1. 4.    Make money while you’re out at the park with your kids.

Want to know how to make money while doing nothing? It’s easy! Once your campaign is over (remember, you choose how long you want your campaign to be; 30, 45 or 60 days) your campaign is still able to earn 5% commission on sales. So if there’s someone that wasn’t in the loop from the start and wants to support your cause, they can! During this Annuity Period you can focus your efforts on other fundraising efforts, like those darn chocolate bars if you must, BUT don’t forget about Mabel’s Labels. Be sure to keep telling others and then once the annuity is over, you can start another campaign and do it all over again. Or, take a break and come back when the time is best – our most popular seasons are Back-to-School, Camp or over the Holidays.

Our Fundraising Program Gets a Makeover!

Our Fundraising Program has gotten a makeover!

Don’t you love watching make-over episodes on TV? Whether it be for people, houses, landscapes or even pets – the most fun is seeing the big reveal; the after to the shabby before.

Our Fundraising Program was never really all that shabby, but now it’s a knock-out! We have updated it so that organizations can run campaign driven programs (30-60 days long) which will cause urgency to purchase and support the fundraiser. Also, organizations like a school or daycare can sign up and then have one, five, or even 50 parents or employees create campaigns to help support and raise funds! Social sharing has never been easier, and dedicated online support is available to assist you when creating your program.

If you are a school, daycare, dance troop, sports team or any organization wishing to fundraise with Mabel’s Labels, we’d love to have you join us! Offering 20% commission on our durable labels, you can’t go wrong with promoting a product that parents and kids love to assist in supporting your cause!

Fundraiser Spotlight: Autism Service Dogs

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!
