Most of us have been pitched an overpriced bucket of cookie dough or magazine subscriptions we don’t really want or need, all in the name of supporting a good cause. Some groups find themselves having to spend money on the front end to make a modest fundraising profit in return. Even the teachers, coaches, and scout leaders dread having to announce the seasonal fundraiser.
What if this often painful process of fundraising was made to be, in fact, painless? What if it were made easy and actually took advantage of habits people already have?
The thinknlocal app does exactly this. And it’s automated –no phone calls, no letters to write, no money spent purchasing items to sell, no appointments to talk to a shop manager!
Fundraising causes for the groups we love and support are matched up with businesses wanting to rally behind them. In turn, the supporters of these groups (who are local consumers of goods and services, anyway) are going to be even more motivated to shop. Now, a shopping trip is supporting local business, the City, and of course, a great fundraising cause!
