Put down the raffle tickets. Forget candy sales. You’ve tried it all before. The popcorn, the cookies, the fruit baskets. The garage sales, the bake sales, the car washes. The flowers, the umbrellas, the calendars. These are all fundraising ideas of the past. How many umbrellas does the average person need? Do people want you touching their cars? How much sugar-heavy chocolate will health-conscious people buy?
Custom scarves, beanies, and socks are the unique, creative, sure-to-stand-out way to go. Everyone has a neck, and scarves are a high-value, low-risk proposition. Flowers die, cars get dirty, and candy gets eaten. But scarf enjoyment is forever! (And zero-calorie.)
From sports teams to organizations, schools, and events, scarves are a timeless fundraising idea. With a high-quality scarf and design in hand, scarves are an easy sell. Fans will jump at the chance to wear their team spirit and share in the tradition.
