A Better Fundraiser

When it comes to fundraisers, door-to-door sales or the supermarket traps come to mind. I am usually open to helping young kids selling magazines or cookies for their fundraisers but sometimes that gets really annoying. Especially when I'm in a hurry to do my shopping or I'm not presentable enough to open my front door.

Traditional methods of fundraising appears to be limited to door-to-door or face-to-face but there is a new way out there that is innovative and fun! SHOUTBACK has a whole new approach to fundraising through an auction system. You can create a group to benefit a cause, or join an existing one to shop, save, or sell to benefit a cause, or sponsor a group to advertise your business and show your support in the community.

I can think of a couple local organizations who can benefit from this including Purrfect Friends. A while back, my friend and I went to a Purrfect Friends Parking Lot Sale , a fundraising event to benefit cats that need medical care and basic essentials like food and litter. We donated items that could be sold at the parking lot sale which were sold within minutes while we were browsing for items we could purchase for ourselves.

SHOUTBACK is a wonderful idea for your next fundraising event! The benefit is that we can reach a lot more people and there is no more annoying door-to-door sales!
