Nurseries and schools love it when parents label their children’s belongings. But did you know that you can raise up to £2 per order for your school, nursery or playgroup just by buying your nametapes from My Nametags? Find out how…
You’ve probably helped out at or supported a variety of fantastic fundraising events at your child’s school such as cake sales, Christmas and summer fairs, BBQ’s etc before. But just by ordering your name tags through us you can also raise money for your child’s school. It’s incredibly easy and doesn’t involve any extra cost.
Zoe D’Souza, mum of 2, runs the uniform shop for Thorns Infant school in Warwickshire and has fundraised for her school through My Nametags for 2 years. “It’s so easy and it’s extra money that you wouldn’t get otherwise and all from a label that’s absolutely fantastic!” Zoe’s top tip is to ask mums who order on line to let her know as it will still count towards the fundraising efforts.
Follow these follow these 5 simple steps and you could raise extra funds for your school:
- Contact us via email or phone and we will send you as many order forms as you need.
- Distribute the order forms to parents in school bags/newsletters etc.
- Collect the order forms and cheques (made payable to “My Nametags”) from parents. Send off to My Nametags marked clearly with school/nursery name and address.
- We will process your orders and send all the personalized nametags back to your school/nursery for you to distribute.
- My Nametags sends your school/nursery a cheque for £1 per set ordered plus any postage. This usually works out to be £2 per order.
Large orders save us time and postage and we are more than happy to pass these savings back to your school, nursery, playgroup or Parent Teacher’s Association (PTA). There’s no need to pre-register.
We send out fundraising cheques after the 10th order. But don’t worry if you collect less than 10 sets of orders we will still process them and keep a record them. When you next send in another order we will add them to your original order and when you reach 10 we’ll send your school/nursery a fundraising cheque.
For example – If six parents order a set of nametags we will process the order and keep a record of them. A few weeks or even a term later you may get another five orders. We will add the two orders together and send your school a fundraising cheque taking into account the 11 orders (6 initial and 5 later orders). Your school will receive a cheque for £22! (£11 x £1 fundraising per set plus 11 x £1 postage.)
Our standard set of nametags costs £9.95 plus postage, and includes 75 iron-on name tags and 75 sticker labels.
