Fair-Trade Soccer Ball - Sporty Fundraising!

The Fair-Trade sporting balls we carry are some of my favorite products. Plus, it is charity "double-dipping" since we donate a portion of our sale to your organization, and the supplier donates a portion of their profit to select children's charities they regularly support as Room to Read and The Boys and Girls Club.

These sporting balls are made by adult workers who produce the balls to receive a fair wage. This doesn't mean the balls cost more to you - the end user. We and the supplier just make less profit. Period.

The balls are Eco-certified and certified Fair Trade. Union-made and vegan. $25.00-$55.00

Eco-friendly Lunch Bags- Fundraising De-Li-cious!

Lunch can be fun and healthy! Pack your kids lunch to make sure they are getting a healthy mid-day meal! EcoLabel Fundraising will be offering these whimsical lunch bags ($22.95) in many patterns. We love the lady bug pattern for girls and the jungle for boys. (or vice versa!)

The fabrics are produced in accordance with strict environmental laws and are Oeko-Tex certified; the coating is made from acrylic and not PVC. The manufacturer uses no chlorine and only water soluble dyes in the production process.

Soy Candle - Fundraising Can Smell Good!

EcoLabel Fundraising
is officially rolling out our line in early November, but we wanted to give you a sneak peak of some of the items now!

Each day we will list one new product we will carry. Of course, our line will be much larger than what we feature here, but this will give you a good "feel" for what we will offer.


Today, we are featuring a soy candle ($23.50, 3" x 3.5" glass pillar) from Bazil Essentials.

Straight from their website here's what they say about their candles:

"Awaken your senses and enjoy the fresh citrus-like scent of lemongrass. Leaves you feeling alive and rejuvenated. 11 oz.

Our soy candles are made with 100% pure soy wax, and scented with only natural essential oils. These 3" x 3.5" glass pillars are lovingly wrapped in tissue paper and packaged in a natural recycled kraft paper box. Made with a Cotton Wick. Burn time is approximately 60 hours.

All Natural Soy Candles are a wonderful alternative to Paraffin Wax Candles (a petroleum based by-product of refined gasoline). Studies have shown that carcinogens released by paraffin wax candles are as dangerous as second hand cigarette smoke and can cause harm to the heart, lungs, circulatory system, and nervous system. This is not only a health concern, but also an environmental concern. Paraffin wax candles release carcinogens into the atmosphere when burned similar to that of gasoline being burned by an automobile.


* Soy wax is a very clean burning wax, no toxins and an incredibly small amount of soot

* Soy wax burns cooler and longer than petroleum wax, meaning you get more candle for the money

* Biodegradable and water soluble

* for children and pets

* Easily cleaned up with soap and water

* Environmentally sensitive

* A Renewable resource that supports economic growth and US Farmers, AND lessens our dependence on foreign oil

* We use only natural essential oils to scent our candles. No yucky chemical fragrance oils or chemical dyes!! Why would you want to add chemicals to these beautiful, healthy natural candles?"

Pretty fabulous, huh?

Our New Website Sneak Peak!

I thought I'd give you all a sneak peak of our new website! We are set to be up and running on November 1st! We are very excited!

Note: The products shown on this page are not those that we will be offering on our site. These pictures are just for the example.

Long Live the Traditional Non-Profit or School Auction!

We at EcoLabel Fundraising love hearing about the great traditional fund-raising events like Autumn Galas or Annual Auctions. The traditional and anticipation for the supporters and, in a school's case, students, is irreplaceable. We know that it can be daunting for the organizers, but keep up the good work Auction and Carnival event organizers around the country!

Some of our staff talked about those events recently. I recalled back to the day when I would go to and work at the church fund-raising's Fall Festival. My brother and I would look forward to playing the games and eating all those homemade pies! If they had done away with it, we would have been devestated!

Keep it up! I wish I could attend every one of our cooperating or potentially cooperating school or non-profit's Gala, Auction or Festival. What fun that would be!

Having a fund-raising plan is like having a diversified portfolio. We would love to help you raise all that extra money above and beyond your big annual event! Spend your energy on making those memories last for your children and supporters, we'll take the work out of the other fundraising drive for you!

Happy Apple Bobbing, Ring Tossing, Silent Auction Bidding, Craft Making, Bingo Playing, Wheel Spinning, Tractor Racing, Pie Eating, Face Painting......

School and Non-profit Fundraising Made Easy

The much anticipated unveiling of our holiday line for our Holiday Campaign 2008 Fundraising drive is just around the corner. We keep the products under wrap to keep your supporters curious! We also don't want your supporters getting fatigue around what should be an enjoyable time of the year.

EcoLabel Fundraising's Holiday Drive 2008 starts on November 5th!

We have people contacting us constantly wanted to learn more about our program and concerned that they have already started a campaign for this season. Eco-friends don't fret. Many people find it successful to add our program on as a supplemental program to your current fund-raising initiatives.

Getting set up is easy.

First, fill out the registration papers, which you may download from our site.
(temporary site, that is, while our site is being re-built to offer extraordinary functions for participating organizations).

Second, return the completed forms to us.

Third, get the word out to your supporters. We offer .pdf brochures you can send as attachments or print out. (although we like to encourage you to limit paper waste and of course print on recycled paper!) We also offer letters you may email out to supporters.

Four, have your webmaster post a link to our site on your site (this is not manatory but high recommended so your supporters can easily find us!)

Fifth, relax, put your feet up. Just wait for the checks with organizations name to come from us.
