Idea for a little Fundraiser

Post by NativTxn » Tue Jan 11, 2011 1:03 pm

:idea: How about creating an OCUS Pathtag and set it up as a fundraiser? Tags are usually sold in lots of 20 for $20 on the Geocoin Store website and does not cost the organization anything (you don't have to buy them up front). $5 from each sale goes to the organization designated. We did tags for our Brazos Valley Geocachers and the proceeds went to the Texas Geocaching Association. A check gets cut to the organization after all lots are sold. We started with a run of 200 tags (10 lots). When those sold and a check was sent to TXGA, then we re-ordered more.

I think it's a great idea. I think we could wrangle up 20 people who would want to buy some :)

I could check on it. I think they want an idea up front of how much interest the group has.

My math was wrong. DUH! If we committed to 200 tags, that's only TEN sets. If we need more after that, you can always do reorders as needed.
