Hi Everyone,

We are now up and running with our Fall Vendor Fair. This is an easy way to get lots of Holiday Shopping done without leaving home and while supporting The Power of 10 and Give kids the World.

All of the information you will need is located in this link: http://powerof10fair.blogspot.com/

We have 11 vendors up and running and expect to have the last two by the end of the day.

They Include:
31 Gifts
Avon
Creative Memories (Both USA & Canada)
Pampered Chef
Scent-Sations
Silpada
Stampin' Up
Tastefully Simple
Tupperware
UsBorne Books

Mary Kay & Lia Sophia are coming

Each vendor has outlined how to order, any special shipping information and what Give Kids the world gets by your order.

We will also be having Prize Drawings every week. For every $25 you spend you will be entered to win 1 of 13 prizes valued at around $25. Once you are entered you do not come out of the drawing until you win or until the Fair is over so the earlier and more you spend the better your chances are of winning.

The Sale Ends October 31st so lets get shopping friends!!

If you have any questions please feel free to PM me.. Our goal is $1000 for GKTW which is attainable with your help!!

I'm not sure a "per dollar" is the best way to go. Some consultants don't get a base line of commission, and some can't donate on a per dollar base because the cost of if they have to ship something to a client or prizes or whatever be the case. It may be best to go based on a percentage rate for their profits unless their company has a specific fundraiser selection.

This is true with my company. I do not get a flat rate commission. So the donation to GKTW will be a percentage of my profits. I just have to figure out how to incorporate the cost of prizes as well. Of course this is all possible, just have to get my math hat on ;)

Going to an Usborne team meeting to come up with the best way to get the most for GKTW! There are different types of shows and fairs that we do so we're going to figure out what works best. Some of our shows are done where free books are given and others with a combination of books and/or money.

I will see if I can find any other companies to join us. My supervisor has a group that she works with for fairs!

TSWJan78

It will all be online. Once we have all the vendors lined we will post a link to all of the different vendors along with how much from each vendor will be donated to GKTW. Everything will be shipped directly to you and payment will be made to the company. Make sense?

I am so excited that I finally caught up on listening to the podcast and found this thread a week or so ago. I'm thrilled that we are doing this type of event, because commission is a simple and easy way to donate (and help others donate in the process). GKTW is such a wonderful organization and I hope that we can give them a ton of money through this project.

What else do we need to do?
I will have mine end on Oct. 31st so I have time to get the additional books that I am going to sell at my sale in mid November for the rest of my donation!

have a great weekend everyone and happy selling!

Should we have everyone post their links to share with everyone else or has the fundraiser been set up?

Tara,

Should everyone post the links to their websites/e-shows here? That way we can share them with our friends on FB as well. I posted mine on Saturday.

haven't had a chance to listen to the podcasts from this past week yet so wasn't sure if anything was said about them.

Hi Everyone! I have setup a second party with the full line of products that I can send via email to anyone who is interested. Unfortunately the percentage donated to GKTW will not be as high but our full catalog line is available. Simply send me and email and I will get an "invite" with a link out to you as soon as possible. The profit that GKTW would recieve form orders done in this way will be:
$0-499: 10% of all sales will be given to GKTW
$500-1,199: 15% of all seles will be given to GKTW
$1200 and up: 20% all sales will be given to GKTW
Over $5000 in sales: 25% of all sales will be given to GKTW

Let's get shopping and raise a TON of money for GKTW!

Tara, if you can add this to the blog, I would really appreciate it! Hope this will help raise more money and clear up the limited product confusion.

Hey guys, I would love to include Uppercase Living and our new Blume Jewelry line to the vendor fair offerings, and would happy to leave it open to Christmas and beyond. I had sent Kathy a FB message about it a couple of months ago, and she was going to ask the guys about it. I just heard this weeks podcast and learned there was a whole group for it now. Does anyone know who I need to contact to get added? My entire commission would be donated, which would be 30%. I'm so excited to help out!!! Also, with our great vinyl designs, I want the hostess credits to go towards decorating needs at the GKTW campus in any way that they might need. So happy to find this and to get involved!!!! What a wonderful cause!!!!

I just went in and changed the closing date of my online show to Dec. 10! That's close to the cutoff date our company has for guaranteeing orders will arrive by Christmas. I had to change it before Monday and didn't want to forget!

Does that sound like a good date to everyone? I can change mine again if necessary but didn't want to forget to extend it!

I am hoping to place another order next week.

Is the fund raiser still going? It seems like many of the vendors were hinting that they would like to continue this for Christmas shopping season.
Are they all still participating? Or has anyone dropped off since 10/31?

What is our new end date for each vendor? It would be very helpful if the first page could be updated so we know how much longer we have to place orders for Christmas.

I know several of us are still going. I will submit orders when I have $200 in an event. Currently, I have about $140. I'm giving it until next week, then I will make a purchase to cover the rest. I plan to keep rolling until the half marathon in February.

Silpada is extended through the end of November - Tara, feel free to update the blog if you haven't already! Amy told me that she pulled in a few orders from a 4H event she did, too; those will count toward our cause. :cool1:

Did a holiday fair yesterday and when I didn't have something the person was looking for I have them my card with the website and wrote GKTW on the card and told them to click on the link when ordering! Hoping to get a few orders from that. They were pleased to hear about the fundraiser.

Hey vendors,

Do any of your companies do Black Friday deals? My company does and I hope to get it out to people.

I got the commission check from the purchases already made from the fundraiser: $32 to start! Like, I said it's a start!

I'll send Tara a PM and ask her to add to my link about the Black Friday deals!

TTFN :tigger:

Hosted my book club tonight and had definite interest for the fundraiser! And before I sobered up, I placed a rather large order with Silpada. I might faint at the amount in the morning, but it's a great cause... :)

So- how did we do?
Did the vendors all get enough orders to reach our goal?

Any amount will be terrific of course. I am just curious to know how the Fair did!

I hope others did better than I did. Not a single order :(

One inquiry, but no orders. :(

No orders here for Mia Bella candles either. But, I am sure we will all find other ways to continue to donate to GKTW!

Merry Christmas!

Just sent my donation in to GKTW. It wasn't nearly as much as I'd have liked (only $38 for Pampered Chef), but as Annabelle said, I know we'll all find ways to contribute more!

Hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2012!
