We put the FUN back in fundraising

Our company, Scent-Sations, Inc., has been helping hundreds of organizations conduct thousands of successful fundraisers since 2002. There are two reasons why we've done so many:

1) The consumer is asking for our product.
We have a high quality gourmet candle that you can only purchase through an independent distributor or a fundraiser. Most of our fundraisers are from repeat business because the consumer asks the organizations to run the same fundraiser over and over again. They want our products and cannot get them anywhere else!

2) The organizations make great money!
On average, you'll make between $4.00 and $7.00 per candle. However, EVERY situation is different! You must figure out all your costs PRIOR to settling on a price for the product. For example, let’s say your cost for a candle (shipping included) is $14.95. You can sell the candles for anything you want, but our suggested retail price (MSRP) is $19.95. If you choose to sell the candle for the MSRP, at a cost of $14.95 to your organization, you will make $5.00 per candle. However, you can choose to sell the candles for $21.00 ea, you will make $6.05 per candle – the choice is strictly up to your organization to decide on a selling price.

As an example, if you wanted to raise $1,000.00 and had 25 people who would be selling, you would simply figure out what each person needs to sell at a given profit amount. In this example with 25 people that need to raise $1,000.00, each person would need to raise $40.00 to meet that goal ($1,000.00 divided by 25 people = $40.00).

If you sell the candles at the MSRP of $19.95, and the candles cost you $14.95, then each candle sold would represent $5.00 in profit. At that profit amount per candle and with each person responsible for $40 in profit, each participant would only have to sell 8 candles ($40.00 divided by $5.00 = 8 candles) – a VERY realistic number! However, if you sell the candles for $21.00, your profit per candle goes up to $6.05, and each person only has to sell 7.
I will supply all the materials you will need including order forms and a master order sheet, and it won't cost you a dime in start up costs. Plus, you keep your profits up front! Turn around time is approximately 2 weeks, or less, from the time I receive your master order form, along with payment, until delivery.

I'm simply offering you an avenue for a fundraiser. Whether it's a week, a month, 6 months, or a year, please keep me in mind.
