As you know it’s that time of the school year again when our children bring home their school fundraisers. Please don’t misunderstand me when I say, UGH!! Hey I’m 100% for the schools and know they can use every penny they can get and I’m aware these fundraisers do bring in some funds but my opinion is some of the stuff they send home for the kids to sell don’t really benefit them. For example, the schools have made wonderful healthy changes for the students by cutting junk foods and adding healthy selections to the menus, then they send home these fundraisers with stuff to sell like cookie dough, candy bars, and other sorts of junk food.
I know, I get it, this stuff sells fast but I don’t think it’s a healthy choice. The schools do have other fundraising items they send home to sell that are not junk food, but do the children benefit from it? Is it useful to the families? Well have I great news for you, I just recently found out about an awesome school fundraising program that I know your going to love, and now you can get you child’s school involved with,
This is not your ordinary cookie dough, candy bar selling company, stndrd Bags was created with the main objective to give back to schools nationwide. They offer a large selection of quality backpacks, water bottles and lunch boxes that we already buy for our children. With each purchase stndrd gives a portion (15%-30%) of the sales back to your local schools. It’s that simple! Let me tell you their merchandise is mostly brand name and high quality. Some of the brand names include but are not limited to Volcom, Dakine, and Roxy. We received the Rockstar backpack & the Polar water bottle. My grandson loves them!!
The Founder Pete McAfee, working in the action sport and backpack industry for over 25 years, has two children of his own in elementary school. He realized that the school fundraisers are complicated and provided items to sell that are not useful, or most families really don’t need. He put his many years of knowledge and various skills to work to create stndrd Bags. He has partnered with each one of his stndrd vendors to support the communities and local schools by giving back!
Here’s how it works, when you visit the stndrd Website and select the backpacks, lunch boxes and/or water bottles that you need, at checkout you are required to select a school. If your schools name does not pop up, then fill in the blank and they will make sure your school of choice receives their portion of the sale. You then proceed to checkout like any other online store. The product ships directly to you. If you purchase 50.00 or more your shipping is free. What I think is awesome is that at check out you’ll see exactly what portion is going to your school!!
Yes it’s that simple to raise funds for every school without all the hassle through stndrd. I wish I would have known about stndrd at the beginning of the school year. I know from now on I will be purchasing all my children’s backpacks, lunch boxes & water bottles from them. I recently spoke to the principle of my child’s school about stndrd and you can too!!
