The Keepsake that Keeps on Giving: Tea Towel Fundraising Initiative
Raise money for your school, class, play group or community group with a brand new fundraising concept designed to create lasting memories of your little ones. Kids can get creative and have their artwork imprinted on a cotton Tea Towel that will be treasured forever, at the same time as raising funds for a good cause.
Perfect as an end of year memory, or Graduation Gift, for every Tea Towel purchased across the school, grade, class or group, a portion is donated back to the school or a nominated charity. The organizer can choose to raise money for a classroom item, raise general funds for the school or donate to a good cause.
Each Tea Towel can feature up to 250 self-portraits or handprints/footprints for tiny ones. These are all positioned together on a quality 100% cotton Tea Towel and will become a cherished memory for kids, parents, grandparents and Aunts/Uncles for years to come.
Developed by Sai Kung educator and entrepreneur, Angela Comer-Lam, the novel concept means that schools and community groups can receive upwards of HKD 50 in fundraising, per Tea Towel, while the children have great fun producing the artwork and families are left with a piece of work which is guaranteed to be treasured forever.
Interested schools, groups or parents, can visit www.eek.com.hk for simple step-by-step instructions on how to develop a fundraising Tea Towel. Cost prices for the Tea Towels start at HKD 45 per item, based on a one colour print, but organisers can choose to increase the sell price e.g. HKD 100+, per item, in order to raise funds for donations or a class/school project. Delivery is usually 4 weeks from receipt of order.
