    I did a fundraiser for my son's daycare and I picked up the order forms & money from the Chairperson tonight. I've been sitting here since 7:00 entering orders!! LOL

    Drumroll please........

    Total so far...... $993.75!!! :D

    I know it'll go over $1000. If not, I'll add something myself to make it go over $1000! LOL She still has 3 or 4 more parents to check with, so I'm not too worried.

    I'm so PUMPED!!! I was really worried this one wouldn't crack $600, but there were a few parents who really worked their humps off to get orders and at least three families brought in orders totalling more thatn $200 each.

    Of course, the owner.....lol....bless her heart, ordered over $100 herself in product! :p Both for personal use and daycare use.

    Just wanted to share my excitement. I called my Director first. OF course she was really excited too. :p

    Way to go Tammi... I just love fundraisers! They're so easy! Now you'll have to share... did you do a kick off show with the little ones, like a kids in the kitchen demo, or did you just have them collect orders?

    Darcy, I didn't really do a demo, but I did set up a display one day to be there as parents picked up the children. No one really seemed interested, so I was really worried I wouldn't have many orders at all!!

    I think the incentives I included really helped this out. I bought a Kid's Apron & Chef's Hat and Cookie Making Set in February before they discontinued them. So my top two salesmen will get one or the other. I also included a drawing for anyone turning in at least 25 products & another for anyone turning in at least 5 orders. I've attached my letter that I created to hand out to parents with the catalog.

    I forgot to mention that I am a parent of one of the children, so I don't know if that made a difference or not. A few of them knew who I was, but we are new to the area....so many probably didn't realize it. While I was there today a parent came in. I've seen her before, but she never really speaks. She heard me and Rhonda talking and said, "Oh, your the Pampered Chef Lady?" Like she was shocked. I said, "Yep." She proceeded to tell me how she LOVES Pampered Chef. So of course I asked her if she'd like to book a show. She kinda flinched, so I added, it could even be a catalog show and all you would have to do is collect orders and then the daycare would get a booking credit. :D

    So, I'm debating about making phone calls to the people whose number I have gotten off order forms and checks. There were a few who ordered alot and thought maybe I could interest them in a show. But I have major Phone Phobia. It's not that I'm afraid of talking, it's just asking strangers for something over the phone w/o meeting them first.

    What do ya think??
