Question about charities...

I'm thinking I read this somewhere, but I'm just not sure. If we hold a HWC fundraiser, can we donate the money to whatever charity we choose or does it have to be the American Cancer Society? Just curious. My Grandmother passed away about a year and a half ago to lung cancer and I would like to donate the money raised as well as my commission to the Lung Cancer Alliance.

You can do the fundraiser for whatever charity you want. My mother passed away last summer and mine will go to kidney cancer research.

The May HWC products provide a $1 donation per item sold to Breast Cancer education and research and that can not be changed but the fundraiser show sales donation can go to any cause.

Beth is right. You can hold the fundraiser for whatever organization you want BUT if you click the box on the Show screen for HWC then Pampered Chef will automatically send the check to HWC. So, I'd just put in the name of the organization and promote it as a fundraiser for the Lung Cancer Alliance and not as a HWC fundraiser.

Thanks for pointing out about the box for HWC fundraisers - I had forgotten about that!

One more question...

OK, so if I put the correct organization in - not the HWC - can the guests still order the HWC products since they are the guest special?
