Boulder, CO, August 05, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- With the school year rapidly approaching, parents are bracing for rigorous and sometimes stressful fundraising campaigns for their child’s sports teams, bands, and clubs. Boulder mom/designer/ entrepreneur Kay Magnie McLellan has come up with a clever way to fight the fundraising blues in style with her line of whiteboards from her brand Orderly Chic. “As a mom, I feel great about using my advertising budget to support good causes,” McLellan says. "When I designed the program I thought about the things that make us (parents) cringe: collecting money, delivering whatever was purchased, and selling a smaller version for an inflated cost; with Giveback Week, 15% of the purchase cost goes back to the cause automatically, relatives from all over the country can participate, and everyone can see that the product is being sold at retail cost."
Starting July 25th Orderly Chic will be launching “The Giveback Giveaway” where lucky winners can walk away with $1,000 in merchandise to help raise funds for the cause of their choice. Orderly Chic’s one-of-a-kind message boards help brighten up any locker, refrigerator or office space with their sleek design, making it an easy sell for families craving a little organization. “Moms have told me that they like the fact that they'd be offering something practical and stylish, something they'd buy for a gift themselves,” McLellan says. Another bonus to Giveback Week? McLellan promises the program isn’t filled with lots of legwork or additional effort. "As a busy mom and entrepreneur myself, I want this process to be as easy as possible for both the beneficiaries and their supporters. Just fill out the simple online form with a few questions about the cause, team, or organization you are fundraising for; if your cause wins, you'll receive 100 Note Boards (a $1000 value) to sell and your cause keeps all the proceeds. To increase your chances, have your friends vote for your cause. Giveback Week participants are encouraged to use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter in order to stir up more support for their cause. The contest hopes to breathe new life into the occasionally daunting task of grassroots fundraising while introducing shoppers to a line of must-have organizational products."
Orderly Chic is the brainchild of industrial designer Kay Magnie McLellan, who was inspired to create a line of products that eased the stress and pain of daily life after she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2001. Orderly Chic products are available at Amazon.com. For more information on Orderly Chic and the Giveback Week giveaway, please contact Kay Magnie McLellan at 888.492.8235 or email@example.com.
