Need to Raise Funds? Try Teespring!

Hey Neighbors,

Here is a really neat site, I want to share with you!  It is called Teespring.  It is sort of funny that I am getting to do this because just recently we have been discussing ways for my 12 year old daughter to raise funds for music school.  She has really been looking for ways to make extra money, even going so far as ironing her brothers dress shirts for work and cleaning their bedroom.  They are actually paying her!  Now, we are discussing trying Teespring.

Anyway, Teespring is a really neat site where you can design a t-shirt and then sell them to raise funds.  The best part is, you don't have to put anything out up front.  You use their online designer where you can add text and art.  Once your design is completed to your satisfaction, you get to choose the type of shirt.  They have basic t-shirts, tanks, hoodies and long sleeve to choose from.  You can even pick your color.  After this is completed, they will show you a base price for the t-shirt and you move on to the next step.

Here is where you decide how many you need to sell to reach your goal.  Then you set up your campaign.  You need to title your campaign, give a description of what your campaign is about, maybe include your goals, etc.  You will be able to determine the length of your campaign, from 7 to 21 days.  If you do not reach your goal, the t-shirts do not sell, so there is no loss.  If you reach your goal before the ending date you can opt to continue running the goal and going above your set amount.

For your campaign you will receive your own URL to send people to so they can order.  You can share with your friends and family through tweets, a Facebook post, email, however you want to share your campaign.  The buyers do have a shipping charge for having them delivered directly to them, or you can give the option of having them delivered to you for pickup.

How simple is this!  Any of my neighbors trying to raise funds?  Do you belong to a group that is trying to raise funds?  Take a minute to check out Teespring and see what they have to offer.  Maybe use their designer and try designing your own shirt to see just how easy it is.
