Two Brooklyn parents–daunted by the amount of money their schools
always needed (but couldn’t seem to raise)–realized that if they sold
an item everyone wanted, money could be raised with a lot less fuss. So
they developed their Portrait Press
fundraising kit, wherein each class creates artwork for a tea towel,
pillowcase, or tote bag.
The result is a cool keepsake representing the
entire class, so every family has the incentive to buy a couple, and voila–money for the
school. Meanwhile, no one ends up with another neglected candle.
better, Portrait Press uses part of their proceeds towards a grant that
allows disadvantaged schools to develop their arts education programs.
It’s money for your school, money for a great cause, and a great
keepsake. Sign me up. -Mir
