Fundraise with Simply Love Products

Posted on 05 March 2012 by Kari Gibson

What Makes Simply Love Fundraising Kit So Unique?

After answering hundreds of emails on My Crazy Adoption Blog about fundraising for adoption, three years ago, I created the Simply Love Kit to help adoptive families raise their costs. Now, anyone can use the Kit for fundraising needs. The products will create buzz and momentum for your fundraising by involving your friends, workplace, youth group, family, and church.  It is proven to raise hundreds and even thousands of dollars. We offer 24 exclusive country shapes and 15 unique designs! {Updated} Simply Love is featured in two documentary films and showing up all over the world! Films: Spreading Hope and Man Up and Go The Movie.

What is Simply Love?

To bless women & orphans heart, soul, mind, & strength by partnering with bloggers, adoptive families, and organizations to be a part of the solution of living James 1:27 by trusting steadily in God, hoping unswervingly, & loving extravagantly.

We have developed a program that allows you to purchase exclusive products from our Simply Love collection at wholesale prices. In turn, you can sell the products at full retail price with 100% of profits being used to raise your costs.

Please read the program overview information below and follow the 3 simple steps to join my fundraising program.

If you have any questions, you can email me for more details.

What is Simply Love Kit?

Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is LOVE. (1Cor. 13:13)  When we adopted our beautiful, Zoie Senait from Ethiopia three years ago, we created a special tee shirt to raise our adoption costs.  Well, my fundraiser was a total disaster and failed miserably.  We ended up with boxes of unsold tees stacked in our garage.  I felt discouraged, stressed, and uncertain how to raise money for our adoption. I was determined to help other families learn from my mistakes how to FUNdraise successfully!  The past three years, I have had the honor of supporting and helping hundreds of families fundraise for their adoptions using our exclusive designs.  This year, My Crazy Adoption Blog has raised over $60,000 for missions projects and caring for orphans with Simply Love products.  God had a different plan for Simply Love and now it’s my gift to you.

I want to help eliminate any additional stress during your adoption process and fundraising projects.  Therefore, I have done all the groundwork for you!  My Simply Love designs were created by a gifted graphic artist with layers of artwork that are beautifully printed on shirts and gear available! All you have to do is sell your products!  There is no middle man, so you are in the driver’s seat customizing the program to best meet your fundraising needs.

The Simply Love Kit includes:

  • 15 exclusive graphic designs!
  • 23 Country shapes to pick- USA, China, Africa, Nepal, Haiti, Russia, India, South Korea, Kazakhstan, Philippians, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Congo, Ethiopia, Uganda, Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Mexico, Sierra Leone [and more!]

How do I start selling my Simply Love Gear?

Once you purchase the Simply Love Kit for fundraising, you can begin selling your exclusive products with 3 simple steps!  Your supporters must purchase the products directly from you.  You will keep 100% of profits.  There are several ways to begin the selling process:

  1. Contact the Printing Company and pick your country, products, graphic designs and receive your customized mock ups (photos of your products) to start advertising on your personal blogs, email blasts, giving letters, fliers, and FB.  Start creating a buzz with your family & friends to support your project! (High Resolution photos are available at request.)
  2. Pre-sell the Simply Love gear for $15 more per item than the wholesale price using pictures from the printing company for your specific country.  Collect the full retail price for each item as you take orders. Then you can order exact sizes and quantities from the company at wholesale prices.
  3. Purchase the Simply Love gear outright from the printing company choosing sizes and quantities that you think you can sell (minimum of 25 of the selected product.) Then you start selling your gear for $15 more per item than the wholesale price -  You will be notified by email of any changes or additions to the fundraising items.
