Better Fundraising this Holiday with Lulu

Lulu.com wants to help small businesses and non-profit organizations in our home state of North Carolina raise more funds this holiday season, just by making a free calendar. We’re even throwing in a $1,000 cash bonus to the organization that sells the most calendars between Oct. 5th and Dec. 31st. We’re also including participating organizations in Lulu’s holiday marketing and publicity. It’s simple, too.

To participate:

  • Any small business or non-profit in North Carolina can create an account on Lulu, then a calendar project at no cost.
  • Add your favorite pics to the online calendar template. Drag and drop, and then publish your calendar.
  • Once done, just email fundraising@lulu.com with a link to your project. That’s it.

Your new calendar is a fun way to engage your fans and supporters and it is free to create. A local food truck could make a calendar of their truck outside different places around town. Or a restaurant could create a calendar with recipes and pics of their favorite dishes. The options are endless.

Lulu will include participating local businesses and non-profits in the following marketing as well:

  • Regular social networking blasts to Lulu fans and followers
  • Direct email campaigns
  • Lulu fundraising marketing and PR campaigns

Start your project today and spread some extra cheer this holiday. We can only feature you if we know about your project so please email a link to your calendar to fundraising@lulu.com by the first week of October.

  1. Fundraising is a dramatic task for me. You have to deal with people with silly attitudes sometimes. Once i run a fundraising campaign in my college and all of my seniors used to laugh at me because the money i was collecting was going for a charity working on homeless kids. But fundraising isn’t a bad thing in my opinion.

  2. I agree, people’s attitudes towards fundraising are shocking sometimes, but I tend not to let this bother me any more, and will always do what I can regardless of what people think. It’s always nice to hear celebs getting involved too.

    Calendars now!

  4. This is a wonderful idea to raise funds and it timing is perfect for the next year. Everyone needs a new calendar and making a personalized one would be great Advertisement for your business. THough, I would like to suggest, that when making fundraising activities, try to be more specific of the purpose and where the funds will go, instead of just saying to help small business and NGO. people will be able to relate more and might even be encourage to donate/buy if they know where the funds will be used.
