I’ve participated in my share of fundraisers, so I know just how hard and stressful it can be to raise money.  Last year, my family put on a fundraiser for my Dad, who needed to raise money for a stem cell transplant that wasn’t completely covered by his insurance company.  It took several friends and family members, and a ton of food and prizes to make it all come together, and I remember it being very chaotic.    

Often times, it takes a whole lot of time and energy to put on a fundraiser, and it can leave you feeling completely exhausted in the end. It doesn’t always have to be that way, however. 

Teespring is a great new crowdfunding site, that allows you to design and sell custom apparel.  Anyone can use Teespring to design a shirt, which they can then sell via Facebook, Twitter, or anywhere else they wish to.  The seller keeps ALL of the profits from their sales!  Proceeds can be used for a fundraiser, or for personal use.  

The best thing about Teespring, is that the shirts are not printed or shipped out, until the Seller requests them to be.  That means they pay nothing up front, take no risks, and don’t have to deal with the headache or ordering too many or too few shirts!  

How simple does that sound?  I think this is an excellent way to raise money, and it won’t leave you feeling completely wiped out in the end.  Not to mention, how much fun would it be to design your very own shirt?!
