Pencil Bugs become popular fundraisers
Schools, small groups, sports teams, and community organizations earn money with Pencil Bugs fundraisers.
By: Nancy O'Neill-Pencil Bugs Plus
Year after year, schools and groups seem to sell the same products for their fundraising efforts. 12-year-
Pencil Bugs make great little gifts for people of all ages and are easy to sell because they are unique. They are “made by a kid but not just for kids.” Customers will be delighted to see something other than magazines, candles, or wrapping paper.
Pencil Bugs come in eight bold colors on top a #2 pencil, each with a Certificate of Authenticity that gives their name, birth date, care and training instructions. One of the unique features of a Pencil Bug is that it can be easily removed from the pencil to use the eraser or slip the Bug on a pen, crayon, marker, or even another pencil.
Pencil Bugs fundraisers are a win-win-win event. Students can earn fun prizes, 40% of the sales goes to the school or organization, and O’Neill donates to help kids at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, CA.
O’Neill enjoys speaking to schools and community organizations and encouraging other kids to become entrepreneurs. His best advice: “Give your ideas a try. You never know what might happen. It could be the next big thing.”
Original Pencil Bugs can be found on his website (http://www.pencilbugs.com) and related products and unique gifts can be purchased at the Pencil Bugs Cafe Press online store (http://www.cafepress.com/
