Winter Wonderland - Simple Affordable Christmas Fundraiser Idea

New! Our 2019 Winter Wonderland brochure is a great choice for the holiday season!

"Hi Deb! 

 

I can't believe we are $40.00 away from 10,000.00!!!!  Too cool!  The kids did a great job this year!  Starting early was key, as well as the offering on the wax melts! I'm so surprised how well those sold!  I'm hoping we get a few stragglers on Monday! I'd love to see a $5,000 profit. Thank you for a great sheet of product!" 

 

Craig, Vocal Director

Deb, 

 

Oh, my gosh!!  We just closed our fundraiser and our cheerleaders have collected over $12,000 so far and we still have late orders coming in!  I'm so excited! I'll let you know when we are all done.

Thank you so much for a great fundraiser. I never expected we'd sell so many candles and we've sold more more wax melts than I ever expected. We are so glad we chose LaTeeDa!  Thank you Deb!

 

Michelle, Cheer Coach

After reviewing the invoice you can pay by mailing us a school/business check or money order along with a copy of your invoice.  We request payment be made as quickly as possible and must be received before your packed order can be shipped. 

 

Once shipped, we will send you an email with a link to track your shipment.

 

Note: We recommend starting your sales asap and to allow sufficient time for mailing the order forms, 2-3 weeks for the order to be shipped and a few days for UPS to deliver your order.
