hello reader friends.
As you know, I am a La Leche League Leader. (See this post for more info on that.) Every year we are required to pay assessment fees to the international organization to keep our areas going. Being under the international umbrella gives us professional resources and liability insurance. But my area tries not to make the leaders themselves pay these fees, which amount to about $50-80 per leader. We usually fundraise by having a professional seminar. This allows medical personnel to learn (and their employers will pay for it) and for us to keep going. Our goal is not to make the moms who attend our meetings feel obligated to pay for our help, or even to become members of money is tight. We don’t like talking about money.
This year’s seminar didn’t make the amount of money we needed, so we will need more this coming year. One fundraiser idea we had was to sell t-shirts. We are selling them through TeeSpring, so we do not pay overhead on the shirts; we just make money if they sell. There is a minimum of three sales needed for them to print a design. If you, or anyone you know, would like one of the cute shirts (they are breastfeeding related, and only one has to do with LLL), please consider supporting us by purchasing one. Share the site with your friends! It would help us out, and you get a cute shirt. 🙂 These were also designed by me. 😊
