3 Ways You Can Fundraise To Bring Inchy to Your School
Inchy the Bookworm is the lovable little character that represents good reading habits and positive behavior. When we first launched the book vending machine, we knew we would make a splash with a few educators. We had no idea how many people all over the country would fall in love with the idea of a book vending machine! There are a lot of ways to inspire kids, but vending machines just seem to have a magic about them.
We've seen so many different ways that schools have purchased a book vending machine, but understanding it could seem a bit intimidating to some...we figured we could share a few ideas on how some communities have funded their machine! We have a thorough understanding of the buying cycle, as we've helped over 1,000 schools make this happen. We can answer any questions you have about fundraising via phone or email! Just ask! There probably isn't a situation we haven't seen! We love working to make this happen so we can work with you.. but it's really inspiring to see the different communities come together to raise money..
Here's 3 Ways You Can Fund Your Book Vending Machine!
Read A Thon
We've seen some schools have what they call a "Read-a-thon" to help fundraise, which is CLEARLY a perfect way to start the Inchy fun! Without a dollar invested you could start raising awareness of the Inchy PBIS reward system by holding a readathon to donate books, funds, or whatever you want! We've seen some schools raise enough money to fund the whole machine!
If you're a teacher or educator.. you've probably heard of Donors Choose. Heck, maybe that's even how you found out about the Inchy Book Vending Machine! The organization does an awesome job of helping people raise the money needed to get important items and supplies for their school or classroom. If you've helped someone buy a kricket labeler, you've been on donors choose! We've seen many machines go out fully funded with the use of Donors Choose!
We've seen local donors go completely incognito and donate the funds silently, we've seen churches and parish communities help out.. We've even seen Clifford the Big Red Dog at a few events!
