Raise Money for your Pelotonia Ride
Posted on June 13 2018
Huntington, Inc. created a custom candle to sell and raise money for their Peloton
If you live in Columbus, Ohio, then it’s very likely that either you or someone you know is participating in Pelotonia this August. If you aren’t familiar, Pelotonia was founded in 2008 as a grassroots bike tour and has since grown to raise more than $157 million, with 100% of every rider dollar raised going directly to cancer research. But that money doesn’t raise itself! While the high fundraising requirements for each rider can feel a bit daunting, we at The Candle Lab can help get you a little closer to your goal - and without much effort on your part. After all, you’ll need to save your energy for the bike ride!
Our Dollars & Scents fundraising programs are an easy, effective, and fun way to raise money. Your friends and family pour or buy a candle they will love, and you raise money for your Pelotonia ride. Smells like a win-win! We offer three distinct fundraising programs to suit your needs:
In-store: Our most popular fundraising method, in-store Dollars & Scents fundraisers are about as easy as it gets! Pick a day, pick a store, and 20% of sales will go directly to your organization. All you have to do is rally your supporters to pour a candle or buy one off the shelf that day. This is a great option for individual riders looking for a creative way to reach their goal! Learn more about in-store fundraisers here.
Traditional: The Girl Scouts still sell their cookies for a reason, and it’s not just because they taste good! Traditional Dollars & Scents fundraisers are structured the same way - you take orders and money for candles, we pour, and you distribute them and donate the difference. Learn more about traditional fundraisers here.
Scent your Organization: For those looking to make a lasting impression, Scenting your Organization is a unique and effective way of raising money and your brand at the same time. Our Wholesale team will work with you to create a fully customized and personalized candle that you can sell to your supporters, donating the profits. Scenting your Organization is a great option for large Pelotons, especially corporate groups. For example, a Peloton at Huntington Bank created the candles above to sell and raise money.
