First time planning a fundraiser with The John Russell Honey Company?
Your Very Flexible, No Risk, Fundraising Solution!
Fundraising can be a monumental and stressful task for those involved in keeping money available for extracurricular activities. There is a lot of pressure on schools and sports teams to “find a way” for outings, tournaments, band trips, or even the necessities of equipment and uniforms.
Parents are bombarded with fundraising appeals and enticing support becomes more challenging for the organizers.
Honey fundraising, Tea and all Natural Beeswax Bath Products have become the new alternative to coupon books, chocolate almonds, bricks of cheese or pizzas as those items can be purchased at the grocery store at a better price. Everyone uses honey, and the movement to chemical free lotions and bath products is on the rise.
Now without a doubt, we produce some of the best unprocessed, unpasteurized, farm-fresh honey you will find in Manitoba and with our careful selection of the new products being offered sourced from Manitoba companies, we are offering some great fundraising ideas.
Our honey is packaged in 12oz hexagonal glass jars with color glossy labels and black lids, and are very popular for gifts in the holiday season. The product line is unique, the packaging is very attractive and the product sells very easily.
For Families that consume more than a little honey, we now have our pure honeys in larger 1 kilogram size available! Comb honey is also offered in 2 sizes for those wanting to sample a special treat from our grandparent’s generation. We are launching our new Pumpkin Spice honey in our flavored line, and are now including Buckwheat into our pure nectar source honey selections. Heritage hand poured Beeswax Candles and Pucks, Bee Pollen, and wooden Honey Dippers round out or new additions to this year’s offerings. We have given the signup sheet a makeover to give better visuals and descriptions to your parents and families that are supporting your cause. There is an 11 inch, and a larger print 14inch size to choose from when photocopying. Both copy and print crisply in black & white or full color, and a new Master Sheet has been developed to help in compiling your organizations orders for easier submissions.
Everyone loves honey.
On toast, tea and in baking.
The Lady of Bath has been hand crafting exquisite bath and body products for decades and it is with great pleasure we are offering two of her finest in our 2016 fundraising package. The honey lotion bar has been developed for John Russell Honey Company along with a Honey Lip Balm uses Manitoba honey, beeswax and The Lady of Bath’s special in house steeped Calendula Olive Oil and other top quality butters to smooth the roughest skin. Honey Glycerin soap is hand made from an old family recipes.
Now on to the most important stuff.
How can we help your organization raise a pile of money?
First off, we are always available to come down with some samples and make a presentation to your committee or group to explain all of this but for a quick overview.
Here’s how our program works:
We provide sign up sheets for you to copy and distribute.
Money is collected immediately, none of your capital is tied up. Your order will be delivered within 10 days if not sooner.
Here’s How We Can Help Your Organization Raise Funds!
We provide sign up/product sheets for your volunteers to pass around to family, friends, co-workers and other supporters of your organization. At a suggested selling price of $6.00 for the honey, tea, lotion bar and $4.00 for lip balm we are providing the product to you cheaper than can be purchased in any store. Money is collected immediately and after a time frame or cutoff date of your choosing (usually two weeks) you tabulate the sheets to form an order.
The order is sent to us and we deliver it to you for distribution to your supporters in about one week’s time, ( plus or minus a day or two depending on the size of the order).
There Is NO Minimum Order Required!!
- Your organization makes a minimum $1.00 per jar/tea/lotion bar for your cause. So if you have 45 students or team members and if each individual sells 12 of any item your fundraising drive will have generated well over $500.00.
There is no minimum commitment or Penalties! And no Cash is required up front!
Zero Risk and Flexible Too!!
- You are invoiced only for what is pre-sold, so you will have collected the money before any payment is due.

Suggested selling price is $6.00 per jar, as we have found it sells the most units and supporters tend to purchase multiples at this cost.
