Fundraising is an important component for many successful businesses. The premise of giving back to the community is important – people like to shop with businesses that they know are participating in good causes and community service. Additionally, in the direct sales world, many people join companies for their fundraising mission: whether it be to help women after sexual abuse (Younique), provide jobs for young women in Uganda (SSeko), or a plethora of community service projects (DoTerra). For Color Street, the question quickly arose: how would there be Color Street Fundraising? Thus, the Color Street Foundation was born. Read on to learn how the Color Street Foundation is making a difference through fundraising.
Does Color Street Offer Fundraising Opportunities?
When enquiring about nail bars, people often ask: “I need to raise money for cheerleading trips/my boy scout troop/school supplies/disaster relief/etc. Can we do that through a nail bar?” The official answer would be no, BUT do not take that as the answer! Work with your stylist to ask her if she would be interested in doing a nail bar, and donating a portion of her commissions towards the cause you’re looking to support. Work closely with her to help the party be a success (more sales, more money!) and you will both be winners!
What is the Color Street Foundation?
The Color Street Foundation was founded because Fa Park, the creator of Color Street, wanted to give back. He also heard the many requests from stylists for fundraising opportunities. After being in business for one full year, it was time. Fa Park announced the creation of the foundation, and said “Oh, there’s no money!” He seeded the Color Street Foundation fund with 1 million dollars, to help support the years’ upcoming causes.
What Causes Does the Color Street Foundation Support?
During the Color Street Show Your Colors Convention in Summer 2018, Color Street announced the next years’ worth of causes that would be supported. In addition to donating funds, there would be an exclusive strip created and sold during that month.
While not part of the Color Street Foundation sets, these two sets resulted in donations:
- Breast Cancer Awareness
- Autism Awareness
These strips were part of the official Color Street Foundation exclusive strips:
- September 2018: Childhood Cancer Awareness – buy the strips HERE.
- November 2018: Alzheimers Awareness – buy the strips HERE.
- February 2019: Military and Veterans Appreciation – buy the strips HERE.
- April 2019: Animal Cruelty Prevention and Awareness (I’ve got my fingers crossed for a design with pawprints!)
- May 2019: Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness
$2 from the sale of each of these exclusive strips will go towards foundations selected, with the goal of $100,000 in total donations for each cause.
