  • Cost: Each item is no more than $16.00.
  • Pick up: The items will be shipped to the school and we ask that parents pick them up. That date will be announced once we receive all the orders in.
  • Prizes: for every three items sold, students will receive a lanyard with an emoji charm…and then can add on to their charms…the more you sell the more you collect!
  • Grand prizes: Top seller wins must sell 20 items and they win $50.00 cash, or sell 100 items and win $100 cash!!!
  • Payment: Please have any checks and money orders made out to Tapp Middle school PTSA

Raise Craze Fundraiser to help our community!

As parents, we figured there had to be a better way to fundraise. We – not to mention our families, friends and neighbors! – were tired of cookie dough, gift wrap and discount cards.  Too much work selling low quality products for too little money.

Likewise, we were tired of the popular fun run in our area that had our kids running in circles while the fundraising company walked away with nearly half of the money raised.  The pressure exerted on the kids was extreme, with cheap plastic toys on the line every day based on how much they raised.

So we set out to create a fundraising alternative, one that could create a meaningful experience for our children while putting more money into the hands of the organization raising it.

Our answer is Raise Craze – fundraising through kindness!

With Raise Craze, participants ask friends and family for donations via their personal donation website.
Then, as a way of thanking their donors, they go out and pay it forward in their community by serving others.
