Summer + Click4Kids.com = Perfect School Fundraising

April 27, 2007

We’re proud to announce a slate of new healthy and safe school fundraising products that are sure to please summer shoppers.

Before you head out on the road or to camp this summer, stop by click4kids.com to pick up a power inverter to keep your DVD player and cell phones running, plus a 250,000 candle power handheld rechargeable spotlight to light up the night!

Best of all, a full 50% of the purchase price of these inexpensive and handy products go right to the school or schools of your choice. Click4Kids.com makes it easy for you to help schools all year round with online fundraising.

Be sure to spread the word to all of your friends and relatives, and enjoy your summer @ click4kids.com!

For some reason, my parents thought it would be cool to wait until I was 17 to go to Disney World. Go ahead. Laugh. (For the record, my young-ish self thought Epcot was pretty boss.)

During that interminable drive down the east coast, our 1986 Dodge Caravan did its best to keep us cool and comfortable. (It did neither.) And to add cosmic insult to injury, there was no such thing as portable DVD players back then. Or laptops. Or… lots of things.

As the sun looms high overhead this summer, you and your kids don’t have to resign yourselves to mile after mile of DVD- and laptop-less driving.

Our 100 Watt Power Inverter slots into any 12V DC power adapter. Whether you’re stuck in a minivan, SUV, car, truck, or (lucky you) RV, or boat, this nifty little device will give you and yours access to instant household power for personal electronics, appliances, TVs, video game systems, and a whole lot more. (Think cell phone, camcorder, MP3 player recharging on the road. Nice.)
Plus, we’ll give $7 to any school you wish — that’s 50%. Cool.

The power plug even adjusts to a 45 degree angle to accommodate smaller spaces. Yes, we’ve thought of everything.

Your inverter is brand-new, and comes with the full manufacturer warranty. This device should also be a critical part of your on-the-road safety kit, to ensure access to critical power no matter what comes your way.

Click4Kids is here to help make you and your family a little healthier, and safer — and help fund your favorite school fundraisers at the same time, all year round, online.

Every inverter you buy will net your school a healthy $7 (50%) – automatically, easily, painlessly. Order today to gets yours in time for your summer adventures.

Why are healthy school fundraisers like Click4Kids important?

November 20, 2006

Students learn more from what we do than from what we say. In the case of healthy school fundraising, it’s important to put our health before fundraising dollars. New companies like Click4Kids.com are here to help schools break an unhealthy habit, while offering a superior fundraising method to kick the junk food and junk products out of our schools and their fundraising campaigns.

But don’t take our word for it! The state of Connecticut has approved Click4Kids.com as an officially healthy fundraising alternative for their schools. Read more from their school administrators:

Benefits of Healthy Fundraising
Promoting a Healthy School Environment

Source: State of Connecticut

Candy, baked goods, soda and other foods with little nutritional value are commonly used for fundraising at school. Schools may make easy money selling these foods, but students pay the price. An environment that constantly provides children with sweets promotes unhealthy habits that can have lifelong impact. As we face a national epidemic of overweight children, many schools are turning to healthy fundraising alternatives.

Healthy Kids Learn Better
Research clearly demonstrates that good nutrition is linked to better behavior and academic performance. To provide the best possible learning environment for children, schools must also provide an environment that supports healthy behaviors.

Provides Consistent Messages
Fundraising with healthy foods and non-food items demonstrates a school commitment to promoting healthy behaviors. It supports the classroom lessons students are learning about health, instead of contradicting them.

Promotes a Healthy School Environment
Students need to receive consistent, reliable health information and ample opportunity to use it. Finding healthy alternatives to fundraising is an important part of providing a healthy school environment.

Consequences of Unhealthy Fundraising

Compromises Classroom Learning
Selling unhealthy food items contradicts nutrition messages taught in the classroom. Schools are designed to teach and model appropriate skills and behaviors. Nutrition principles taught in the classroom are meaningless if they are contradicted by other activities that promote unhealthy choices, like selling candy and other sweets. It’s like saying, “You need to eat healthy foods to feel and do your best, but it is more important for us to make money than for you to be healthy and do well.” Classroom
learning about nutrition remains strictly theoretical if the school environment regularly promotes unhealthy behaviors.

Promotes the Wrong Message
Selling unhealthy foods provides a message that schools care more about making money than student health. We would never think of raising money with anything else that increases student health risks, but food fundraisers are often overlooked. As schools promote healthy lifestyle choices to reduce student health risks and improve learning, school fundraisers must be included.

Contributes to Poor Health
Foods commonly used as fundraisers (like chocolate, candy, soda and baked goods) provide unneeded calories and displace healthier food choices. Skyrocketing obesity rates among children are resulting in serious health consequences, such as increased
incidence of type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

More than 15 percent of children are overweight, a threefold increase from the 1970’s. (1) At 400,000 deaths per year, poor eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle are fast becoming the leading cause of death in the U.S., just behind smoking at 435,000 deaths per year. (2)

Click4Kids.com: The safe, easy way to raise funds for K-12 schools!

July 13, 2006

Click4Kids.com @ http://www.click4kids.com/ enables schools to build a community of fundraiser supporters who can easily purchase quality products that provide a high, direct commission to their favorite school(s) and their special causes. And unlike many other fundraising options, we believe that once money is raised, it should get to schools quickly.

The http://www.click4kids.com/ website is simple, well-designed, secure, and geared specifically to helping schools use the power of ecommerce to raise much-needed funds for educational projects. It’s truly all we do.

Other online fundraising sites offer much lower returns on the dollar, and make it very difficult to track and verify that funds raised online actually make it into the hands of schools. We offer real-time online stats so you can track your fundraising totals, and guarantee quick turnaround to get the money to your school and the individuals involved in your fundraising projects.

Plus, Click4Kids.com was created, and is run by, a small dedicated team of professionals, each drawing upon their personal expertise in K-12 education, business, Web site development, and accounting. We started Click4Kids.com as a small company to help keep kids safe, yet allow schools to earn serious money to fund their needs. We keep a very small percentage of each sale to pay for our website and the products themselves, along with a modest amount to keep the company strong and functional. We’re here to keep our costs down and your percentages high!
