Computers & the Classroom (A hint to Reno School Fundraisers)

Many adults, when growing up, didn’t have much education in the terms of computers. But, today’s kids, not only desire to learn computers and really enjoy it, but in today’s society, they have to know it to get many good jobs out there. Not to mention well into the future.

Let’s hope your school is able to provide computers for kids. Even if it’s not, or if you’re in dire need of new systems, It’s My Community Store.com can help with your Reno School Fundraiser!

This is a great learning experience for a school’s students and ability to raise funds for a new tech lab for them. You can even get computer supplies from It’s My Community Store at reduced prices and get up to 10% donated back to your school!

Fundraising Safety Tips


To some it’s a very scary world out there, especially to concerned parents. When a school asks children to step in to do field trip fundraising, sports team fundraising, and other Reno school fundraising, it can be nerve racking to set the kids out to sell something to strangers.

Below are a few Reno fundraising ideas to keep your children safe.

  • For Reno School Fundraisers, notify the school admin office so they are aware. They may also offer some advice, safety tips, or some Reno fundraiser ideas
  • Door-to-door sales is outdated and an unsafe practice. Though it seems like a good idea to get kids out there to make sales, it’s dangerous to do this in todays world. Instead, as parents, be involved, make phone calls, emails, or use social networking. Also, only contact friends, family, and people you know are safe.
  • Be involved, use any fundraising ideas as a learning tool to teach safety and etiquette, as well as how to present themselves. It’s My Community Store makes it easy to do Online Fundraising, but the Internet makes it easy for you kids to get in trouble, so always be with your child to take the wheel and lead a safe trip.
  • Be the banker! Several times in fundraising history, children have gotten in trouble by money getting lost. Sometimes no one is to blame, other times kids don’t know better. It’s My Community Store takes care of money handling and distribution, so with us this isn’t really a concern. But, it is advice for any kind of fundraising idea.
  • Communication is key. Stay in touch with people, let them know what’s going on. Make it clear how the fundraiser works, what it’s for, etc. Don’t rely on kids to give a message to anyone, they forget, get the message wrong, or don’t understand themselves what they are saying. Phone calls, emails, bulletins, flyers, announcements (Online is best) all can help the terms of safety.

It’s My Community Store encourages the safety of children when fundraising, but also for them to have fun!

Be the UNITY in Your CommUNITY

Right now at It’s My Community Store, we are hosting a fundraiser with our partner, ifoster.org.

Be the UNITY in Your CommUNITY

Mission:

We believe that small sacrifices, when made by many can have a big impact on a community. When people UNITE anything is possible.

Goal:

To raise $200,000 across four geographical areas ($50,000 for each area) through education, awareness and small donations. This money will be used to create back-to-school kits for underprivileged youths in the Washoe County, NV, Treasure Valley, ID, Sacramento, CA and Central Valley, CA areas.

Our Fundraising Plan:

  • Be the Unity in your Community will run from April 15, 2012 through July 15, 2012
  • We have set up a donation platform through our website, Itsmycommunitystore.com and social media platforms. Donations will be $5, $10, $25, or other. If you would like to donate by check please send directly to It’s My Community Store or ifoster and note that it is for the Unity Campaign.
  • All of the money raised (minus credit card processing fees) will be used to create back-to-school supply kits for vulnerable children in the respective areas. For example, if the Treasure Valley area raises $50,000 they will receive the retail value of $50,000 in school supplies. If Northern Nevada raises $70,000 they will receive the retail value of $70,000 in school supplies.
  • The school supplies will be purchased from It’s My Community Store. It’s My Community Store will build relevant age appropriate back-to-school kits with supplies that are recommended by the local school districts. These kits will be delivered to iFoster and the appropriate schools and agencies in August 2012. iFoster will work with the agencies and schools in each area to assure proper delivery to the children.
  • It’s My Community Store will be donating an additional 10 percent of the total amount raised to the area that raises the most funds. This donation will be used to build additional school kits for that area.

About Our Partner:

iFoster

iFoster helps raise our most vulnerable children. Their programs provide life changing resources for at-risk youth, helping guide them to becoming independent successful adults.

iFoster’s community supports over 1,000, 000 children across 50 states. Members include thousands of formal and informal foster care families, low income families, emancipated youth along with other nonprofits and government departments in 26 states.

The Issue:

Over 4,000,000 children are being raised outside of their biological homes. More than 800,000 a year are removed from their homes due to abuse, violence or neglect and are placed in formal foster care. The foster care system is under-funded and stretched beyond capacity. An additional 3,000,000 live outside of formal foster care with relatives, often with little support.

We believe that a simple back-to-school kit can be the start of a successful academic year for these children.

The outcome for these children is dismal:

  • 46% drop out of high school or fail to get GED by 19
  • 50% will become homeless
  • 50% will be unemployed
  • 25% will be incarcerated
  • 3% will earn their bachelor’s degree
