Chrome Buffalo...

I have a super fun fundraiser to share with you all today, it's called Chrome Buffalo, first check out their video, then we'll share the details...

So cool right? I know when we were starting our adoptoin fundraising I really wanted to sell shirts, which we totally did but I wanted a super cool looking shirt, and well-I'm just not that savvy so I would have LOVED to pick a pre-done design, and you get $11.00 of every shirt you sell for your adoption (or whatever you're fundraising for) so cool right? So here are some of the FAQ...

What is Chrome Buffalo?
"Chrome Buffalo™ is an online crowdfunding platform utilizing the concept of individual Drives. And since we’re defining here, a Drive is our fancy word for campaign - an united effort on the Chrome Buffalo platform directed towards the goal of raising funds for your specific cause. Each shirt sold raises $11 for your cause! Buffalo Up!"

Who is it for?
"we're talking about anyone who needs to raise funds for a specific cause. That means organizations, adoptive families, schools, sports teams, faith groups, families with medical expenses, bands, voluntourists, youth groups, et al. We won't waste your time, but you get the picture! With the Chrome Buffalo™ platform, hundreds of individuals or organizations can run Drives for their specific causes simultaneously."

"Because there is a need! There are millions of people out there who have a need to fundraise for their cause and quite frankly, gone are the days of soliciting funds through door-to-door sales or letter-writing campaigns. Honestly? Who needs more wrapping paper, breakfast breads, chocolate bars, or tubs of cookie dough? That all goes straight to our luv handles or the garbage. But something wearable (and with unlimited use) that supports a family member, a friend, a coworker, a neighbor, or someone across the globe? Now that’s worth $22!"

How does it work?
"Because if you are anything like us, we know you are busy and pulled in thousand directions so we’ve tried to make it as simple as possible:
  1. Create a log-in with
  2. Submit your ‘Important Info’ (so we can get you your funds after the Drive ends)
  3. Choose a T-shirt design, set a funding goal, and submit a Drive by uploading your photo, story, video, and a personalized note to go on all your Backer’s shipping receipts.
  4. Pending approval by Chrome Buffalo, you will be sent an activation code for your Drive – simply activate your Drive on your desired start date and your 10-day Drive is launched!
  5. Send people to your Drive and watch your cause’s dollar amount rise, remember, the more you sell, the more you make!
  6. Within 10-days after your Drive ends, Chrome Buffalo will fulfill your orders and send your dough through Paypal!"
When can we start?
"Couldn't leave out the last W, but honestly we don't have much to say other than: "There's no time like the present - start your Drive today!"

Ok, so I think this is super cool! And such a great fundraising idea, we're going to do one to raise money for our high school student's missions trip to Ecuador this spring (my hubs is a youth pastor) and I'm so excited! I don't know about you, but my closet is quickly becoming full of adoption shirts, missions shirts, project hopeful shirts, you name it! I love shopping for a cause and can't wait to put YOUR shirts in my closet! So, who's gonna sign up?!
