Hey it's Dan, as a parent of a 15 year old multi-sport athlete I always struggled with fundraising. I don't know if you can relate but I always felt uncomfortable asking friends and family to purchase frozen pizzas and soggy subs that I knew would taste bad. I didn't like asking people to purchase raffle tickets for items they didn't want or care about, let alone all the other stuff we sold just to raise funds! However, I knew we needed to do it and sometimes I just ended up digging into my pocket and buying all the stuff myself.
Jeff and I often talked about all the costs associated with running a successful organization and making it a great experience for the kids. We knew no matter how much people hated selling stuff they would do it anyway because it had to be done. It's not just the youth organizations it's at the high school and college level too!
After talking with Jeff, his business partner and friend, they knew there had to be a better solution for youth organizations to raise funds and All-Star Saver was created.
