How the Program Works
Green Capes Lions Club partners with Non Profits to sell calendars full of pictures of future service dogs. Its a simple way to raise funds and help others.
- We build you an eCommerce website and take care of all the finances.
- You share your link with supporters. Sales end Nov 10.
- We ship you calendars for you to distribute, a list of customers and $10 for each $20 calendar sold.
- There is no risk – we only ship what you sell.
We use our profits to help Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides (dogguides.com) with their mission to provide service dogs to Canadians with a medical or physical disability.
Its a win/win/win – your customers get a great calendar, you raise funds for your organization and we raise money for the pups.
Step by Step
You Supply Your Info
Personalize your web page with a brief write-up and 3 to 4 photos about your fundraising goals. We will send you a form to fill out and your site will be up in 2 to 3 days.
We Build & Host Your Club’s eCommerce Page
We will combine your information with an online order form for the 2021 Green Capes Puppy Calendar. Beautiful photos from the 2020 calendar plus a short section on Dog Guides complete the webpage. Click image to view sample page.
Prior to final publication, you will review and approve your webpage. Your key contact will also be provided with a user ID and password to view the sales report at any time.
You Market the Calendars to Your Customers
Now you have a webpage, how do you get the word out? Download our templates for emails, social media posts, and posters – available here on our website. Copy – paste – send!
Your Customer Buys Calendars Online
When the customer enters their order, the system collects their contact information and payment. We can ask for a personal contact to help with distribution – eg students in a school or members of a team.
Credit cards and e-transfers are accepted – transactions are encrypted and processed through Stripe, the same payment processor used by Amazon and Google. We do not store or have access to credit card numbers used.
We Ship All Calendars Sold and Pay you $10 for every calendar sold
During the week of November 16, we will package the total number of calendars ordered and ship via Canada Post to your key contact for delivery by the beginning of December. Your key contact will receive the tracking number by email from Canada Post.
