School Aid – FAQ

Fundraising Made Easy

HOW DOES IT WORK?
School Aid’s Disaster Plasters fundraising campaigns are modeled on the well-known chocolate drives. Take home method: School Aid provides the school with Disaster Plaster Packs which contain everything that the kids need to ensure the campaign runs as well as possible. Each fundraising participant takes home a Disaster Plaster carry pack. They then sell the plasters and return the money to the school. A designated person at the school checks and collects the money from the children.

ARE THERE ANY UPFRONT COSTS?
No. All campaigns are run on a sale and return basis.

HOW MUCH SHOULD WE ORDER?
The standard order for schools is one carry pack (15 packets of 50 Disaster Plasters) per family.

CAN WE RETURN UNSOLD ITEMS?
Yes, the Disaster Plaster campaigns are run on a sale and return basis. Returns are accepted, provided Disaster Plaster packets are unopened and are not damaged. Returns will be credited against your account, but you need to inform us of the your returns numbers before the due date of your invoice. You will then need to deliver the returns back to us at your expense.

WHAT DOES EACH TAKE HOME CARRY PACK CONTAIN?
Each Disaster Plaster carry pack includes 15 boxes of plasters, an instruction leaflet and an envelope to hold and return the money.
