Recognizing The Nature Conservancy

28 Jul

2179054732_fb1e5297d2_zThis summer, Popcorn Palace is recognizing amazing charities and fundraising efforts that are making an impact in their communities. This week, we are looking at The Nature Conservancy, an organization that emphasizes pragmatic scientific solutions to answer urgent bio-diverse issues!

The Nature Conservancy started as a small group of scientist with an interest in finding a way to use their ecological research to create positive environmental impact. Forming the Ecologist Union in 1946, they resolved to use their research and work with politicians and businesses to preserve threatened natural areas. The group later changed its name to The Nature Conservancy and grew to become the leader in nature preservation around the world.

Nature conservancy would not be possible without the heroic help of kind donors and passionate volunteers. One such hero was 13-year-old Dylan Bimka-Wintrob from Upstate New York who used his bar mitzvah to raise money to save the rare and elusive spirit bear in British Columbia, Canada. For his bar mitzvah, Dylan organized a presentation to talk about the endangered spirit bear and raised $867 dollars. This donation, along with many others, helped secure 19 million acres to be placed under strict land-use agreements to protect more than five million acres of the Great Bear Rainforest from commercial logging or extractive uses.

The Nature Conservancy’s work ranges from protecting the grasslands of North Australia to the marine parks across the Caribbean. They also guide preservation efforts through the use of intensive scientific research, partnering with indigenous communities, and non-confrontational solutions. They understood the key to land conservation was in using pragmatic science to bring a balance between extracting resources for human use and avoiding disruption within the natural landscape. The overall goal is to ensure the long term survival of all biodiversity on Earth by seeking solutions that will meet the needs of people as well as wildlife and ecosystems.

Effective conservation is achieved through the help of the people who live on those lands. Through The Nature Conservancy, indigenous peoples are positioned as conservation leaders to target urgent threats through securing land tenure and access, supporting indigenous rights and improving governance. For example, in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest, four First Nation’s communities collaborated with The Nature Conservancy to create the Supporting Emerging Aboriginal Stewards (SEAS) Community Initiative, a program that empowers young leaders to be stewards of their land.

Not only does The Nature Conservancy connect with the indigenous peoples, but they also help businesses, governments, and local organizations meet their resource conservation goals. The Nature Conservancy’s Amazon Program helped partner the Brazilian Government with indigenous peoples of the Amazon to create the country’s first ever National Policy on Territorial and Environmental Management of Indigenous Lands (PNGATI).

The Nature Conservancy works with youth to explore learning and volunteer opportunities. Nature.org has an interactive map that allows families and youth groups around the United States plan trips to state natural areas and wildlife sanctuaries. The Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future (LEAF) program was founded in 1995 as an initiative to offer urban youth both career development and a hands-on environmental stewardship experience. Students take part in ecological research, restoration projects, and natural resource management. Since then, the LEAF program has activities in 28 states as well as a legacy of over 1,000 interns.

Next week, we’ll recognize another organization whose work is an inspiration for people to do good for their community. If you have any questions on how to find or start a fundraiser for an organization in need near you, please contact us below!

Recognizing The ASPCA

24 Jul

6461531797_fd5b913bdb_zThis summer, Popcorn Palace will recognize the work of amazing fundraisers and their charities. This week, we are looking at the ASPCA, an organization that stands against animal cruelty and builds support for pets and pet parents!

The Animal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has grown into one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the world with more than a million supporters across the country. Acting on the principle of defending the rights of at-risk animals, they’ve become a fore-front of animal rescue and health services in North America. Their mission is made possible through the involvement of pet parents and animal lovers. One such hero is Annika Glover, who at eleven-years old selflessly chose to help animals in need while battling Medulloblastoma.

Annika Glover suffered from Medulloblastoma, a rare and fast-growing brain tumor that jeopardized her health. She received comfort from the Make-A-Wish foundation with a wish, and despite her medical struggle, Annika used her one wish to donate $7,000 to the Pets Are Worth Saving (P.A.W.S.) animal rescue group in Florence, Alabama. Because of her courage and love for animals, the ASPCA presented Annika with the ASPCA Tommy P. Monahan Kid of the Year. The ASPCA is also happy to report that Annika’s cancer is in remission!

Annika’s love stands as a testament to the compassion that pet parents and friends have for animals.  The ASCPA provides pet parents and friends with an extensive network of knowledge and resources for to help maintain the health of their pets. The organization connects pet parents to low-cost spay or neuter programs around the country, as well as an animal hospital equipped with emergency services in New York City.

In instances of animal cruelty, the ASPCA are first responders. The ASPCA Animal Forensic Services Team works with local law enforcement and other agencies to collect and analyze evidence to give conviction against puppy millers, animal hoarders, and animal fighters. The largest dog fighting raid in U.S. history was run by the ASPCA in 2009, spanning 8 states, 100 arrests, and the seizure of 500 dogs in one day.

Factory farming of animals has been an ongoing battle for the ASPCA, whose practices are cruel and the harm permanent. To curb factory farming and other acts of cruelty, the ASPCA Field Investigation and Response Team assist local law enforcement and shelters with the rescue and medical treatment for those in need. Once the animals are saved and cared for, they are put up for adoption to a loving home.

The ASPCA team relies on the hard work of their volunteers and the kindness of their donors to help them continue their mission in servicing animals. The ASPCA has many programs that allow animal supporters to get involved in raising money to aid animals in need. Such programs include – donating your birthday, starting a memorial campaign, and creating a wedding page. These programs allow your community to get involved in the fundraising process for animals in need.

Next week, we will be highlighting another charity and the great work that they do for the community. If you have any questions on how to find or start a fundraiser for a charity near you, please contact us below!

Series: Honoring Those Who Make a Difference

15 Jul

Popcorn Palace is happy to announce that we are launching a weekly showcase series highlighting organizations that have made a difference! The showcase will be a 5-part series, presenting the remarkable work of non-profit organizations, what they are doing for their communities and the heroes who make it all possible.

Next week, we will showcase the work of the ASPCA – a nationwide organization dedicated to the rescue and treatment of animals and the support of pet parents. The ASPCA works with shelters to provide medical attention and assistance to animals in need. They are also active in pet training and pet care advice for pet parents.

Non-profit organizations empower the people of their communities to do great things for others. One such person is Annika Glover, a courageous eleven-year-old girl who despite suffering from Medulloblastoma sought the help of the Make-A-Wish foundation to gift $7,000 for animal rescue in Florence, Alabama. Annika’s love for animals is an inspiration to the ASPCA and animal lovers who hear her story. In 2014, Annika was awarded the Tommy P. Monahan Kid of the Year Award to honor her bravery.

This weekly series will feature a variety of non-profit organizations and will explore the impact that these charities have on the lives of those in need, as well as fun youth-led projects organized by the groups to help kids and teens get more involved in their communities. Getting youth involved in a project is a great way to teach compassion for others and the power of teamwork. It teaches youth about the needs of their community and the power they posses to make a difference.

Stay tuned for next week’s showcasing of the ASPCA and Annika Glover! We’ll have a new post about another exciting organization and their heroes, along with ways to get involved. See you all next week!

Celebrate Your Independence! With Fireworks Popcorn

2 Jul

On the Fourth of July, Americans celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence with a day of festivities – often centered around fireworks and food!

Popcorn is the perfect snack for your outdoor activities – so why not sweeten up your parades, games, barbecues, and picnics with a delicious and nutritious treat?

This recipe for Fireworks Popcorn isn’t just a great snack for celebrating Independence Day, it also come with a little kick – a surprise popping sensation guaranteed to tickle your tastebuds!

Use Popcorn Palace’s gourmet popcorn as the base for this sweet treat, and you’ll experience an explosion of happiness which will last long after the fireworks have ended – and keep the kids talking about your 4th of July celebration for years to come!

HOW TO MAKE FIREWORKS POPCORN

You’ll need just a few ingredients to get started!

To prepare, line a large baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Follow the directions on the package to heat your white chocolate, stirring frequently to make sure it melts evenly, and does not burn. While the chocolate is heating, pour the popcorn into a large mixing bowl, leaving plenty of room for stirring.

Once the chocolate has melted to a smooth consistency, pour it over the popcorn, using a rubber spatula to toss until the popcorn is evenly coated. Toss in one pack of PopRocks, and stir again. Then, spread your coated popcorn in an even layer on the pre-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle it with your remaining PopRocks, and then place the sheet in the freezer for 2-3 minutes (this will help your chocolate harden faster).

Remove from the freezer, and break into bite-sized chunks. Eat immediately, or store in an airtight container until it’s time for your fireworks! (Please note – PopRocks will have the most popping power when this popcorn is fresh – so prepare it as close to the fun as possible!)

If you want to kick the fun up another notch, let the kids create their own popcorn bags, and decorate with fun red-white-and-blue designs, or 4th of July motifs.

No time for homemade treats? Simply order your gourmet tin from Popcorn Palace, and add some popcorn pizzazz with these DIY printable popcorn cones or these cute 4th of July-themed labels.

5 Steps to Start Fundraising Today

26 Jun

Starting a fundraiser can be an intimidating task. It requires a lot of organization, creativity, resources, and planning to be successful. We’ve narrowed the process down into 5 easy steps that will pop life into your fundraising goals.

Step 1: Determine Your Fundraising Goals

A good place to start is with the end goal in mind. Ask yourself – how much money do I want to raise and how much time do I have to raise it? Raising $2,000 in 5 weeks is easier than raising $5,000 in 2 weeks. Understanding the answers to these two questions will give you the scope needed to organize your fundraising goals.

Step 2: Write a Simple Business Plan

To achieve your goals, you need a plan. Structure the business plan around your target audience. Consider who you’re asking funds from and why your fundraiser matters to them. Make note of your resources – such as time, materials, startup money, and helpers. Understanding your audiences and your resources will help you build the infrastructure needed to achieve your fundraising goals.

Step 3: Pick a Fundraiser

Connecting your target market to your goals makes the fundraiser happen. This is where you determine how you will be raising money. There are three types of fundraisers: Appeal Fundraising, Event Fundraising, and Product Fundraising. All three fundraisers are unique in their method of fundraising.

Appeal Fundraising is most beneficial when your target market is able to make large donations when you reach out to them. The costs of Appeal Fundraising are minimal and fundraising can start immediately. However, Appeal Fundraising can be difficult because you are asking for a donation without an exchange.

Event Fundraising can be a fun opportunity for the entire community. Money can be raised through participation in benefit concerts, walk-a-thons, talent shows, and dinner fundraisers. It’s important to consider the amount of resources needed in an Event Fundraiser. Upfront costs can vary dramatically and the amount of time needed to plan the event can take months.

Product Fundraising, like we do at Popcorn Palace, is the most predictable of the three types of fundraisers. Money is raised from the profits made on the sale of a product. Depending on the company you partner with or the product you are selling, upfront costs and preparation are minimal. We require no up-front costs, and our partners make 50% profit on each item.

Step 4: Make Contact and Start Organizing

After picking the type of fundraiser you want to do, contact organizations that you’d like to partner with for more information. Start organizing your team that will help you with the fundraiser. Gather your resources and start fundraising.

If you’re working with a school or youth organization, we’ve written a blog post containing resources and documents you’ll need to better manage your fundraiser. You can read about it here.

Step 5: Put the Fun in Fundraising

Don’t forget to have fun! Fundraising is a great way to unite a community for a good cause. Make the experience memorable for your community and it’ll bring smiles all around! If you need any help with fundraising ideas or advice, read our blog articles for helpful fundraising tips or contact Popcorn Palace today!

Resources and Documents for Better Popcorn Fundraising

18 Jun

Organizing and managing a successful fundraiser takes time and energy. We’ve collected a list of different documents that might help you along the way.

Permission Slips: If you’re working in a youth organization, making sure everyone is informed and onboard is essential. Have a clear and informative permission slip template that the participating children can take home to their parents. Parents can sign off and have all relevant information. You can also include helpful information for how parents can support their kids and the organization in general.

Fundraising Policies: If you’re an organization that needs to do fundraisers on a regular basis, then you need to draft fundraising policies, which would include best practices for management, accountability, and transparency. Your policies should include everything you’ve learned from your history of fundraising and very detailed information on your organization’s principles, solicitation rules, and use of fundraising funds—just to name a few. You can read through different fundraiser’s policy examples online to help you draft your own.

Direct Mail Fundraising Letter: We recommend that you also write a direct mail fundraising letter. They introduce your campaign and product to your relevant audience. What you write in the letter is really dependent on the type of fundraiser you are doing and who your audience is. We’ve written a more in-depth guide to the direct mail fundraising letter, and you can read more about it here on this blog post.

Posters: Successful fundraisers incorporate energetic and stylish announcements. Create a variety of different posters to post in your organization and in surrounding communities. If you’re doing a school fundraiser, put posters up in the classroom to inspire your students and put posters up throughout the entire school, so everyone knows about the fundraiser! You can also ask local stores, if they’d be willing to put up a poster in their business. Simple marketing can take your fundraisers to new levels!

Record keepers: If you’re doing a product oriented fundraiser, then you’ll definitely have all of your sales sheets. This is necessary to keep track of who orders what, so the right fundraising products can be delivered to the right people. Along with these sales sheets, you can use an overall record keeper to track your entire group’s sales. You can use very clean and practical record keepers (an easy excel spreadsheet can be ideal) or you can use a large, graphic oriented record keepers (like a poster) to inspire your organization with big visuals and interactive possibilities.

Thank you letters: Don’t forget to offer gratitude for everyone that helps make your fundraiser a success. Create thank you letters for the parents, community members, managers, and the participants themselves. Templates can help you, but putting a customized and personal touch to each letter can make them stand out.

What can fundraising teach you? One last thought… if you’re working with students then you can turn fundraising into helpful life lessons. You can create lessons about what fundraisers teach students—from financial lessons to goal setting and marketing. You can also ask your students to create their own fundraising documents about how they feel about the process and what they’ve learned.

Here at Popcorn Palace, we want to help you with all of your fundraising needs. If you want examples of fundraising documents that we send to organizations, please contact us. We’d love to help you on your fundraising journey.

Fundraising in the Summer

11 Jun

June 21 marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere. Summer is famous for kid activities, sunshine, swimming, and BBQs. We’re looking forward to a break from the school year and a little bit of camping. We’re also preparing to help with important fundraising opportunities and activities that happen during summer.

Hot Summer Fundraising Highlights

Summer Fundraising for Sports

Sports are usually divided into sports seasons. What games can we look forward to during summer? You’ll see activity on the baseball field since games started in spring and continue throughout the summer. You can also catch volleyball games at the beach. But by far the most sports activity takes place in the water during summer. Swimming, diving, and sailing benefit from the hot weather.

Summer sports teams can take advantage of their popularity and begin a summer fundraiser to support uniforms, training, travel experience, equipment, and more. Sports are expensive, but important to kids, participants, and fans alike. Youth sports in particular need extra involvement and support, and fundraising can help.

Summer Fundraising for Camps

Many of our favorite childhood memories are from camps we attended during our precious summer months. There are summer camps for a wide variety of interests including adventure, academics, church and sports. They teach kids to be active and creative. They reap important physical and emotional benefits, and sometimes create lifelong friendships.

Summer camps do such fundamental good for children, but they can be very expensive. Some summer camps try to offset expenses with community support. Fundraising for summer camps can provide scholarships for families that don’t have extra money, so more deserving kids can go.

Summer Fundraising for Charities

Summer is also an excellent opportunity for charity organizations to host important activities to raise awareness and money for really valuable causes. So what events should you keep your eye out for?

Many organizations host walkathons and other types of marathons to get the community involved. Some of the most famous are breast cancer walks and runs where breast cancer organizations offer inspiring local events throughout the country. Skin cancer organizations also take the opportunity to raise awareness of the dangers of the summer sun.

Many charity organizations—from healthcare to music centers and cultural organizations—also throw summer galas, inviting people to dress to the nines, mingle with friends, and celebrate important accomplishments.

Take Advantage of the Summer with Effective Fundraising

Summer is a popular time for fundraising because everyone can take advantage of the weather and the outdoors. If you need to plan a fundraiser during the summer, we can help you with plans and effective organization at Popcorn Palace. Please contact us if you have any questions about summer fundraisers. And remember, if you don’t have a fundraiser to organize, we encourage you to support your favorite organizations.

Is Butter Flavored Popcorn Bad For Your Health?

5 Jun

Popcorn has long been a favorite option for healthy snacking, though it has recently been receiving quite a bit of negative news coverage. Recent scrutiny of commercially-used artificial butter flavoring (specifically, a chemical called diacetyl) has kicked up quite a bit of controversy about the health benefits of popcorn.

At Popcorn Palace, we believe your health comes first – and we’d love to shed some light on the subject.

To start, diacetyl is a chemical included in microwave or theatre popcorn – it’s that buttery-yellow substance which gives microwave popcorn it’s distinctive aroma. A byproduct of the fermentation process of butter, beer, and vinegar, diacetyl is also synthetically produced for use by food companies, because of its irresistible flavor and smell.

Better safe, than sorry.

Recent studies have linked diacetyl to lung damage (caused by breathing its vapors) as well as potential brain-related health risks. It is currently unclear whether eating foods containing diacetyl (which is used in both microwave and theatre popcorn, as well as other snack foods and baked goods) might increase the risk of developing brain-related issues such as Alzheimer’s disease.

The concerns are significant enough that companies have already begun removing diacetyl from use. Still, removing diacetyl from microwave and theatre popcorn doesn’t necessarily make it safe – as several substitute ingredients are also suspected to hold negative impact on consumer health.

So, is buttered popcorn still okay to eat?

The short answer is, yes – as long as it is made with real butter, or other natural ingredients, such as those used by Popcorn Palace. Our products contain no artificial additives or flavorings, ever – so you can rest assured that our products are a safe and healthy snacking alternative.

Our delicious gourmet treats are prepared using the finest natural ingredients. We use high-quality popcorn, and celebrate its natural flavor by highlighting it with the best mix-ins – crafting custom flavors with integrity. We preserve the naturally occurring qualities of popcorn (which is high in body-friendly whole grains, fiber, and antioxidants) by producing our popcorn in small batches – so that you can experience this healthy snack in all of its glory!

So, popcorn lovers rejoice! You don’t have to give up this crunchy and satisfying snack. Just dump the artificially-flavored popcorn, just take a look at Popcorn Palace for delicious and healthy popcorn snacks.

Smart Questions for Fundraising Strategy

29 May

With recent cuts to federal and state budgets drastically reducing educational funding, your school’s fundraising efforts are becoming more and more important. The responsibility of generating financial support for school programs and projects is falling to parents, teachers, and volunteers – who often have little to no fundraising experience. Because of this, the creation of a cohesive fundraising strategy is often overlooked.

The following questions are designed to help you analyze your fundraising strategy – so you can devote your time and energy to the activities and efforts which best meet the needs of your educational institution. If your school already has a fundraising plan, these questions can be applied to evaluate its effectiveness, and help you create or strengthen your existing fundraising guidelines.

Why you are raising funds?

Your fundraising efforts should be focused on the problem you hope to resolve, or the needs and opportunities you hope to meet with the funds collected. Raising funds to purchase new playground equipment is great – but the real reason you are raising those funds is to allow children to play safely, and promote their health by encouraging them to exercise. By emphasizing the reasons behind your goals, you’ll help your fundraising team and donors understand your purpose, define how the money raised will be used, and provide a connection between your goals and fundraising efforts.

What values do you share with your donors?

In the example above, your school’s efforts would be supporting the health and safety of students. Your best prospective donors would be those who also hold interest in supporting those efforts – for instance, the parents or grandparents of your students, or a community organization which is focused on teaching kids healthy exercise habits. Ask your fundraising team to brainstorm, and identify any local organizations or individuals known to share the values which define your efforts – and you’ll find yourself connecting with donors who are already inspired to support your cause.

Do your efforts align with your values?

It is essential that your fundraising strategy reflect the values of your goal, or it may be counterproductive. For example, a cake walk to support the purchase of your playground equipment (which aims to promote the healthy habits of students) would be inappropriate – where the sale of healthy snacks, such as those offered in a Popcorn Palace fundraiser, would be perfectly suited to support your efforts. Making sure that your fundraising activities and efforts align with your ultimate goals and values is important to donors – and to the success of your campaign.

What will your fundraiser cost?

A comprehensive fundraising strategy needs to take the cost of fundraising activities into consideration. If your fundraiser is centered around product sales, make sure you are clear on any up-front or out-of-pocket costs before committing. You should also take into consideration additional costs such as posters or flyers, prizes, or awards, when determining your campaign budget, and cost per dollar raised. Revisiting these numbers after your campaign is completed will help you refine your fundraising strategy for future efforts, as well.

Are your fundraising partners operating in their integrity?

Partnering with corporations or other organizations is a great fundraising strategy, and can be an effective way to raise additional support for your campaign. It helps you demonstrate wide support for your efforts, and can help you raise additional awareness about your educational organization’s needs. Still, you should carefully assess any company or organization considered for partnership before beginning your campaign, in order to ensure that their values align with your own, and that they are operating in their integrity. Aligning with a business who’s efforts or practices are in conflict with your goals could be detrimental to your campaign – but a strong partnership with an organization whose values and goals reflect your own can offer an incredible boost, and reinforce your fundraising efforts.

How will this campaign benefit your community?

Whenever possible, explain how the accomplishment of your school’s goals will positively impact your community. When you can help others understand how their contributions directly affect their community on a wider scale, you’ll gain greater support, and pave the way for their willing participation.

While these questions aren’t the only things to consider, you can use them to hone your fundraising strategy, educate your community, and prepare volunteers and students for interacting with potential donors. By focusing on your school’s goals, and the values they support, you’ll allow your donors the opportunity to contribute to your campaign in a way that makes them feel valued and connected.

For more information on how Popcorn Palace can help you launch a fundraising campaign which supports the health and well being of your students, with no out-of-pocket cost – contact our fundraising team, and we’ll help you get started on the path to fundraising success!

Competition vs. Cooperation: Which Gets Better Fundraising Results?

19 May

Are you organizing a fundraiser for kids, and you’re wondering whether to make it a competitive or cooperative fundraiser? You should start by asking yourself which is better for the members involved and which would raise more money. Before you begin your fundraiser, compare the pros and cons of each.

Competition

Many fundraisers are designed to be competitions and with good reason. Some students get inspired and energized trying to outdo each other in school fundraisers – some kids have really competitive spirits.

Using this as a healthy advantage can lead to excellent results with fundraisers. If the kids are not yet at an age where they care about or understand the financial side of things, set other goals they can focus on. For example, choose a number of items each child is expected to sell. Keep a tally with stickers on a decorated poster.

For older kids who do understand the finances, directly setting monetary goals lets them be more involved in the fundraising, and they can track what percentage of the overall fundraiser they’re bringing in by themselves. For further incentive, offer a small prize to the one who raises the most.

You don’t want any angry or hurt feelings between anybody involved, so you have to find a balance of friendly and competitive. If you succeed, you can achieve fantastic results. To make the most of this, try a few of these tips:

  • Regularly meet to compare sales and numbers. Merely knowing there is a number to aim for helps, but having a time to review how each team member is doing keeps everyone on their toes.
  • Make sure to make the goal easily measurable.
  • Keep the end prize something fun but not over the top.
  • Always be positive about everyone’s efforts. If you keep the tone light and friendly, kids will follow with the tone you set.
  • Make sure the focus is always kept on the end goal and what they will be able to be accomplished with the funds.

Cooperation

If you feel your group isn’t well suited for competition, than cooperation is a better option. Cooperation has its advantages. Where competition can foster individual successes, cooperation can teach your group to work with each other to achieve the same goal. You can use this as an opportunity to teach kids about teamwork and sharing successes, and some people just do better in a cooperative environment because it’s friendly and less stressful.

Fundraising is really well suited for cooperation because your members have the same end goal in common: raising money to do something awesome with the funds.

There are multiple choices for how to organize a cooperative fundraiser. You can focus on teamwork and working in groups. Either set teammates early on, so they’re working together in their small groups throughout the fundraiser, or organize teams and consistently change up the members, so it is less likely they will get competitive in their groups.

You can also organize larger group events, so everyone is working together with the same opportunities. Some kids can work booths, while others raise awareness for the organization. Some kids can help set up, and some kids can help break down the booth at the end. This way, kids are responsible for more than just sales. They all pitch in in different ways.

Some final tips for cooperative fundraising:

  • Regularly meet to talk about the group goals and what you are doing together to achieve them.
  • Tally success as a group and don’t track individual contribution.
  • Offer a group prize for everyone when the fundraising is finished, like a pizza party.

Competition and cooperation both have their merits and can each drive great results. Choosing one over the other depends on the people involved and what your ultimate goal is.

At Popcorn Palace, we love to talk fundraising. If you need any help with an upcoming fundraiser, than read through more blog articles for helpful fundraising tips or contact Popcorn Palace today.
