Revolutionizing School Fundraising: The Inspirational Story of Fundraiser Blankets®

Are you tired of the same old fundraising options year after year? We have an extraordinary solution for you that’s spreading nationwide, offering a fresh and impactful way to support your school or sports team. Introducing Fundraiser Blankets®, a business founded by dynamic sister duo Barbara Kent, a disabled combat veteran, and Joanna Serra, an award-winning teacher. Raised in Metro Detroit and headquartered here, these sisters are transforming school and sports fundraising with their custom blankets and now, proudly also print them here.

While the sad truth remains that schools are underfunded, the solution doesn’t have to be outdated or feel like an obligation. There are better options out there to fundraise with that provide value at a fair price.

A Story of Resilience and Innovation

Barbara and Joanna immigrated to the United States from Poland in 1988, witnessing firsthand their mother’s hard physical labor to make ends meet. This instilled in them the values of hard work and determination. With education as their top priority, both sisters pursued college degrees and conventional careers including teaching and joining the army. However, life had different plans, and their passion for sewing turned into a thriving small business where they knew they could give back like once the community gave to them.

Motivated by their experiences in disadvantaged school systems, Barbara and Joanna launched Fundraiser Blankets® to create meaningful change. They understood the importance of affordable and profitable fundraising options for schools and dedicated themselves to providing high-quality, customized spirit blankets. Their mission is clear: to replace overpriced, low-value fundraising items with something families cherish—cozy, memorable blankets wrapped in school spirit.

The Original $12.50 Custom Fundraiser Blanket

Fundraiser Blankets® introduced the groundbreaking $12.50 all-inclusive custom fundraiser blanket. These products, now proudly printed in Michigan, are revolutionizing the way schools and sports teams raise funds. The blankets are not only practical and useful but also offer a high-profit margin, making them an attractive option for fundraising.

Spirit blankets can be easily customized to match your school’s or athletics unique identity whether that’s a tie dye design with a logo or a more in depth option with a slogan or motto to make it extra unique. If you want to include the school’s or teams name or logo, Fundraiser Blankets can be customized to promote your group or organization in every detail. You can also choose from different colors, patterns, and sizes, which allows you to cater to a broader audience. There are no color limits or surprise charges, it’s unlimited colors and corner to corner print! This customization will make the blanket even more popular amongst kids!

Custom personalized school or team spirit blankets are versatile and can be sold at different school events and purchased in bulk or in pre-sales. For instance, they can be sold at sports games, concerts, conferences, fairs, or even through the front office. This versatility makes the large fundraiser blankets an excellent choice for schools of all sizes and types.

Fundraising can be a crucial way for elementary, middle and high schools, sports teams, stadiums, boosters, bands, troops, teams, athletics, clubs, churches, and leagues to support their various activities. When it comes to fundraising, a fundraising spirit blanket program is a great option for any group looking to raise funds.
