CLEVELAND, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In any given weekend, you'll find kids across America wearing mattress costumes waving "Mattress Fundraiser" signs to passersby. Whether it's a high school football team, marching band or drama club, these groups have turned to the "Mattress Fundraiser" to help fund their programs. While this sounds a little odd, the "Mattress Fundraiser" has gained popularity, reaching a huge milestone - proving it is the fastest, easiest and most successful way for schools to raise thousands of dollars in just one day. The company behind the concept, Custom Fundraising Solutions, is proud to announce they have given back OVER $20 MILLION to schools across the country, nearly $5 million in 2016 alone! CLICK TO TWEET.
The idea is to sell quality, name-brand beds, priced up to 50% less than retail, that people actually need … all while giving dollars back to the school. One in 10 people buy a new mattress every year, which creates a demand every year. CFS first launched the concept in Cleveland, Ohio, where schools have been hosting events annually, since 2005. Schools can contact one of the 70+ CFS locations nationwide, by visiting http://www.customfundraisingsolutions.com/locations.
How much can a school earn in just one day? Ask the East Ascension High School in Gonzales, Louisiana. They just SMASHED (their own) national record, raising $58,295 in just one day! President and CEO of Custom Fundraising Solutions, Joe Matejka had this to say, "The key to the Mattress Fundraiser's success is largely in part to the dedicated faculty and students who believe in CFS and the "Mattress Fundraiser". We offer the community top-quality products for a great value, while providing excellent customer service AND giving back a substantial portion to the school. Our focus has always been to give as much back to the schools as we can."
