(Disclosure: This is a sponsored post but all thoughts are my own.)
One of my favorite ways to spend Saturdays in the warmer months is to watch my boys play soccer. They’ve played through our local park district, on a private league and are starting weekly indoor soccer classes next week. They love the game, especially when they get to score a goal. They also love the sidelines when they can cheer for their teammates and chat non-stop.
As much as I love my kids playing sports, I don’t like the fundraising that typically comes along with it. For one of Jacob’s teams I had to sell 90 candy bars. Since I hate asking people for money they are all sitting in my fridge still (other than the five or so that I’ve already eaten). That’s $90 worth of money going out of my pocket and chocolate going on my hips.
Are you like me and wish there was an easier way to raise money for your team or group without having to pester your friends and family? Well, there is! PearUp makes sponsorship easy for groups and events looking for support and it is FREE. Here is how PearUp works:
Seeing that kids, like my boys, get a lot out of playing soccer on a team, Ritz Bits wants to help keep leagues going by hosting a “Snack for Your Champion” program using PearUp. Ritz Bits is offering $1000 to teams in exchange for parents completing some online activities. That $1,000 can be used toward team apparel or can simply be a donation to the soccer team for team/league fees. What a great way to reduce costs so more children can play!
