Hi, I'm Tracey Taylor and I live in Hamilton, New Zealand.
Your Grocery Fundraiser was created at the end 2016, which stemmed from my desire to give back to the community as my way of saying thanks for the times I had been a single parent and momentarily unemployed.
Unfortunately having a real job got in the way of launching Your Grocery Fundraiser so I decided 2019 was going to be the year.
Nike's tagline Just Do It ! finally won me over.
The purpose of Your Grocery Fundraiser is to give 10-20% of the retail price on a carefully selected range of grocery items back as a donation to fundraising groups, individuals or to registered charities when orders are collectively obtained and distributed.
Your Grocery Fundraiser is not competing with major supermarkets on price, I like to think of it as being more like the little grocer in the suburbs.
Currently Your Grocery Fundraiser is only operable in the Waikato Region.
Your Grocery Fundraiser is able to supply product booklets and order forms to your group, club and workplace. (Your workplace doesn't necessarily mean you own it, it just means that you would personally like your workplace to get behind a cool idea!)
Support an Individual or a group
Perhaps within your own workplace, you know of someone who needs a helping hand?
This could be by way of sponsorship for a sports trip, or for someone who has experienced hardship due to unforeseen circumstances. Maybe your Social Club wants to do something extra special this year?
Whatever your workplace comes up with, it is bound to help someone out!
And this is what Your Grocery Fundraiser is all about.
If your workplace would like to help within the community and you don't have your own preferred cause or charity, then check out the Give-a-little website. The donation will be made by Your Grocery Fundraiser on your behalf - and yes, your workplace is acknowledged and gratefully thanked!
At this stage, Your Grocery Fundraiser is kicking off with delicious condiments from Wild Country Fine Foods and 363 Grillhouse, fresh baked breads and pastries from Volare Breads, Venerdi Gluten Free and Paleo breads, Ultimate Eggs (free range and barn laid), Acres Cat and Dog Biscuits, Juno Olives (award winning Extra Virgin Olive Oils), a full selection from Prenzel (Rice Bran Infused Oils, Vinaigrettes, Condiments and Dessert Toppings) and Websters Organic Loose Leaf Teas.
As this business grows, so will the product list - with a continuing theme of healthier, tastier and environmentally conscious where possible.
How to Order
There are two ways of ordering after your registration is processed.
Payment is made through Paypal so it is very secure - no credit/debit card details are required by Your Grocery Fundraiser. Alternatively, they can send me an email with their order and make payment via internet banking.
2. Paper Based - A PDF file of the Product Booklet and Order Form can either be emailed and printed out at your end or I can drop them off, if your workplace is local to Hamilton City.
Distribute the Product Booklet and Order forms and collect back. Scan each order form through to Your Grocery Fundraiser otherwise, courier or post.
I am more than happy to come in and help collate and package your orders. Please, just ask!
