Ethical fundraiser Seeds for the Future ~ better than chocolate or cakes
Thursday, 17 February 2011
Toys, books, chocolate, cakes and shopping tours.
These are some of things I’ve been invited to buy in the name of fundraising. I like to support our local schools and community groups, but I’m not usually prepared to buy something I don’t need, to do so. I’m often left with a sense of guilt for not contributing to fundraising.
So I was thrilled when I heard about the Australian ethical fundraiser Seeds for the Future.
To raise funds for your chosen charity you simply sell packets of organic seeds. The sweet little packets of are made from recycled paper and printed with vegetable ink. There’s nothing to feel guilty about there!
Interested? Find out how it works here.
I love that the current seeds can be easily gown in pots and are fast growing (perfect for impatient kids). There's even a growing tips page for each type of seed.
Erica, founder of Seeds for the Future, has sent me a box of her cute seed packets to giveaway to my readers. Thanks Erica!
I'm giving away a set of the Summer seed collection (as seen above) to five lucky Australian readers (each winner receives five packets of seeds).

I'm curious, if you had to raise funds for someone or something, who or what would it be? Me...i'd choose my favourite NGO, the Australian Network for Plant Conservation.You?
Be well and happy,
