including 50% profit, direct shipments to your customer's home, and our
extraordinary candles, accessories, gift wrap, and food items. With
our online program you can select which items you want to offer your
customers. If your organization is unable to sell food items that's no
problem! You can simply opt to exclude them from your sales!
In addition, Celebrating Home will handle all the money and customer
contacts for you. Once the program is set up, you'll be able to reach
a broader audience and increase your sales by sending
emails to anyone you wish, your sellers can utilize a variety of social
media such as Facebook, Twitter, Email
etc to invite out-of-town, out-of-state, even local friends and family they
won't be seeing during the fundraiser to shop online and support your
fundraiser! Your participants can register themselves online to share
this fundraising program with their family and friends. It just doesn't get any easier!

You can now offer all your customers an opportunity to continue shopping with Celebrating Home for up to 90 days following the closing of your fundraiser! When distributing your products you can include a note inviting your customers to continue shopping with Celebrating Home. When you register your fundraiser you'll be able to provide an address for sending your profit check. Additional profits received from your extended sales will be sent to you directly from the company. There's nothing you need to do!

Fall fundraisers can continue to promote sales for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Early spring fundraisers can promote for Mother's Day, Graduation gifts etc. Our products are perfect for all your gift-giving needs, anytime of the year!
Greater Variety of Products Online!
With our seasonal brochures we overlap on our programs and with an online fundraiser during August and January you will be able to offer your customers the opportunity to shop from both our Spring/Summer and our Fall/Winter product lines. Additionally, exclusive items may be available online only for a greater shopping experience.
Combine our Traditional Brochure Fundraiser with our Online Fundraiser for even Greater Profits for your Organization!
Do your participants have friends and family out of town, out of state, or friends and family they won't be seeing before the conclusion of your fundraiser? With today's social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Email, Messenger etc our Online Fundraising Program provides the perfect opportunity to maximize your fundraising sales. Although we will support organizations who wish to only hold an online fundraiser we recommend combining our traditional brochure fundraiser with our online fundraising program for the best results.
For the BEST results we recommend promoting a combination of our face-to-face brochure program along with an online campaign. In most cases, organizations will experience a significant increase in sales when running them concurrently.
Celebrating Home is Committed to your Success!

Not only have we created seasonal items for Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter we have dedicated many years in developing the very best candles available, strived to provide affordably priced products, and excellence in customer service.

How our Program Works:
Call us at 1-888-209-0613
Setting up your customized webpage is easy! Contact us to get started!
1. Select a Campaign Name for your fundraiser.
Manage Your Fundraisers
If you need to edit your site, view reports, share the link with supporters, or any other relevant action with your site, the way to do this is ot log into your My Fundraiser page and signing in with your username and password. Your representative will register your fundraiser on your behalf and will assign you a username and password.
Notice there are 3 sections to this page. Active, Pending and Completed Fundraisers.
1. Active fundraisers are ones that are currently available for online shopping by supporters. There are a number of tools available for Active Fundraisers.
To edit any details of the registration including contact details and the dates the fundraiser will be held, click on the Campaign Name that is a link. In the example above, the link is Dogs Need Toys Too. Clicking on that link will open the initial registration form and allow almost any field to be edited.
Clicking on E-mail Supporters will open a dialog box and prompt for your e-mail address. An e-mail will be sent to that address, and the Organization can then forward the e-mail to its participants (sellers/students)> The e-mail instructs them how to register as a participant, and provides other details of the fundraiser.
Edit Site allows you to edit your site text, colors and your image.
View Site will open your shopping site so that you can shop from it or use the social tools that are included on the site.
2. Pending fundraisers have been registered, but have information that is not fully complete for shopping to begin.
The reasons a registration might still be pending are:
- The online site has not yet been created. In the image above under "Site Created," it says "No" and there is a link beside that labeled "Create." This shows the user that the site has not yet been created and prompts her/him with the link to use to do so.
- The registration was created as tax exempt and the form has not yet been sent and/or approved by the tax department. This is indicated by a "No" in the "Tax Exempt Approved?" column.
3. Completed fundraisers are the fundraisers that have already been submitted and/or the online closing date has passed. The user can still see these for reports, but no portion is editable.
Using Your Shopping Site
Now that your site is created there are several tools built into the site itself that will be beneficial to you.
Share Your Fundraiser with Supporters.
Anyone shopping on your site can help you get the word out to other potential supporters.
In the Share Our Fundraiser section:
- You can send yourself an e-mail that includes the shopping link that you ca then easily forward to anyone in your address book encouraging her to support the group.
- You can create a post on you Facebook wall to share the shopping link for your fundraiser in a forum where extended social network will see it and have an opportunity to shop.
- You can share the fundraiser on Twitter and other social media to provide excellent visibility to your fundraiser to a much larger audience than was previously possible.
Communicate Your Goals and Progress
There is a section on your shopping site that gives visitors information about when your fundraiser is scheduled to come to a close, what your goal is for online sales and the progress you've made toward your goal so far.
If your Organization is awarding prizes for sales or giving participant credit toward individual expenses based on sales made on their behalf, it is important to have the participants register. They can do this by simply providing their First Name, and e-mail address on the shopping site.
When your participants register, they will automatically receive an e-mail with their unique URL that ensures that that individual gets credit for sales made using that link. By forwarding that e-mail to their friends and family, it can be guaranteed that anyone who shops using that link does so to the credit of that participant.
When the supporters shop, their participants name will be shown on the check out page in a section labeled "Please Credit this sale to."
