I remember being a young kid and thinking to myself that I had it all figured out. I was the kid that you went to high school that seemed to know everyone and everyone knew me. It took me an extra 5 minute. or so to go from one class to another simply because I had so many people to say hello to. Life was so simple back then. The two most important things in my life at that time were wrestling and then girls. Once in a while we would be at a tournament and I would be fortunate enough to earn a date with one of the other teams cheerleaders which would enable me to enjoy both the wrestling and the girl. Life was so simple back then. It seemed like it would never end, but then it did. All of a sudden I was out in the real world where I didn’t know anybody and nobody had ever heard of me either. I got married two years after graduating and then had a daughter approximately 2 years after that. Therefore, with what seemed to be the weight of the world on my shoulders, I knew that I had to figure it out quickly. I think this is the main reason that I have such a heart for wanting to work with young people and especially college students. They have all these great ideas as well as share huge potential. They also seem to have what appears to be an endless amount of energy. There is an old saying that reads youth is wasted on the young. If I only knew then what I know now, life could have been a whole lot easier.
In spite of all these great attributes, these young kids seem to share a few similarities. They are all lacking direction and they are normally lacking financial resources to work with. Most of them tend to appreciate as well as welcome any help that someone is willing to give them. Effort is very admirable, but it doesn’t pay the bills. You can be running as fast as you possibly can, but if you’re running west when you should be going east, you’re going the wrong direction. If you are thinking about starting some kind of fundraiser you first need to figure out what it is that you want to sell.. I would suggest that you entertain the possibility of selling custom T-shirts. Unlike pizzas or Girl Scout cookies, digital T-shirt printing is not perishable. Therefore, if you don’t happen to sell them all by the date of your event, you could always sell them later. We have been known to act as a partial sponsor when it comes to helping kids launch a fund raising campaign. We are well aware of the fact that it’s not easy, but we’ve been in this industry long enough to recognize what is going to be effective and what isn’t and we can allocate those strategies accordingly.
We are a St. Louis screen printing company who also caters to the needs of our customers when they happen to be looking for a dependable St. Louis embroidery company as well. We have been in the silk screening business for a long time. Why don’t you give us a call and talk to one of our representatives about your custom t-shirts? Then be as honest as you can and let us know as much as you possibly can about yourself and what you’re trying to accomplish. Then we can try to come up with a realistic plan of action that will not only offset any budget restrictions that you might be working with, but will also allow us to work together for years to come.
