My apologies for posting an ad for FundHub, the company I am a district sales rep for.  My intent was not to advertise in an area that it was not intended for so I deleted my post.  That being said FundHub is a great company that offers great vendors and great products geared to make every fundraiser a huge success.  Feel free to contact me at  Going forward I will not post any form of advertising on this page.  My apologies and best of luck to all of you with fundraising and ideas in the future!

I don't think these forums are moderated at all anymore.

I thought there was not supposed to be advertising on this page, but it seems like that is all there is. Some of these ads don't even make sense. Why would I pay somebody to do a swap. That seems fairly easy to organize. I would love to have a message board that is only PTA people sharing what has and has not worked for them; not ads. PTAs get enough ads and junk mail from people wanting to make money off of us.

If your school runs product fundraisers, you might want to check out our new blog article: Fresh Fundraising Ideas 2012.

We went to the national convention of product fundraisers and came back with top tips for any school doing a fundraiser and a roundup of fun products you'll see this year.  Please check it out here.

Spellathon will also be the biggest, best and most exciting sponsored spelling competition ever. All Schools, Colleges and University Unions will receive 25% of the income fundraised by their students!

Spellathon also provides a new free resource for teachers for their students to practice American (and English) spelling in the classroom and at home in a fun, competitive and engaging way.

Stephen Fry ( is involved with Spellathon who has said: "This is just about the best integration of imagination, education, technology inclusiveness and fun that I've ever encountered"

Spellathon has been a successful, paper based annual fundraising event for learning disability charity Mencap for the last 18 years. In 2011 , by applying online, laptops, mobiles, tablets and smart whiteboard technologies with state -of-the-art 3D animation, Spellathon will reach a global audience.

Registration is now open for all Schools, Colleges and Universities from around the world, to receive a personal invitation from Stephen Fry and a Free Digital Schools Pack that will contain the interactive whiteboard game, assembly video, pre-populated digital marketing materials and everything else they need to take part.

Spellathon launches 10 October 2011. To register to receive all the information please visit:
