Wellness for Health through Fundraising"

First Fundraising Project - The Boy Scouts

For over 13 years, my family has been involved with the Boy Scouts. Our son, Sean Adair, is an Eagle Scout and he helped me to be an Eagle Scout Dad. I have the pin to prove it.

This is my Eagle Scout Dad Project. My personal goal is to change "Fundraising to Funraising" by helping the Boy Scouts raise the money needed to conduct Scouting Programs by selling Noah's California Spring Water in our proprietary "Wellness for Health through Fundraising" campaign.

What is Different About Our Fundraising Program?

(1) Noah's California Spring Water is a Sole-Source Functional 100% Natural Spring Water, that is naturally Sodium Free with naturally elevated levels of magnesium and bicarbonate, available only from Adobe Springs.

(2) Your Troop can earn money promoting Wellness all year long, 24/7/365.

Why The Boy Scouts?

First, because everybody needs water daily (regardless of age) and there are a lot of Scouts and Scout Families.

Every year, Our Troop spends a lot of time, energy and dollars to raise money so Our Troop, District and Council can do their jobs ... provide the best Scouting Program they can for Your Sons. Every hour, every ounce of energy, every dollar spent (except teaching the Scouts about Fundraising) takes away from the Scouting Program.

Boy Scouts sell popcorn and candy, conduct garage sales and car washes and ask for cash donations.

The Noah's Water Fundraising Solution

Noah's California Spring Water

Question: What are these Scouts and Scoutmasters missing?

Answer: They're not drinking Noah's California Spring Water ... yet!

How the Noah's Water Fundraising Program Works

The cost of the product is $11.00 per case, FOB Modesto, California and includes the CA Cash Refund, currently at $.96 per case. If you order online the CA Cash Refund would be an additional charge, making the product cost $12.00 per case, FOB Modesto, CA.

NOTE: If you live in the Modesto area, the product costs less because there is no freight. Do you live in Modesto?

FREIGHT: To ship one (1) case of 20-ounce bottles (24 per case) from Modesto to Los Angeles costs $12.00 to $15.00, making the total cost $23.00 to $27.00 per case delivered and more the farther East you are. In some cases, due to delivery costs, it comes out to over $40.00 per case delivered.

By buying and shipping in bulk; that is, By-The-Pallet/By-The-Truckload of 20 pallets, the Freight cost per case is projected to average $3.00 to $4.00 per case across the United States. By including a Freight Allowance of $3.00 to $4.00 a case, then every Troop across our country will have the same pricing structure and an equal opportunity to raise money.

Ways For the Boy Scouts to Earn Additional Revenue

Collect the empty bottles and redeem the CA Cash Refund, earning an additional $1.00 per case or $63. per pallet.
Scout Scholarship Fund: In addition to the $95.00 per pallet that we will be accumulating to fund scholarships, you can approach the local business community for Matching Grants.

Scholarships will be awarded for: Higher Education, Scout and Adult Trainings, Summer Camps, Uniform and Supplies Banks, Camporees/Jamborees and Water for Meetings, Eagle Scout Honor Courts and Award Dinners.
Add another $.25 per bottle for Single Bottle Sales; that is, open a case and sell single bottles for $1.50 per bottle, earning additional revenue per case of 24 bottles of up to $6.00 per case or $378.00 per pallet.
Sell all year, 24/7 online and continue to raise funds.
