It's Pizza Time!
Our Little Caesars Fundraiser is going strong! In fact, you might say we go together like cheese and pepperoni! Have you set up your Seller page and started selling yet? We really need your help.
Our group earns $6 profit on every Kit we sell. We need your help to reach our goal! Big pizza eating days are just around the corner, so make sure you have Pizza Kits on hand for your celebration this year. Remember that you can also email link to your family and friends, so they don’t miss out, and post on your social media pages. Shipping costs are the same for 1 Kit or 2 Kits, so stock up and help us reach our goal!
To get started follow this link to create your very own Seller page. You can customize your page, upload a video, create an avatar, and watch how many pizza kits you’ve sold. You’ll get your own special link to send to your friends and family so they can buy delicious pizza kits and support our fundraiser. Pizza Kits will be delivered directly to their home by FedEx, so send the link to your out of state family and friends, too. You can even post your Seller link on your social media pages.
