Most items used as fundraisers are able to raise money, but few have the ability to raise money and give back to society. Swanson Elementary School just completed its fundraiser with the sale of one of those special items – canned drinking water from CannedWater4kids (CW4K).

Each sale provided funds for school activities that included, a 5th grade graduation party, a 5th grade gift back to the school and t-shirts for every graduate. Each sale also provided support for clean drinking water projects worldwide.

“Our kids were excited to learn that every can they sold not only earned the school money, but also helped provide clean drinking water to children worldwide who have none,” said Kori Hartman, Principal of Swanson Elementary. “This fundraiser mirrored our school values in promoting peace, empathy and compassion.”

“Water Wednesdays” as it was called, became a weekly fundraising event where the school sold CW4K canned drinking water during lunch on Wednesdays during the second half of the school year.

“When used as a fundraiser, we see our canned drinking water sales as kids helping kids,” said Greg Stromberg, CW4K Founder & CEO. “CW4K is more than just another fundraising item. Every sale also helps fund projects that bring clean, safe drinking water to children worldwide.”

“CW4K canned drinking water is the perfect alternative for those tired of the usual candy bar and cookie fundraisers,” said Peter Gorman, CW4K Board Member and CMO. “We introduced our fundraising program in January of 2018. The quick response and early success of Swanson Elementary has us excited about the potential of CW4K in the fundraising space.”

CW4K canned drinking water could be the fundraising program that so many clubs and organizations have been waiting for. Call CannedWater4kids today at 262-246-8480 and see what CW4K can do for you.
