Mixed Bag Fundraisers Begins Tuesday, Sept 27

Posted Sep 24, 2016 | Category: Fundraising

Hauser PTO is bringing Mixed Bags to Hauser!

We are partnering with Mixed Bag Designs to sell reusable bags, totes, kitchenware, gifts and other eco-friendly products.  You’ve probably seen your friends sporting a Mixed Bag Design, or maybe you saw the products at Parent’s Night. Now’s your chance to get Mixed Bags  for yourself – and they make great holiday gifts! A packet with catalogs and order forms will come home with your child on Wednesday, September 28th.  The sale begins online on Tuesday, September 27 and ends October 12 – so get your orders in quickly! Check out the flyer for more details.

Starting tomorrow, you can log on to www.mixedbagdesigns.com/?fundraiserid=571146 to order online, share the link with friends and family, or get a sneak peek at all the great products in the Mixed Bag line. Our fundraiser ID is 571146!  Share the website and catalog with neighbors, co-workers, friends and family – there’s something for everyone!  Thank you!
