High School Fundraisers

The Pirate Project

Introducing:
1.  Our concept – School Spirit Bracelets
2.  Our hope – that we can reach high school students across the US and Europe through social media
3.  Our vision – a fundraiser that simultaneously raises money for your school AND for the benefit of education in underprivileged countries
But first, lets see if we can actually, – DO IT?

Wood Charmer opted to tackle a complex high school mascot, the pirate face emblem from Oceanside High contains a lot of detail to downscale into a 0.65 inch wooden charm.  Guess what? We not only did it, but we couldn’t be more thrilled with the result!

TEAM! SPIRIT! UNITE! Wear your school colors and show your school spirit with hand-beaded charm bracelets.

We seemed to have captured the essence of this fighting pirate mascot and coupled the rustic wooden charm with black, white and green Czech glass beads – in the spirit of their school colors.

We’ve also managed to engrave Oceanside’s duelling sword emblem in two different “wood burn” tones, accentuating the letter O as it frames the pirate’s swords.

We then partnered with an award winning rural development agency to take advantage of their expertise.  We are proud to say our charm bracelets are hand-beaded in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa by Africa!Ignite, a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.  Beading provides an income for women who honor the Zulu heritage with their traditional bead-working craft.  Africa!Ignite provides them with support, enabling them to participate fairly in the economy and global society.

These charming School Spirit Bracelets are intended for sale during Spirit Week as a unique way to raise money for your school, Associated Student Body (ASB) or homecoming events.  It’s also a trendy way for students to show their unity and commitment.

These bracelets can be purchased in bulk at $4 each*

We suggest retailing them to students at $8-10 for a winning fundraiser

* US dollars, ordered in quantities of 250  – Includes DHL shipping to your school. There are no design charges, and we will provide you with a sample piece or photo prior to producing the full run of the product.
