Inspiring K-12 Students to make the world a kinder place!
Program Cost 2016-2017
The Seeds of Kindness (Option 1) does not require a minimum sale. This option is the epitome of everything the ReesSpecht Life Foundation stands for: Paying forward kindness! The host school will get the program at NO COST – with the promise that the school will host our “Seeds of Kindness” sale for 5 school days after the presentation(s). Additionally, the school will be asked to offer a “pre-sale” of Author signed copies of our Children’s book approximately one week before Mr. Specht comes. Watch the video below for a better idea of how it works:
The sale of our items, including our children’s book, Pay it Forward cards, boomerangs, and hot sauce will commence right after the assemblies and last for one week. The school will be provided with order forms for all students. At the end of the week a coordinator at the school will forward the ReesSpecht Life Foundation the school’s total order and we will ship all items to you at no cost.
The school will be forwarded promotional material two weeks prior to the assembly and we encourage you to share details of the sale with your students and staff. Remember, the ReesSpecht Life Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charity, and proceeds of the sale will go to providing shows for other schools, as well to help support our other charitable endeavors. If your fundraiser raises more than the cost of the show (for example if it were 2 performances the cost would have been $1500) the extra funds, minus the cost of supplies, will be SPLIT between the ReesSpecht Life Foundation and school/PTA that hosted the sale! Alternatively, the extra money raised can be used to create a ReesSpecht Life Scholarship in the host school’s district. Learn more about the ReesSpecht Life Foundation HERE
If your school chooses Standard option (option 2), and you are located outside of the greater NYC/Long Island area, an additional travel stipend will be added to the cost of the show. The stipend will vary based on airfare/lodging costs unique to your location, but will never exceed $750.00 Shows in the greater Raleigh-Durham area are also exempt from the travel stipend.
If your school is interested in The Harvest! (Option 3), please contact the foundation at (631)-353-9924 so that we may work out a price based on the number of students and staff.
We believe in the quality and message of our book, and other items and offer a 100% guarantee on all items.
* We will work with school districts if they wish to book multiple schools in the district. Multiple schools booked consecutively will only pay the additional assembly price! If you are a small school and option 1 does not work for you, call us at (631)-353-9924 and we can work out a fair price.
