Option 1: The seed of kindness sale – ($500.00 *refundable deposit)
Schools that choose this option pay $500.00 for as many assemblies as they need over the course of 1 day. All students will be given an order form after the assembly to purchase items provided by the ReesSpecht Life Foundation. Proceeds from the sale cover the cost of the assembly. If the school raises an amount equal to the flat cost of the number assemblies requested, the $500.00 is refunded. If the school raises more than our cost, the foundation will split the proceeds with the school or PTA!
Option 2: Flat Fee Pricing – ($1000+)
Schools that choose this option pay a flat fee of $1000.00 for one assembly. Additional assemblies booked for the same day are $500.00 per extra assembly. All students in staff in attendance will receive a “Cultivate Kindness” Pay it Forward Card, plus the school gets a poster and follow up activities for teachers.
Option 3: Mix ‘n Match – ($1000+)
Schools that choose this option pay a flat fee of $1000.00 for one assembly. Additional assemblies booked for the same day are FREE provided:
- The school/PTA purchases items (such as signed copies of our book, bracelets, boomerangs, etc) for the student body. Special volume pricing on all items.
- The school/PTA offers our book (or any other single item) for sale to all students at regular price.
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 Mix n’ Match option (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 and the specific format you wish to use at your school.
We believe in the quality and message of our book, and other items and offer a 100% guarantee on all items.
*Deposit is refunded if the school raises, at minimum, the equivalent cost of the number of assemblies at the flat fee price. i.e. if the school has two assemblies it needs to raise $1500 for the deposit to be refunded.
*** 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.
