If you love a great success story, read on, because this one is a beauty.

With the efforts of a generous sponsor and some cleverly packaged water bottles, we recently helped Malvern Central School raise an incredible $9,000 in just one day!

When Malvern Central School called us up and mentioned that they had a school fair planned in a couple of months, we immediately set to work to find them the perfect sponsor to assist them in raising money at the event.

That perfect sponsor emerged in the form of local Real Estate agency RT Edgar, generously investing $5000.

As part of the sponsorship arrangement, we made sure that RT Edgar would stand out. We quickly set our designers to work, custom creating terrific packaging to wrap around the 5040 bottles being delivered to the school. We even produced a nifty QR code to feature on the bottle, so people could use their smart phone to interact with the brand online – and boy did they!

On the day of the fair the school sold an outstanding 3000 bottles, but here’s the really interesting part. Talking to one of the thrilled key organisers after the event she revealed, “We didn’t even push the bottles! We didn’t make a big effort to push them and yet we sold 3000.”

Pretty impressive, but it gets even better.

After the fair, the clever team at Malvern Central School put their left over bottles to work, packaging them up in boxes and selling them in bulk.

In just two and a half weeks, the remaining bottles were snapped up and the school was left with a total of $15,000 profit, more than what they ever anticipated raising in such a short amount of time.

Meanwhile, RT Edgar benefited from an audience of over 6000 people engaging with their brand, and considering that many of the pop-top bottles are being re-used, the company’s exposure is set to continue.

If you’d love to have a success story of your own, why not give the Pack Media crew a call? It costs you nothing (ever) and you could potentially raise thousands of dollars for your organisation.

Until next time, cheers!
