What different types of charity badges are available?
Charity badges are a must have if you want to seriously promote your charity and in the meantime find a quick and easy way to raise some much needed funds. They are a non-intrusive way of getting your messages out there for your charity and any upcoming event such as an awareness week that your charity may be a part of, o an event the charity is having like a show, fund raiser or dinner.
People don’t think twice when buying small mementos of these types of occasion to remember and of course to support the charity at the same time. Therefore having badges as keepsakes prove very popular with event goers.
Promotional badges are preferred by fundraising departments of almost all charities, no matter of size, because they go a long way in promoting the charity. They promote the image and increase the awareness of the charity at a relatively low cost when compared with traditional advertising such as newspaper or television advertising . They can be used in a variety of ways whether on clothing, bags, key-rings, and refrigerator and many other places.
Promotional badges are custom made to fit the organization’s logo with messages or its motto. As most charities depend heavily on donations to fund their day to day existence, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find donors. Also donors really want to feel special and like to receive some token of appreciation. No matter how any donations are collected or indeed how much it is, it is nice to give something back to the donor and that could be in the form of a pin-badge.
With donations decreasing due to the current economic climate, charities are returning to more traditional avenues of fundraising and charity merchandise to sell, like charity badges, is back up to top of their list.
