Jamberry nail wraps are unique plastic coverings, available in hundreds of styles, that are applied to the nail to achieve a professional and totally unique look. Although this post was sponsored by one of my advertisers, all opinions are my own, and I think they are great products I want to share with FRM readers.
In a Nutshell
Fundraising Ideas: Jamberry nail wraps
Suitable for: individuals and groups, remote communities, fundraising across communities
Profit: minimum 10% of sales
Jamberry Nail Wraps might be one of the less traditional ways to raise funds, but that can also be a strength at a time when people are bored with the same types of fundraisers. The nailwraps come in over 300 designs, with each sheet of wraps sufficient for between 2-4 manis or pedis.
While the Jamberry wraps are obviously targeted at females, one advantage of a product such as this, is that you can direct fundraising efforts beyond the school community, and even target potential customers who live in a different state. Since the fundraiser can be conducted online, sellers can approach people outside of their school community, and there is no reason why a Jamberry fundraiser being held by a school in Batemans Bay, couldn’t sell to friends and family who live in Perth.
The easiest way to explain the wraps is through pictures – but they are non-toxic wraps that are applied at home with the help of a hair dryer, and unlike traditional nail polish they last for at least two weeks without chipping. They’re also a lot more interesting and come in a variety of themes (over 300 designs) including floral, flags, glitter and even Easter. Jamberry juniors are a smaller version of the wraps suitable for children, in a range of kid-appropriate designs.
Each sheet costs $22 (the premium designs can cost $25) and contain 18 wraps. Since you use only half a wrap (or less) for each nail, each sheet will therefore have enough for approximately two or three manis or pedis. You can also mix-and-match the designs.
Jamberry have a continuing promotion where you can buy three sheets and receive a fourth sheet for free, bringing the average price down to $16.50 per sheet (or around $5.50 per mani).
Jamberry also have other associated products such as mini heaters (to help set the wraps), orange sticks and cuticle creams. There is also a Celebration Box ($144) which includes enough wraps and goodies for a party of 8 – perfect for a hen’s night, girls night in, or birthday party for girls.
All products are included in the fundraising program with a minimum of 10% of all sales being donated back to the fundraiser.
The Fundraising Process
The individual, school or group would contact the Jamberry consultant at https://jammyjoy.jamberrynails.com.au. A Party Page would be created and the link would be shared with all potential sellers and customers. If you were planning on conducting the entire fundraiser online, you could email the link to friends and family, post on Facebook or social media, and all sales would be made via the website, with their products posted directly to them.
Alternatively, if you wanted to have a more personal fundraiser, you could advertise the nail wraps (speak to Steph about obtaining some samples) with a mother-and-daughter evening, a girls/mums night or even at a stall at a local market or fete.
Orders made online via the party page would automatically be included in the fundraising total, and orders taken in person must be collated (and the money collected upfront) and the money deposited before the product was dispatched and the final donation calculated.
At the conclusion of the fundraiser, a cheque equalling a minimum of 10% of sales will be sent to the organisation.
Due to the online nature of the fundraising process, this makes Jamberry suitable for group who are remote, or who are based within a very small community. With social marketing and email, people within the fundraising group can easily promote the fundraiser to friends and family in other states, and since the products are posted directly to them, there is no need for the fundraising group to organise distribution or pay postage costs.
This would also be a manageable fundraiser for an individual, especially if they had a large online community.
While the individual sheets at $22 might seem pricey, it is worth remembering that this would cover at least two or three manicures. The Jamberry Junior wraps would cover double that amount of manicures.
Although the fundraiser can be done online, this can also be promoted as a very personal and intimate event – encourage people to buy the wraps and then hold a party (it could be in conjunction with Girls Night In).
While the wraps themselves are obviously targeted at females, there is no reason that marketing needs to be directed only at females. A clever campaign targeted at dads/husbands prior to Mother’s Dad would help generate sales.
