This has been a rather BIG week at FundingFactory. Many significant accomplishments, milestones, and updates were experienced that could not go undocumented. To sum it all up, here is FundingFactory Friday Favorites.
As if the bright orange graphic above was not obvious enough, the “Fall Into Autumn Collection Contest” began Saturday! Every qualifying item sent to FundingFactory from now till October 31 earns you an entry for a chance to win one of five $100 (250 points) coupons that are redeemable in FundingFactory’s Rewards Catalog.
A new feature that we are extra-proud to share is our new pricing structure! This allows participants to earn more than ever before. As of Saturday September 1, FundingFactory is paying a minimum of 10¢ for any printer cartridge or small electronic, regardless of condition.
Here’s the breakdown:
Another new feature on our website is Sustainability Reporting. This allows participants to track their environmental impact on a monthly or yearly basis with charts that display the qualifying items by type that were spared from landfills. The reports detail environmental impact equivalents and also shows how recycling saves nonrenewable natural resources by offsetting harmful CO2 emissions.
A BIG welcome to GreenSchoolProject participants! Now that GSP has merged with FundingFactory, they can receive the same perks, incentives, and promotions as FundingFactory. And we don’t have to make 2 versions of everything – everything is eco-friendly! GSP didn’t have to go far – the same staff and facility that operates FundingFactory has been serving GreenSchoolProject since 2007! Glad to have you, GSP!
FundingFactory wants you to achieve success this year like no other! That’s why we have created a goal-setting page for participants to monitor their progress throughout the year. Space was purposely made on our 2012-2013 calendar to have participants write down their goals for each month. To make it absolutely official, participants can create and set goals by logging in to their FundingFactory account. Once a goal has been set, participants are encouraged to share their unique URL to stir up public awareness. Don’t forget to set your goals!
One particular Facebook Fan made us very happy this week.Vanessa Y. became our 8,000 Facebook Fan. Erika, our program manager, returned the gesture with a thumbs up. Thank you, Vanessa!
Deborah D. was chosen as our winner for September’s Secret Word Contest, and received a $25 Staples gift card. Another winner this week was Matt M. He won a $50 Apple gift card for snapping and sharing the photo below, on our Facebook page. As you can see, he is proudly displaying our new 2012-2013 calendar and newsletter. Thank you for your participation, Deborah and Matt!
As the aroma of pencil shavings fills the air, and school bus stops become more frequent on daily commutes, we are reminded that the school season is upon us. On behalf of FundingFactory, we hope everyone is settling into the 2012-2013 school year smoothly!
Didn’t we tell you that a lot happened this week? It’s incredible. We hope you enjoy all the new features, and thank you for continuing to make us a contributor to your success story.
