Each item for sale has a markup on the wholesale price of 50-100% (dependant on quantity purchased). The margin between the wholesale cost and the price we charge is invested into two main areas (detailed below) in order to enable us to help as many people as possible.
Any margin/'profit' we have left at the end of our project will go towards buying additional stock so every single penny is making a difference.
Just so you know, no-one involved in this project is taking any salary or stipend whatsoever. The only (minimal) costs are as follows:
In order to have the greatest impact we need to make sure as many people as possible find out about us and feel compelled to make a purchase. To do this we have to spend a nominal amount on printing flyers. We are currently trying to negotiate a printing sponsor so please let us know if you have any contacts who might be interested. This website also has a low monthly fee to keep it running.
Although all our locations spaces are kindly donated by our partners at One Good Deed Today and East Coat Roast, we need to decorate the space, buy packaging, signage, and other little bits to urge visitors to make a purchase.
