Within the packet is a catalog of candles that are for sale and a traditional order form. You might bring this to your office or share with your neighbors.

Another way to let friends and family know about the candles and allow them to place an order is through the website. It is fairly simple to set up.

The site is

In the center of the home page you will find a box titled Start Shopping. In that box is a link that reads Create SELLER login.

Fill in the Sign Up to be a Seller section. The group number is 990098674

Once you have set up your seller login you have the option to add names and emails of friends and family who would want to buy from you as well as share on Twitter and Facebook. You will also be able to login and track all your online sales.

There is also a mobile app. Go to the Google Play or Apple store and find the Yankee Fundraiser. Setting up the mobile app is similar to setting up the website app. With the mobile app you can text your friends and family a link to buy the candles.

How much will you raise? Yankee Candle gives 40% of all sales. For all fundraisers the band splits the money 10% to the general band fund and 90% to the student accounts.

The holidays are right around the corner and everyone loves candles.
