FUND RAISING WITH QUIX STIX
QUIX STIX is a unique fund raising opportunity and it is partly their challenge that makes them desirable to kids. QUIX STIX Fund Raising can be handled by your school with no help from QUIX STIX or with our assistance. The programs are as follows:
Unassisted Fund Raising
Purchase one QUIX STIX School Program Package for each school and involve an enthusiastic P.E. teacher(s) or coordinator(s) in the teaching process at school. The teacher(s) should be able to perform the basic trix depicted in the how-to animated flip books 1 & 2 and 3 & 4. Attaining this level of skill is not difficult, especially if the teacher(s) or coordinator(s) view the how-to video and practice. People with average coordination can perform these trixs within days of their initial introduction by practicing for 15 minutes per session, three times a day. Once these trixs can be performed by the teacher(s) or P.E. coordinators, the teaching can start with the kids.
The best time to teach QUIX STIX is during P.E. periods when the activity will not interfere with school class time and is complimentary to the P.E. period.
An area indoors or out of doors where kids can be evenly spaced about 5' to 6' apart is ideal. You will find that one P.E. coordinator can handle 30 kids, age 10 and under for thirty minutes or ages 11 and older, 60 students for 15-20 minutes.
You will find that by holding several QUIX STIX introductory classes that follow the curriculum primer on video use, introductory trixs, games and competitions that you will be able to generate enthusiasm and sales. The standard sell through sales ratio has traditionally been three out of five kids.
During the introductory classes, the students are made aware that the QUIX STIX will be made available for purchase after the introductory classes are completed. Flyers are sent home (see sample flyers) which enable the school to set money collection dates and get parental approval where applicable.
QUIX STIX allows you to purchase the QUIX STIX in a fund raising drive for $10.00 per unit based upon C.O.D. delivery and freight to your school. This enables you to set a selling price to your students based upon their ability to pay, as well as the target monies you are hoping to raise. The list value of the product is between $14.95 - $19.95. Your school wins because it can raise between $5.00 - $10.00 per unit in the process. Multiply this amount times three-fifths of the students and you can derive the projected revenue which can be realistically expected.
The core of the Unassisted QUIX STIX Fund Raiser is the enthusiasm and promotion that the appointed coordinator generates with the students. By following the QUIX STIX Training Program, you will be able to realistically expect substantial results.
Assisted Fund Raising
QUIX STIX has an experienced QUIX STIX demonstration team that can assist you in you're fund raising. The Assisted Fund Raising Program features all of the same elements executed approximately the same way with the following exceptions: When 100 students have expressed an interest in purchasing QUIX STIX; contact QUIX STIX to schedule a demonstration/teach-in. QUIX STIX will dispatch a master to your school for one day of teaching and demonstration. Preferably an assembly can be called and the QUIX STIX master demonstrator can put on a show which will last approximately 30 minutes.
We provide the QUIX STIX master to you at our cost which is $175.00 per day plus travel expenses from the last school visited. This travel expense will not exceed $1500.00 anywhere in the continental United States. Travel expenses must be 50% paid for in advance of scheduled demonstration.
QUIX STIX's universal acceptance by schools has proven the general worth of QUIX STIX as a truly constructive, as well as fun hand-eye coordination game. We know that QUIX STIX are a great way to keep kids entertained while enhancing their motor skills. QUIX STIX is also an effective tool in the fight against obesity and finally QUIX STIX can also be used as an advanced training device for athletes.
The QUIX STIX Fund Raising programs provide your school with an ideal vehicle to raise money without the inertia often associated with older methods and without the cavities too from Candy sales.

To Quix Stix
The Quix Stix instructional program conducted by your company in the spring of 1984 was commendable. You and the young men you brought with you did a very good job of working with the students at Lake Grove Elementary. It was very enjoyable for the staff and me to watch the development of hand and eye coordination of the students as they grew in their ability with the Stix.
