Message from Dean Kamen – E-Watt Saver Light Bulbs: Great news! To help you raise even more money for your teams from our ongoing and highly successful FIRST E-Watt Saver light bulb fundraiser program (you’re out there selling, I hope) — FIRST(R) is making this special, limited time offer: Now through November 30 ─ Buy one case of bulbs, get a second case absolutely FREE! (Teams must pay shipping on each case delivered.)
Wow…think about it…twice the revenue at half the cost! To boost sales, you can even set your own price on your free bulbs. This is a tremendous opportunity to help fund your team activities, so I urge you to take advantage of it. But you must act soon! This offer ends November 30 and will not be repeated.
For complete details, please visit: www.usfirst.org/e-wattresources. Order today…and happy selling!
