When you register to raise funds from ink cartridges and electronics with Ink2Cash, we set up a special web site address — just for your cause — that you or your supporters can use directly to recycle items for your benefit.
When your supporters register on the site, their items are linked to your account, and they deal directly with us using our simple self-service options to send in their particular items.
Take a look at an example fundraising web site we set up for the fictional Example Charity.
Instead of collecting cartridges to a central location, and asking a member of staff or volunteer to spend their time organising everything, and sorting and sending the items to the various recycling facilities we use, it's much easier for us to work with the your supporters directly, as they can send their cartridges to the best destination the first time.
We call this hands-free fundraising as you don't have to get your hands inky — you just have to forward your supporters to this web site and we take care of the rest, with automated reporting and payments.
It saves precious admin time for you, your volunteers and staff
You don't need to find storage space to collect cartridges in.
Your supporters register on the site and get straight-forward instructions to send their items directly, which will be credited to your account.
Whatever items your supporters have, we're just a click away to help them personally by email if they have any queries.
Your supporters receive occasional email reminders to keep them sending, and update them with what we can recycle for your benefit
If they have items we can't take for reuse, we help them find a free recycling alternative for their particular cartridges
It's easier to get more of your supporters involved in recycling, as you only need to share a web site address with them
For supporters with larger quantities of items, we can arrange collections directly from them
Your supporters will receive thank you emails when their items are received and processed.
Your supporters can share your recycling fundraising campaign directly on social media like Facebook or Twitter using the special links we give them to reach a wide audience
Of course, how you direct your supporters to the site is up to you. You might use flyers in your locations or shops, sending a special announcement to your email list, or social media. This way you can reach many more people than collecting centrally.
