Check out all of our news on our Press page.
In 2012, we supported fundraising campaigns at a handful of Moncton-area schools. Students sold special 74-load packages of Dizolve door-to-door, and it was a huge success. 500 students from one school sold 2,500 packs of Dizolve in 10 days and raised over $10,000 for the school, making it one of the most successful fundraisers they had ever run. When we realized that 64-loads of the new Dizolve laundry detergent strips could be mailed in a small envelope at low cost, we knew we were on to something big. We recognized an opportunity to help schools and nonprofits fundraise on a much bigger scale. Fundraisers can take advantage of the power of email, Facebook, and other online tools to easily spread the word about their cause, and offer their supporters a great product that is needed on an ongoing basis. We are also very excited that we can offer a much more sustainable alternative to traditional laundry care products. Read more about our new fundraising program.
