NOT A GOOD GRANT WRITER...GROW YOUR OWN FUNDS

Not a writer?  Not a problem.  NEW-LIFESTYLES offers other ways for you to raise funds to buy pedometer kits for your school or organization without having to put pen to paper. 

We can set you up to start your own fool-proof fundraising campaign.  We'll sell you the best of the hairspring pedometers for as low as $5, and then you can sell them for $10, $15, or even $20 to maximize your profits. Then, turnaround and use those profits to purchase a kit of top-of-the-line NEW-LIFESTYLES pedometers the - SW-200, SW-401, SW-651, or SW-701 DIGI-WALKER pedometers or the NL-800, NL-1000, or NL-2000 NEW-LIFESTYLES accelerometers. Or, if you need pedometer program materials or an activity and nutrition tracking website, you can use your profits for that too!

It's that easy.  Pedometers are infectious and easy to sell.  Get your students, parents, and the whole community involved in your efforts to encourage physical activity and healthy lifestyles.  Every BODY can benefit!
