Yesterday, on my way out of the office, I did a double take. There on the windowsill was one of the more striking pieces I’ve seen here. The box was made of natural wood and had a clear face front for display. Usually, the clear front display is used to slip a sheet of information about the fundraising effort and its goals or a medallion of support.
This charity box, though no different in content, was original in display. Someone had played around with the sheet and added dimensions to it. The Organization was Ohel, a local children’s home and family services. Part of the artwork included an exuberant toddler clapping his hands with joy. The toddler had been cut out and appeared almost three dimensional compared to the rest of the information. It was just a simple modification that completely transformed the collection box.
This collection box (WO-03) is actually a beautiful display piece that any fundraising organization would be proud to gift their donors. The display area is perfect for a medallion honoring their support. The sister box, (WO-04), another handsome box is unique in that there are two donation slots. This allows your contributor to choose specific aspects of your cause the money should be allocated.
In either event, whichever box you choose, make sure to speak to Simon about how to display the information. He’s the one who came up with that simplistically striking design for Ohel.
