  Pura Vida Fundraiser - Local Collection Drive Credit  
  Riley Duckworth  9/16/2022 10:00:00 AM  
     
 

Did you know that your FFA Chapter can sell the Illinois Association FFA Foundation Committee’s custom-designed Pura Vida Bracelets to raise funds for your Local Collection Drive? 

 

Chapters must sell AT LEAST 25 bracelets to receive credit towards their Local Collection Collection Drive.

 

Once your Chapter is credited for selling a minimum of 25 bracelets, your chapter will be credited $4 for every bracelet you have sold. That said, Chapters that are credited for selling 25 bracelets will be credited $100 for their Local Collection Drive.

 

Bracelets are $8.00 a piece and can be paid for and picked up at one of the following events:

  • Build Conference

  • Ground Zero Conference

  • Super Saturday

  • Illinois FFA Center

If you are interested in placing an order, please click here.

 

FAQ

  1. When are orders due? 

    1. The committee will be selling the bracelets throughout the entire year. The first batch of bracelets is expected to be delivered to the FFA Center in October. It is suggested to submit the pre-order form at least 2 weeks prior to your desired pick-up event so that we are able to guarantee that we have enough available to fulfill your order. The earlier you submit your order, the better, as the bracelets are custom designed and take 6-8 weeks to arrive.

  2. I selected Illinois FFA Center as my desired pick-up location. Now, what?

    1. Riley Duckworth will be in touch with you as soon as the first batch of bracelets is delivered to the Illinois FFA Center. Once you have heard from Riley, you are more than welcome to pick up your order any time during normal business hours.

  3. Will the committee be selling the bracelets in person at the listed events or do I have to submit an order form?

    1. Yes, the committee will be selling the bracelets in person at the listed events. However, we will be fulfilling all pre-orders first, which means we will only have a limited number of bracelets for sale at each event.

  4. My chapter has sold 35 bracelets. Do I need to complete a different order form for each bracelet sold? 

    1. No, we highly recommend chapters complete the form once for their entire order.

  5. I want to purchase a bracelet, but I am not sure if I will be at one of the listed events.

    1. On the pre-order form, you are able to list an individual that you would like to pick up your bracelet if you are unable to attend any of the events. Please note, that all bracelets must be paid at the time of pick up.
