At the Butter Braid® brand, you know we love to “Share the Good” and support local causes with our amazing pastries. That’s why we chose to focus this month’s “Dealership Spotlight” on a business owner that goes out of his way to make a difference. Terry Edwards believes true happiness is found in helping others. When he started Sweet T Fundraising 3 years ago, Terry wanted the business to do more than share great products or host successful fundraisers. He wanted to use it to share his love of giving with everyone in his community.
Terry Edwards always wanted to have his own business, but it couldn’t just be any business. He wanted to open a company that would allow him to spend his time helping others while also making a living. That’s when Terry learned about the Butter Braid brand and its unique mission of “Share the Good” by helping people raise money with their delicious products. This was a company that clearly valued people over profit which really stood out to him. Once he tasted his first Butter Braid Pastry, he knew this was the path for him. Terry opened Sweet T Fundraising in Savannah, Georgia on June 1, 2018.
Changes to the Dealership
Sweet T Fundraising added some new features to the business in the last three years, so it can continue to help groups make the most out of their fundraisers. The biggest change has been the addition of the online store. This new fundraising option allows sellers to promote their own personal online store link via email, text, or social media. Supporters can order and pay online using a credit card or mobile wallet. As a bonus, all deliveries are prepacked and organized by seller to keep the fundraising process as easy as possible. The online store has been a great way to spread the joy of giving to new groups in the area. Terry is very glad to have it as part of his fundraising program.
Sweet T Fundraising has done a lot to make their fundraisers as successful and easy as possible for groups. Terry says he does this because there is no greater joy, to him, then when a group leader says on delivery day, “This is the easiest fundraiser we’ve ever done.” That’s when he knows he’s truly meeting his goal of helping as many people as possible.
Since 2018, Terry has certainly helped a lot of groups in the Georgia area. Sweet T Fundraising has hosted fundraisers for groups raising money for uniforms, band equipment, gym mats, drinking fountains, mission trips, field trips, playground equipment, dance and theatre productions, and so much more. In only three years, he’s helped groups raise more than $330,000.
Group leaders really appreciate Terry’s attention to detail and devotion to their causes. Jenn D. from Savannah says, “Sweet T Fundraising offers amazing customer service from a representative who really takes the time to get to know his clients. We love Mr. Edwards, and we love Butter Braid Pastry products! A very helpful fundraising company!”
What Terry Wants You to Know
Every fundraiser is an opportunity for Terry to share his love of helping others with the people in his area. He says that, even when a fundraiser turns out to be small, it can turn into a larger opportunity in the future. Each fundraiser reaches new people that love Butter Braid Pastries and enjoy the feeling of giving back to the community. Terry says you never know when one of those people are going to want to run their own fundraiser and make it a huge success for their group. Even if they don’t want to run a fundraiser, individuals will often continue to support local causes by buying more Butter Braid Pastries the next time they get an opportunity. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, and Terry intends to continue sharing it with the people of Georgia for a long time to come.
The Butter Braid brand is happy to have Sweet T Fundraising as part of our fundraising family. Terry Edwards believes that it’s better to give than it is to receive, and he has built that belief into the very foundation of his business. This has allowed his groups to reach new heights with their fundraisers and introduce more people to the happiness you feel when you help others. If you’re a group in Georgia and want to run a fundraiser with Sweet T Fundraising, give Terry a call. His love of helping others will have you on the fast track to fundraising success.
