Use QR Code Stickers to Raise Money for Little League Baseball Expenses

Parents throughout the country are wondering how they are going to keep up with the rising costs of baseball gear for their Little League players this year. In decades past, children were able to play in leagues with little more than a glove and a helmet. But as one major online retailer shows, the average cost for youth baseball equipment can add up rather quickly.

Some parents have no problem coming up with the bucks for these kinds of expenses, which is great for their children. But what about the children whose parents can’t afford to throw a lot of extra money around?

Shouldn’t all children be offered the same opportunities to play in the local youth baseball league, without pressure being put on parents who can’t afford it to come up with extra funds for extravagant expenses? The answer is simple. Yes, they should.

How to Help a Little Leaguer Out

What can you do to balance the budget for your Little League baseball players? Whether you’re a parent, a coach, or just a mate, you can help raise money for your favorite youth baseball players with ease and with class. Follow these three simple steps to put the ball in play for your team.

Step 1. We live in a high-tech world. The first step for any marketing programme should be to set-up a website. Set up a simple, user-friendly website, and give people an easy, one-click way to donate to your team.

Step 2. Generate a one-of-a-kind, unique QR code that connects directly to your donations website. It’s incredibly easy to do, and it’s a fabulous way to attract people to your cause. Anyone with a smartphone (which, let’s face it, is A LOT of people) can scan your code, and they’ll be taken directly to your site.

Step 3. Print QR Code Stickers with your unique code, and stick them anywhere you can. If you already have other advertising media like posters or banners, stick these beauties on them, too!

Root For the Home Team

Put your QR Code Stickers up at places where parents, mates, family and fans are likely to see them, like local baseball fields where the teams play. This will make it easy for them to help out your Little League baseball players. All they have to do is scan your QR Code Sticker with their smartphone, and they can put their favorite little player back in the lineup.
