Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
A new era in school fundraising has dawned for Adams Elementary. The schools Parent Teacher Association has decided to use Safelist.coms secure platform to help raise $5,000 for the Schools summer program.
An Adams Elementary school PTA board member, Ms. Wendy Mirbod reached out to a San Diego-based company, Safelist.com for assistance. The companys unique trading platform is also being used by Roosevelt Elementary, another local school.
Were committed to providing our communities with a safer, online marketplace and helping Adams PTA raise money on our platform made eminent sense, said Safelists founder, Karim Pirani.

Community members may choose to donate any percentage of the transactions proceeds to the school of their choice and 100 percent of the proceeds go to support the kids. Additionally, during the month of April, Safelist will donate $1 to each newly registered users school of choice.
In the wake of State budget cuts, their platform makes it easy and painless for our community members to roll up their sleeves and help our school provide crucial programs, said Mirbod.
