Helene Schmid and her husband, Joseph Meli, help schools set up fund raising campaigns that involve selling poinsettias, chocolate bars and other products. "We want to sell 30,000 poinsettias this year," Schmid said. "So far we've sold 21,000." The Promotion Source acts as a middleman between local growers or gift manufacturers and schools or other groups that need to raise money. Schmid and Meli meet with officials from the school or group to learn more about their fundraising goals. "We ask what kind of neighborhood are you in, how many kids are in the school, what do you like about fund raising, what do you not like," Schmid said, adding that she has noticed some patterns to the answers. "No one likes to fund raise. We have schools that have to raise money for paper and for teachers' assistants. The company started the poinsettia promotion a few years ago when Schmid and Meli built a house in Brighton, They visited a local nursery to buy plants, but the nursery turned them down because they only sold wholesale. "The guy said, 'We've been trying to get into the schools for 6 years,"' Schmid said. The couple never did get shrubbery for their home, but their company eventually started a Colorado Plant Festivals promotion in which plants are sold in the spring to benefit nonprofits such as Ronald McDonald House and the Special Olympics. The Promotion Source also sells food items such as salsa, fudge and honey. "What we look for is what people will buy anyway," Schmid said. Schmid and Meli moved to Colorado in 1989 from Long Island, N.Y. Schmid had worked for the American Kidney Fund In New York, setting up major fund raising events.
