* 1 hour of administrative time is a realistic estimate. Essentially, all the group leader needs to do is to order the catalogs, hand them out to the participants, remind them a few times over the course of the sale when order forms are due, collect the order forms and then mail the order forms back to us in a pre-addressed, prepaid envelope. Tom-Wat Fundraisers will then ship the magazine subscription vouchers to the group leader. Each participant (seller) will have a package with their name on it that the group leader just hands out. It's that easy!
