Season on hold? Here's how sports parents are continuing to earn for next season during the time-out

Apr 06 2020

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

Seasons may be paused, Schools may be closed... but that doesn’t mean we should stop planning and earning for when things get back to normal. With our Personal Account feature, you can still use FlipGive on everything you need for your quarantine life. Elizabeth G, proud hockey mom of two, tells us how she’s using her Personal Account in the times of COVID-19 and how it’s helping her get ready for when her season resumes.

In your own words, how would you describe the Personal Accounts feature?

I have been a big fan of the Personal Account feature since it launched, I usually use it during the off-season. When my team closed, I activated my Personal Account and kept shopping like usual with FlipGive. When my new season started, I transferred all the funds to my new team. Now that most seasons and sports activities are on hold, it’s a great way to keep earning for when the seasons start back up.

How do you use FlipGive in the current situation?

Many families, including ours, are working and studying from home. And, that can lead to a lot of chaos. Our family has had to readjust our routines - change the way we were doing things. I buy many of my groceries and cleaning supplies online with FlipGive.  I think a lot of parents can relate to this since they don’t want to venture far from home. My husband and I have also set up individual work and study stations so we can operate comfortably.  I ordered a proper desk chair to help me keep comfortable through the day. And, for the kids, a few new board games and books to keep them busy while on conference calls. 

Can you withdraw your funds from your Personal Account?

No. The money you earn back using your Personal Account is meant to be transferred to your next team in order to be able to withdraw them.

What happens with your funds when you need to create a new team?

That’s when the fun part happens! When it’s time to raise for a new team, you can transfer the funds accrued from your Personal Account to the team of your choice in one click.  

On Elizabeth’s list: 

  • Working from home essentials: furniture, planning essentials, organization systems
  • Entertainment for the kids: video games, board games, books, puzzles, streaming services
  • Home training gear: trainers, yoga mats,  resistance bands

Other Teams loving Personal Accounts

“Spotlight Dance Company is an amazing place. They are a family-run studio and instill positive values in all of the dancers in everyday ways. They are incredibly supportive and positive, while at the same time providing top-notch dance instruction. Their motto is "where everyone shines". This year our PreCompetitive and Competitive teams have come together with the new mantra, 'One Team One Dream' in terms of fundraising and all-round team spirit. This is our second year using FlipGive and its success continues to grow. We passed our $3000 goal recently and still have a few months to keep earning. I personally love that I can have a personal FlipGive account as well to continue earning funds during the summer months then transfer it to our dance team in the fall. It makes it so easy!”

    I read this article with great interest. Indeed, during periods of interruption it is very difficult to organize your activities and continue earning. Our family even had to change their daily life to do so. For example, I began to devote most of my time to programming. I had difficulties with it before, but this article https://www.justwebworld.com/best-lessons-one-can-learn-from-failure-in-programming-assignment/ helped me to learn a lesson from the failures. I was able to understand what mistakes I was making in programming, and I am gradually getting rid of them. This period is especially difficult for children, because my wife and I are focused on work and have less time for them. But with their studies they are doing fine on their own. The older son recently shared with me that he finds useful articles for studying https://b.cari.com.my/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=5039513&extra=page%3D1 . He said that users there share helpful resources and give cool tips. I should check it out here, too.

    When it comes to writing assignments and you don't have time, you either need to be superhuman or ask for help from professionals. So I chose the second option and found best coursework writing service after which I managed to submit all the completed tasks to my professor. I got really good grades. And of course I ran into a compliment from the professor that I am a superman!

    I've been thinking for a long time about choosing my university. I was afraid of choosing the wrong profession and unfortunately it happened. I have a hard time with a lot of subjects so I have to use Assignment Geek. It helps me with my coursework. My friend recommended this service and I have been using it for a long time.

    You can choose an author based on their expertise. If you have a tight deadline or an unusual topic, you can choose an academic expert from among the available writers. You won't be charged any extra for this and your paper will be written according to the requirements. The best college essay writing service will offer you a refund if you're not happy with their work. Just make sure the writer meets all the requirements and is willing to go the extra mile.

    Tbh, It's much fun to study remotely than in college because I love to travel and buy essays from websites like https://youracademicwriter.com/do-my-assignment and few more. It helps me get a custom written essay and research paper which can be useful for writing them and submitting it for my professor, having a work and life balance and the life goes on happily as far as now.

    In fact, it is much more convenient to study remotely than in school, given that I also work remotely, since my profession is related to IT. This way I just attend classes and buy homework, like essays https://www.essayontime.com/write-your-essay-for-you/ that helps me feel quite normal, having a work-life balance.
