Young Colusa Entrepreneur Fundraises for Youth Sports

081115 - Whiting Oragami OwlA Colusa Egling Middle School Student and a young entrepreneur started her ambitions with a roadside lemonade stand, and today she is climbing the ladder of success with Origami Owl.

12-year-old Kelsea Whiting began selling Origami Owl products in March and since then she has achieved ‘lead designer’ status. With all her hard work, she gets a little help from her grandmother Connie Adan.

“She came to me with the idea and I told her that I would help her out,” said Adan, “But she has been quite the business woman and is making a name for herself.”

Whiting hosted her first book party and exceeded her expectations, bringing over $1,000 in sales.

“I have always loved jewelry and Origami Owl,” said Whiting, “Bella, the company owner is a young person and is inspiring.”

In just a few weeks, Whiting was selling products and hosting mega hostess’s parties and jewelry bars.

“It is a lot of fun,” said the 12-year old entrepreneur.

As her success continues to grow, Whiting wanted to give back to her community and started a fundraiser to benefit the Colusa Youth Football, Youth Football Cheer Squad, and the Colusa High School Football and Cheer Squad.

“I am on the Youth Football Cheer Squad and I know how much the coaches spend out of their own pockets to help with the expenses,” said Whiting, “I wanted to help and give back.”

Whiting will be offering design special packages that are customizable, and the proceeds will benefit the youth football and cheer programs.

Adan and Whiting will host a Fundraising Launch Party on Thursday, August 20, 2015, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Round Table Pizza in Colusa.

Can’t make it to the party? No problem! Sales will continue through the last Colusa High School HOME  game where Whiting will be available to take orders.

“If every team member sold just one locket, I would reach my fundraising goal,” said Whiting.

However, she remains optimistic that she will have multiple sales per team member.

“The lockets make great gifts for moms, grandmothers, aunts, etc., who want to show their support for their kid,” said Whiting, “and there are lots of options to choose from, making each one unique.”

As Whiting embarks on her biggest challenge yet, her goal is to attend the 2016 Origami Owl Convention in Florida.

To get in touch with Whiting about ordering for the fundraiser, or to learn more information about Origami Owl, contact Connie Adan at (530) 301-4565.
