Announcing the launch of our GlobalGiving campaign!
We are excited to announce that we were selected to participate in a fundraising challenge through the GlobalGiving Campaign, a prestigious crowd-sourcing website. The minimum challenge is to raise $10,000 between November 25th and December 1st from a minimum of 40 individual donors.
If we meet the challenge, we not only provide funding for our program for 2014, but also secure ourselves a permanent spot on the GlobalGiving site. Global Giving provides fundraising trainings, resources, matching gifts and grants to the organizations on the site, and it would be a major boost for us to be a permanent organization on the site! There are bonus prizes for the organizations who raise the most money and who have the most individual donors, so we’re going for that too!
How do I help?
1. Make a donation. Smaller gifts help us more toward our 40 donor total; larger gifts help us more toward the $10,000 total! It all adds up! And the more we get, the closer we get to the bonus prizes! All donations are tax-deductible.
2. Share with your friends, family and contacts who would support the life-changing work we do. This will just take a minute, and each person who learns about our program can become a supporter, volunteer, or even a future camper. To share our campaign on Facebook, just go to our campaign page and click “share” or “tweet”!
3. Share with your friends in an email and ask them to support the work we do! Please see here for a sample email you can send your contacts!
Your support helps make it possible for us to continue to train hundreds of teenagers to make a difference in the world.
Thank you so much for all you do!
