The National Inclusion Project has entered America's Giving Challenge, which gives a top prize of $50,000! To win, between now and November 7th, the Project has to get the most donations to our cause (every person can donate once per day between 3pm and 2:59pm the next day and have it count as a unique donation). There are also daily awards of $1,000 and $500 for the most people to donate in any 24-hour period. The great thing about this Challenge is that it doesn't matter how much you give, but instead how much you do to encourage friends and family to get involved in our cause. We all need to come together and start promoting the cause if we want to win.
Everyone has tons of friends on Facebook, message boards, and email lists who you can ask to donate to the cause. But think big, too—can you put our cause in your email signature, can you throw a party and get people to donate through the cause when they enter, can you organize other people to go out and fundraise from all of their friends? As you reach out to your friends be sure to tell them why this cause matters to you. The possibilities are endless so let's talk about what we can do to win on the Wall of the cause or by emailing the Project your idea (firstname.lastname@example.org).
It's going to take all of us to do it! Check out the Giving Challenge (www.causes.com), then visit thecause to see how we're doing so far and get involved.
Let's win $50,00 for our cause!
