When my birthday rolled around this year, I was asked by my family and friends “What do you want for your birthday?” It took me just seconds to come up with a fundraising effort for 3HopefulHearts. Knowing how invaluable this wonderful organization has been by supporting me and lifting me up since my son’s death made my decision to include them in my birthday fundraising was exactly What I wanted. The response I received from my Facebook friends and family was incredible. We surpassed the target amount and everyone was so thrilled to be able to participate in something meaningful to me, to them and to others who have and continue to receive their love and kindness through a most difficult journey of healing from a child loss.
- Local Businesses: Restaurants, bars, and creative, artistic businesses often hold community events where proceeds go to a non-profit. Ask a manager and your favorite place to hang out to see if they offer this option.
- Social Media:
- Facebook fundraisers are very popular for birthdays or special occasions.
- Our own database, Network for Good, also helps you host an event using social media, and they take less of a percentage than Facebook!
- Garage Sales: Every summer, we see garage sales all around the community. Maybe you hold your own, or maybe your get a group of friends to all bring items, advertise for a large garage sale where proceeds will go to support 3Hopeful Hearts, and we send you some advertising materials, posters, brochures, etc.
- Themed House Party: invite your friends to gather at your home around a themed party. Hold an auction, a raffle, or some sort of fun way to raise money. You bring in vital funds, but you also raise awareness of our cause and spread the word of who we are, and that is just as important to our success! We can even provide posters, brochures, cards, or show up to speak about our cause.
- And so much more!
Need some guidance and direction. Reach out to 3Hopeful Hearts and we can get you started!
