To win, between now and November 7th Smart Start has to get the most donations to its cause (every person can donate once per day and have it count as a unique donation). Smart Start can also win daily awards of $1,000 and $500 if it can get 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 the cause. We all need to come together and start promoting the cause if we want Smart Start to win.
Each of us has tons of friends on Facebook who we can ask to donate to the cause. But let’s think big too-can you put the 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. I can’t think of a better way to do that than to share this video by Dr. Jack Shonkoff.
I think Smart Start can do it! But it’s going to take all of us!
Let’s win $50,000 for our cause!
