There are some big things brewing at icouldbe.org! We’re getting really excited to kick-off a campaign next month that will bring online mentoring to students all over the country – and we’ll fill you in on the details soon. First, however, we thought we could get a head start.
We need YOUR help!
Maybe you have a supportive community at church, or a spirited school that holds monthly fundraisers. Maybe you belong to a fraternity or sorority, or work in a large office that has a community bulletin board.
Tell your community about icouldbe! Spread the word about online mentoring, and how mentors can help disadvantaged students graduate, go to college, and go on to careers. You could be an important part of our upcoming campaign – maybe raising $100, $200, even $500 (or more)!
Here are a few small ideas to raise money in your community:
- Put out a coffee can for donations at your school, your church, your work – and don’t forget to tell people why online mentoring is important. (Here’s a reminder!)
- Clean out your house and host an end-of-summer yard sale – then donate the proceeds.
- It’s still hot out there! Sell some lemonade with the kids.
- If there is a local upcoming event in your area, suggest that the benefits be donated – similar to this event from last month!
Any other ideas? If you are interested in finding out more about helping icouldbe, email Alicia at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if you can’t make a donation, spread around this blog post to your community – we really appreciate you taking the time to read our blog.
