PHH Awareness & Giving Day
Saturday April 8, 2017
PHH Awareness & Giving Day is coming up on Saturday April 8. Help us create awareness and raise money to further the Project Helping Hands mission by reaching out to your personal network of friends, family, colleagues and business contacts. All donations made to your fundraising page for this appeal, if you plan on future missions, will count towards the minimum donation on your next trip (valid for trips signed up by April 8, 2018).
Start with a fundraising page
To request a personalized fundraising page, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information:
- Your name as you would like to appear on the page
- A photo of yourself preferably participating in a mission
- Your fundraising goal amount – we suggest a minimum goal of $1,000
We’ll email you a link to your page when it’s ready.
Share the page with your personal contacts
One of the easiest ways to connect with a larger group of contacts is to use email and social media. To help, we’ve drafted a donation request email template for you to use. Just copy, paste and fill in the blanks with your personal information. Feel free to edit/personalize it as much as you want. Don’t forget to include the link to your fundraising page.
As you know, I participate in medical missions with the Project Helping Hands organization. I am reaching out to you today to ask for your financial support to help further the volunteer efforts and missions trips happening through PHH. We are a non-affiliated, not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing sustainable healthcare and education programs to people in developing countries, through culturally sensitive adventure. Over the past 20 years PHH volunteers like myself have:
- Treated and provided preventive health education for more than 200,000 patients
- Provided health education and training for thousands of local health care providers
- Performed more than 100 surgical procedures
- Collected and distributed medical and pharmaceutical supplies valued at more than $10million
April 8, 2017 is Project Helping Hands Awareness and Giving Day, and we need your help to raise money to support these efforts and more. Your tax-deductible donations help fund trip expenses, trip safety, administrative functions, daily operations and identification of new volunteer opportunities.
