PHH Giving & Awareness Week
Monday May 20th-May 26th, 2019
Help us create awareness and raise money to further the PHH mission by reaching out to your personal network of friends, family, colleagues and business contacts. This campaign is aimed towards increased knowledge of the great work of PHH volunteers as well as fundraising for us to continue our efforts.
The week of May 20th, we will be posting daily messages on Facebook telling our volunteer's stories. Be sure to share these posts with your fundraising link to help our organization empower our volunteers to keep up the great work they are doing.
Start raising awareness and collecting donations now by creating a fundraising page and then sharing it with your contacts via email and social media.

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 may know, I volunteer with Project Helping Hands, a non-affiliated, not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing sustainable healthcare and education programs to people in developing countries. 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.
- Collected and distributed medical and pharmaceutical supplies valued at more than $10 million.
Today I am reaching out to ask for your financial support to help further the PHH mission. Giving & Awareness Week starts May 20th, and we need your help to raise money to support our efforts. Your tax-deductible donations help fund trip expenses, trip safety, communications among our volunteers and donors, administrative functions, daily operations and identification of new volunteer opportunities.

Tip: Send email and post a few times during the fundraising appeal. We know from experience that it sometimes takes a couple of reminders before a donation is completed.
