If you do not have a CrowdRise account, you will be asked to create one in order to join our campaign. Once you create an account, you will be brought to your campaign page that will look like a copy of AJR’s. All donations made through your page will be in support of your 613 Blitz.
Now you’ll want to personalize your page to tell your stories and share with your community how you will be participating in the 613 Blitz! To do so, click on your profile picture in the top right hand corner (There might be a default image there if you did not upload a profile picture). From there a drop down menu will appear – click ‘My Campaigns’. Hover your mouse over the 613 Blitz Campaign and click ‘Edit’. Once again, hover your mouse over the ‘Fundraiser Page’ and click ‘Edit’. Now you can personalize all parts of the page to tell your story about how you plan on participating and why.
Here is some language you may want to include:
I am very excited to be supporting the Academy for Jewish Religion in this campaign. AJR has been at the forefront of pluralistic Jewish education and has been an important leader in rabbinic and cantorial education for over sixty years. AJR has been working toward institutional accreditation for many years, and that goal is now within reach. Your support will help AJR reach this goal which will help provide even better for AJR students.
This campaign emphasizes AJR’s understanding of the importance of the whole person, recognizing that we each need to exercise our minds, bodies, and souls. Please support my efforts and join me in supporting AJR’s very important work.
