Welcome to the 3rd annual Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna Women Build! This event puts the "fun" in "fun"draising. Last year, the teams raised $28,000 in 30 days during the month of April! Our goal this year is $35,000 in 30 days and we know, together, we can achieve it.
For those who are new to leading a team this year, don't worry. I'm here to help if you have any questions. Leading a team simply means you’ll find others to join your team, and you and your team will commit to donating, and sharing the link to your fundraising page with other people to meet the team goal of $3,500 per team.
Then your team will come out to volunteer with us on your designated build day during week leading up to Mothers Day. We take it from there – you'll enjoy a day of building, team building, pampering and fun (think breakfast, lunch, swag bags, raffles …).
The fundraising portion is made super easy because I set up an online fundraising page just for your team on this platform which you and your team will share through social media, and email throughout the month of April. Most donations will come in online through your team page, however, please let me know if someone wants to donate through a check or cash, I can enter it and credit to your team.
To raise the most money, once each team member personally donates, I strongly recommend sharing the link to your team page through social media and email during the first week of April. Then share the link again at least 2 more times in the month. That's it.
Share with family, friends, acquaintences, post on Social media. The donations truly come in virtually on their own because the team page tells the story for you. :-)
Teams are competing to see who can raise the most money (a little healthy competition ;-). The team which raises the most, receives their business name engraved on the “coveted” Tacky Hammer Award and displayed in your office for one year.
Each team member who donates and volunteers will receive a Women Build tee shirt. In order to ensure, we have your size, team counts and tee shirts sizes are due to Phyliss by March 20th the latest.
And most importantly, why do we do this? We do this because the money raised will help us continue providing a hand up, not out through affordable homeownership in Harford and Cecil Counties. And, affordable homeownership is the number one way to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. OH YEAH and to HAVE FUN!! :-)
We are still in need of event sponsors as well.
