EVENT DATE: Nov 09, 2013
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Nov 08, 2013
Do you have $.25? Rummage around in your pocket, your purse, your couch cushions, your car cup holders. Chances are you found a quarter, and maybe a few pennies, too. Look at the change in your hand. That change is enough to make a change.
It only takes $.25 to produce, pack, and ship a meal that can be given to a hungry child somewhere in the world. That spare change in your hand is enough to make a difference.
HERE'S WHAT TO DO:
1) Get some friends together and create a team or choose to fundraise as an individual.
2) Create a fundraising page. Click "Set Up Your Fundraiser" to either join a team or create your own page. Personalize it, upload some pictures, make it as awesome as you are.
3) Set a goal. Need some guidance? For one person to feed a kid for a whole school year, it costs $65, so aim for that. Or blow us out of the water - the team or individual that raises the most money wins a special prize and bragging rights for the year.
4) Spread the word. Share your fundraising page on Facebook and Twitter. Email your family and friends and neighbors and that person you had lunch with last Tuesday. When a meal only costs 25 cents, literally every cent counts.
Find a quarter. Pack a meal. Make a difference.
We're here to help you every step of the way! As soon as you create a fundraising page, we'll be in touch and will answer any and every question you could ever think of. If you have any questions, email us at email@example.com.
Want to know more about Pack-A-Thon?
USC is partnering with Feed the Hunger to bring Pack-A-Thon to our campus. Participants at a Pack-A-Thon team together during a two hour shift to produce thousands of life saving meals for hungry children overseas. People ages 5 – 105 work to assemble together four ingredients: rice, soy protein, dehydrated vegetables, and a vitamin powder.
All it takes is you, two hours of your time, and your pledge to raise $65 dollars to help feed hungry children around the world. One person packs 240 meals in two hours - enough to feed a child for an entire school year.
