AMERICA'S GIVING CHALLENGE - The Neuroendocrineimmune (NEI) Center
P.A.N.D.O.R.A.'s cause on Facebook is The NeuroEndocrineImmune (NEI) Center -
Our cause is in America's Giving Challenge—Let's win $50,000!
Our cause just entered in America's Giving Challenge, which gives us a chance to win $50,000! To win, between now and November 7th we have to get the most donations to our cause (every person can donate once per day and have it count as a unique donation). We can also win daily awards of $1,000 and $500 if we can get the most people to donate in any 24-hour period. The great thing about this Challenge is that it doesn't matter how much you give, but instead how much you do to encourage friends and family to get involved in our cause. We all need to come together and start promoting the cause if we want to win.
A $10 donation is what I am asking to all of PANDORA's members, my family, my friends, my colleagues and our corporate supporters. Please do it NOW, because competition is fierce and we need to have what they call "unique donations", which means donations made by different individuals every day. The challenge will run from Oct 7 to November 6. The clock is ticking.
Each of us has tons of friends on Facebook who we can ask to donate to our cause. But let's think big too—can you put our cause in your email signature, can you throw a party and get people to donate through the cause when they enter, can you organize other people to go out and fundraise from all of their friends? As you reach out to your friends be sure to tell them why this cause matters to you. The possibilities are endless so let's talk about what we can do to win on the Wall of the cause or by replying to this bulletin.
I think we can do it! But it's going to take all of us. Check out the Giving Challenge ( www.causes.com ), then visit our cause to see how we're doing so far and get involved.
Let's win $50,000 for our cause!
