We are launching a new fundraising effort and need your help. It is a critical time right now for the PVs, otherwise we wouldn't be asking for your help so soon after the appeal went out. It is our hope that the PV 40 challenge will engage people outside of the PVs.
PV 40 CHALLENGE: In celebration of entering our 40th year as a program, the PV 40 Challenge is asking for 40 teams (they can be an individual, group or organization) to try to raise $250. If we get 40 teams raising $250 a team, that would bring in $10,000, roughly the amount needed to fill our financial gap. The flyer lists some ideas for events that are simple and ask as little as a $7 donation. What we would like is for the people to reach outside of the PV Community and try to get some friends, families and coworkers involved, much like the "Live with Passion." The volunteers already give so much to our program, that we wanted to come up with an idea that would bring in other people.
If you would like a PV 40 Challenge information sheet or a booklet that can be used at events to inform people more about who the PVs are and what we do, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will send them you way. As groups are formed please let us know so we can post it on this blog. We would like to show the progress of our effort on the way to the $10,000 goal. If possible, we would like all events to take place by December 1st.
Thanks for your continued support and generosity to the PVs!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
