Whether you are running or just want to help raise more funds to help change more children’s stories!
You can create your own peer-to-peer page to raise funds and awareness! To sign up go or learn more, go here.
Go to https://bit.ly/SH5Kraisefunds and click on Set Up Your Fundraiser.
You can either join a fundraising team that’s already part of the event or start your own fundraiser to raise funds for Guardian Ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay.
If you are starting your page, you will be asked to sign up and create a Fundraiser Title, set a goal and write a brief description of your event.
You can upload a photo or a video if you want to personalize your fundraising page as well. Once your page is set up, you will be able to send information via email, Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter, post updates, see who has made donations and thank donors. It’s super easy and every dollar makes a difference!
Then click Create Page.
Once you have registered, we will send you stories and pictures that you can use if you would like to post on social media and/or use in email solicitations. You can pick and choose which ones you want to post and how many times you post as well.
Here is some text from our page you can edit and cut and paste. Or tell people why you are for the child.
We need your help to raise awareness of the issues of abused and neglected children as well as to raise funds to provide resources for children in our local community, such as: basic needs like beds, clothing, uncovered medical expenses, tutoring and school supplies as well as extracurricular activities that allow kids to be kids. Just in the first quarter of this year, we have seen an 87% increase in the needs of the children we serve. More children than ever before (since 2008) are coming into foster care with more complex needs and their stay in care is longer. We need your help to meet this demand!
Runners will join us on Saturday, October 12, 2019 along the beautiful Safety Harbor Waterfront to run in honor of children who have been removed from their home by no fault of their own, but you can help just by donating here or starting your own fundraiser and getting sponsors to pledge dollars for your efforts to help abused children-whether you walk in person or virtually.
$25 provides emergency clothing, $50 provides infant needs like strollers, car seats, or diapers and formula, $100 provides a laptop or other educational supports for our teens, $250 provides an extra-curricular activity to let kids be kids or tutoring to help a child who has fallen behind in their schoolwork.
There are over 3,000 children in Pinellas and Pasco Counties removed each year from their home by no fault of their own. Our Volunteers Child Advocates are the voice for the child in court and ensure their needs are met and their case does not fall through the cracks of a challenged system. Not everyone has the time or the heart to be a Volunteer Child Advocate but YOU can be a SUPERHERO in the life of a child just by donating to our upcoming race or starting your own fundraiser.
100% of your funds will be used to further the mission of the Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay. Thank you in advance for your consideration. Your support helps us achieve our vision of a world where every child has a safe and permanent home with the opportunity to thrive. Together, we can make a difference in the life of a child.
Thank you for all you do!
