All non-profits have stories to tell about the impact that they make in the lives of those that they help. These stories create compelling reasons for others to want to help. Use the stories of your impact to drive your supporters to act. When asking your peers, champions, and community to help by collecting bags with 25 pairs of shoes in each, share a compelling story of the impact that your efforts have had in and on the lives of others. Make the connection between giving gently worn, used and new shoes and the lives that will be improved because of the success of your shoe drive fundraiser.
Your fundraising coach can help you with this and many other ideas. Please communicate with them weekly.
