Month of Awareness 2020

The SWF Month of Awareness, May, is less than two months away.

This is our opportunity to educate and spread awareness.  

To download a copy of the poster and a selfie photo frame you can use on social media, click on the links above.

Even though it’s the 21st century with so much advanced technology and vehicles for communication, SWS is still unknown to so many.  Education and awareness eliminates fear and stigmas. Did you know that your own personal story is the best advertisement for our cause?  May is your month to share your story in your community, through social media, holding a fundraiser or simply hanging the SWF Month of Awareness poster for the public to see. We can change the face of SWS, together.

This year, we have given you the opportunity to personalize it by adding a photo of your family!  Simply tape or glue a photo in the designated area of the poster.  Ask your community coffee shop, school or grocery store if you can hang the poster at their location.

 

Month of Awareness Fundraising - JustGiving | SWF’s New Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Platform

Check it out!  As of January, 2020, SWF has a new peer-to-peer fundraising platform - JustGiving.  This new platform is much more robust, integrates directly with SWF’s donation database (no more manual entry), saving time and money and allows the fundraiser to personalize their own page, push out to social media platforms, or copy and paste links in emails, and invite others to fundraise with you.

It’s very simple to use, with step by step instructions.  You have your own personal fundraising account page that you can update and use over and over again for different fundraising events. 

The best advantage to this new platform is, SWF is provided with the names of donors so we may acknowledge their support.  Facebook fundraising is great,
unfortunately, we cannot capture donor information for acknowledgements on their Network for Good platform.

We encourage you to try JustGiving, then push your personal fundraising page to your Facebook page.   Whatever method you use, we appreciate everything you do.  What you do, however you do it, touches the lives of others experiencing similar life journeys.  We are grateful to be a part of it with you.
