Help your favorite local nonprofit (St. Mary's Food Bank)with these fun and easy tips
You don’t have to be flush with cash to make a difference during Arizona Gives Day. Here
are three ways you can help your favorite organization succeed without adding an extra
zero to your own check.
1. Share on social media
If there’s a cause you’re passionate about, don’t keep it to yourself — spread the word to family and friends on your social media pages. And don’t just ask them to give, but share the reasons why a certain nonprofit is near and dear to your heart. Do you have a family member battling addiction? Do you work with underprivileged kids? Were you helped by a nonprofit at some point in your life? Sharing these types of stories help to remind people
of the important work that nonprofits do.
2. Make it a competition
A friendly one, of course. Challenge your friends to a little game — have everyone choose a charity that’s participating in Arizona Gives Day and then compete to see who can bring in the most bacon by choosing a participating nonprofit and creating a Fundraising Page. Bonus: Those who don’t win must donate to the winner’s charity of choice.
3. Join the movement
In the months leading up to the big day, add the Arizona Gives Day hashtag (#AZGivesDay)to your social posts and online discussions about community activism. Instead of highlighting lack of funding for schools or the need for more community gardens, offer solutions by raising awareness for Arizona Gives Day. Share the names of participating nonprofits people may donate to. If you have a blog, use that platform to explain why donating on Arizona Gives Day can make a big difference, and encourage your readers to take part.
St. Mary's Food Bank serves to alleviate hunger through the gathering and distribution of food while encouraging self-sufficiency, collaboration, advocacy and education.
