‘Friend-to-Friend Thanks for Giving’ Appeals

Goal: $20,000
Amount raised to date: $12,251
Number of new donors: 133

You know how people will take part in a walk or run or ride event to benefit a particular good cause, and their friends sponsor their effort by making a donation to an agency on behalf of that cause?

HfH is now in the midst of our first, end-of-year ‘virtual event’ to benefit our service of providing lodging and caring support to patient-families coming to Greater Philadelphia for critical medical care.

In particular, between now and January 31 we are inviting people to participate in our event by registering, creating a personal appeal page and then publicizing their appeal to their friends, family and peers from our site via email and Facebook.

The complete process takes about 30 minutes.
