We've Only Just Begun!

Dear %%First_Name%%,

Your Pennies for Patients program is kicking off! Hit the ground running by completing these important steps:

  • Collect and deposit donations at least once a week. (See page 11 of the Volunteer Guide for helpful tips.)
  • Post ongoing reminders about the online giving option in your school's e-newsletter, website, and social media pages. (See page 9 for examples of posts you can use.) Don't be afraid to ask for donations multiple times—everyone benefits from reminders!
  • Encourage students to create their online giving pages with their parents. Make school announcements that encourage students to use these pages to gather donations.
  • Start tracking progress on the school-wide thermometer chart and proudly display it!

We think you and everyone at %%School_Name%% are kind of a big deal! Thanks for all you're doing to make blood cancers a thing of the past.
