If you are registering a minor under 18 years of age, please complete and submit a Media Release Form and return to Jayna Hoffacker via email at [email protected] or mail to: Archdiocese of Atlanta, ATTN: Jayna Hoffacker, 2401 Lake Park Drive SE, Smyrna, Georgia 30080.
As part of your participation in Helping Hands, we want to challenge you to raise $200 to help us cover the cost of these 150,000 meals as well as much-needed development aid for Burkina Faso. At 50 cents per meal, about half of which goes directly to development aid, our Helping Hands meal packing will cost $75,000. Without your financial support, the Archdiocese of Atlanta cannot continue to host this event.
But this is the easy part! All you need to do to kick off your Helping Hands fundraising challenge is share the link to the fundraising page that will be created just for you when you register. You can set your goal and customize your page with your own message and photos. Then, just share the link! Email it to friends, post it on social media. You will be amazed at how quickly you can reach $200 – and beyond!
How To Share Your Fundraising Page
You’re registered for Helping Hands at the Eucharistic Congress, now what? Log in at http://crs.donordrive.com with the email address and password you set when you registered for the event.
To customize your fundraising page, click on the “View Your Page” link in the Your Fundraising box on the left side of the page. Now you can edit your fundraising page using your own words and images! Have you packed meals at the Eucharistic Congress before? Share your experience, post your photos; let your friends and family know how participating has had an impact on you.
Next, share your link! On the left side of the page, you will see an Ask Friends to Donate box. Just click on any of the icons – email, Facebook, Twitter, and/or LinkedIn and share! You can also copy and paste your link from your Account page to any other social media platforms you use.
Find out if your employer has a donation matching program. Many companies will match an employee’s donation to 501c3 non-profit organizations.
Form a team with friends, families, fellow parishioners, or co-workers to maximize your fundraising opportunities. You can register as a team of up to 8 on the event registration page. If you have a group larger than that, contact Jayna at [email protected] with the names and contact information of your team members.
