Come on ladies, let’s join together and reach out to all of our friends, family, coworkers, exes, and even those random Facebook friends you still have in your list from High School because if we can collectively raise $2,000 between July 23rd and August 6th Gallagher Benefit Services has promised to double our $2,000. (Anyone can make a donation to help us earn the match by clicking here.)
That’s right – we can earn 2012 Women Build a free $2,000 just be banding together and making the ask to our networks – for a total donation of $4,000!
So we’re asking you to reach out and have the community help us earn that extra donation to 2012 Women Build. Don’t hesitate to ask those you’ve already asked, or those that have already given. In fact, we’ve even written a little something to get you started:
I’m asking you to help me earn a $2,000 donation to Flower City Habitat for Humanity 2012 Women Build home. Right now we’re in the final stages of building a house with Habitat homeowner Casandra and her daughter Arianna in Rochester, NY. My fellow Women Build teammates and I have helped raise funds and pound nails on this home, but we are still $25,000 short of funds for completing the home.
Fortunately Gallagher Benefit Services has stepped in to help, pledging an extra $2,000 donation to the home if we can raise $2,000 between now and August 6th.
And this is where I need your help – If you can give, please make a donation to my page (Enter your URL here) by August 6th.
And if you already have given, thank you so much for helping us come so far! Won’t you consider adding $5 or $10 to your donation so that we can achieve our match.
Thanks for supporting me in building this home for a single mother in Rochester!
If we all make as many asks as we can, we’re SURE we can earn this extra $2,000. It’s only going to take each of us gaining a pledge of $20 to exceed what we need for the match.
And Gallagher Benefit Services is going to be asking too. They’re forming a Women Build team as we speak to not only help us raise more funds, but also to help us finish building the house. Let’s welcome them to the 2012 Women Build family.
