5 Creative Ways To Make a Difference
During The COVID-19 Pandemic
Virtual Happy Hour
Community matters and it's important to stay in touch with friends and family despite not being able to physically meet-up.
Schedule a friend for a virtual happy hour or coffee date, and sip on a glass of wine or enjoy a nice cup of home-brewed coffee while catching up. You can then donate the amount of money you would have spent at the bar or coffee shop to HOW!
You've got talents and plenty of time on your hands. Use your social media accounts to advertise your skills and ask friends and family to purchase your homemade goods. It could be a funny greeting card, a special guide to making your perfect pesto, a home workout regime...you name it.
You can ask that people make a donation to HOW in lieu of payment!
Many people who have been training for 3, 5, or 10k run now find themselves without a race to participate in.
Well we say let the run go on (kind of)! While it may not be as exciting as the people-packed race you anticipated, we think you should go on a personal run for the distance you signed-up for. You can set up a crowdfunding page (directions below) and encourage friends and family to donate to HOW in support of your modified race.
No Shave Stay at Home Order
No-Shave-November? How about No-Shave-Stay-At-Home Order? Commit to not shaving until all Stay At Home orders have been lifted. You can create a crowdfunding page (directions below) and ask folks to support HOW as your charity of choice.
How to Set Up Your Own Crowdfunding Page
You can set up your fundraising goal directly from HOW’s goal page by clicking on the “Create My Own Fundraising Page” button. You will be emailed a link and can customize your page by updating your story, adding a photo, and creating a new individualized fundraising goal.
Be sure to check your junk or spam mail for the link to your customized page. It often gets sent to the spam/junk folder.
