Facebook has a cool thing going for Giving Tuesday. On November 29th, the first $1000 raised is matched (thanks Gates Foundation!) and processing fees will be waived.
Soooooo, we’re inviting Norte! fans to create a fundraiser on their FB page on behalf of the Estrellas, our learn to ride program for preschoolers using balance bikes. We’re excited to grow the program to 4 schools this winter (hopefully all of the in town schools in the near future too) but need more balance bikes and little helmets.
Here’s How It Works:
1. On the main FB news feed page, click “Create Fundraiser“, it’s near the bottom
2. Search for “Norte” and select us as the nonprofit
3. Title = “Giving Tuesday for Norte!”
4. Use one of these photos HERE as the cover:
or if you have one of your child, use that.
5. Story box: Get creative. Make it fun and personal.
Here’s some copy if helpful:
Help the Estrellas shine this Giving Tuesday. After a successful pilot last year, Norte!’s learn to ride program for preschoolers using balance bikes is growing. They are expanding to 4 Traverse City schools this winter and in need of more little helmets and balance bikes. 100% of Giving Tuesday donations will go to the Estrellas.
