If you’ve been following the advice on this blog, you’ve cultivated a group of superstar fundraisers who are passionate about your organization and share that enthusiasm with their online networks. If you have fundraisers who love to spread the word about you via online campaigns, invite them to join Kevin Bacon’s Pepsi Refresh Project at Six Degrees! (This is an initiative of my organization, Network for Good, so - full disclosure - this is me wearing my Network for Good hat!)
When your superstars support your charity through this project, your organization will be featured on an interactive map at the Six Degrees website for the whole Six Degrees community to see. Participants can sign up at the Six Degrees website .
For the media launch of the Pepsi Refresh Project last February, Kevin Bacon and Demi Moore had a celebrity challenge on Facebook to garner support for their grant ideas. Kevin received a handsome grant from Pepsi to pay it forward with Good Cards – charity gift cards. Over the next few weeks, people can sign up to be a part of Kevin’s project. SixDegrees.org will be sending $10 Good Cards to 6,000 lucky participants and Kevin Bacon will be calling them with a special message to kick off the fun. In turn, Kevin will ask those participants to tell 6 friends about Good Cards and invite them to pay it forward with the gift of charity. We’re hoping to send a ripple of good across the country and amplify the impact of the grant.
Why not invite your supporters to participate? They will spend their Good Cards on your organization, of course.
