Using the Walk for Hope to Fund Raise for a Charity

The Walk for Hope is about bringing the community together and inspiring service, but we also hope it can be used as an instrument for non-profits to spread awareness, and for Walkers to introduce their loved ones to the causes they feel most passionately about.

Below is an email that one of our Walkers, Chelsea, sent to her friends and family about the charity she has chosen to support.  If you are interested in fundraising for a charity, you can use her message as a template.

Hey there!

On October 17, 2009, I’ll be participating in the 8th Annual Walk for Hope. It’s from 9am – 1pm at El Dorado East Regional Park in Long Beach, CA.  For the walk, I’ll be fundraising (similar to a walk-a-thon) for my absolute FAVORITE non profit organization, INVISIBLE CHILDREN.  You can check them out at if you haven’t heard about them, or you can join me at Goldenwest College on Monday, September 21, 2009 for an introduction documentary and a Q & A Session for our International Day of Peace event.

My profile’s link for the Walk for Hope is  From MY personal profile page you guys will be able to find a link to the charity I am supporting and after making a pledge you will be directed to the charity’s website to make the actual donation.

If you have any questions at all, please let me know! Thanks in advance!
