BENEFITING: Nomi Network
Turning 20 this year, I felt like extending the celebration of my birthday beyond partying and into something that could help others, while also engaging myself and my friends and family. I am also curious how fundraising will be treated here in mid-Sweden, where I come from.
Spending the fall of 2013 volunteering with Nomi Network was one of the best things I've ever done. It was both fun and challenging, exhausting and empowering. I got to grow a lot as a person. In terms of fundraising, it really changed my view on giving and engaging in giving - So many people were willing to give of their time and money to help our mission, but where did all of this generosity come from? Is it a more giving culture in America? How can I learn from this and bring it back to Sweden?
A Birthday Campaign was the ultimate project for my birthday. As a way of motivating people to donate and making it more fun for everyone, myself included, I decided that, instead of a Fundraiser, I would do a FundRacer! This means I will run a 10K race from one mountaintop to the other, dressed like it's Halloween, with a big smile on my face. Or maybe not. But nevertheless, if I can manage to get enough donations, I will race!
