The team member** who raises the most money will receive a $300 Southwest Airlines Gift Card (minimum donations raised to be eligible: $500). Team members** will automatically be entered to win crowdrise promotions as they collect donations for CCV Fundraiser Walk.
CCV Fundraiser Walk donations must be submitted to Paypal for Operation Europe and Criss Cross Voices L3C, and recorded on crowdrise CCV fundraising team member page** for the Donor (Organizer's Toolkit: Enter Offline Donations).
All donations submitted to crowdrise.com/ccvl3c will only be given to Sunshine Gospel Ministries.
Criss Cross Voices is an L3C, so all profit goes to supporting non-profits and small businesses that are unable to afford media and marketing (branding). Partnering with CCV is an investment in the future of non-profit branding and social design. CCV is committed to strengthening the message and media of non-profits to create a stronger impact in society and grassroots change while supporting businesses and non-profits that support social justice.
Crystal Anderson is the founder of Criss Cross Voices and is an experienced traveler and writer. She traveled with FGL to 17 countries throughout the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, and Central America. Her first book, partly based on her travels, will be published Spring 2012, “Eye of Reality Trilogy." Anderson backpacked solo through Israel, West Bank (Palestine), and Jordan in spring 2008. Last December, she led a team to Egypt and interviewed locals involved and affected by the Arab Spring for her first documentary, "Voices in the Muslim Movement." Her passions include politics, history, travel, interpersonal communication, and reporting facts to inform and give people the opportunity to shape educated opinions for action.
- *Operation Europe Documentary Film: In the past decade the voice and influence of religion has changed on a global scale. With the urbanization of the world, an inner twining of secularism has come face to face with religion. More specifically, European nations who have prided themselves in being a post-Christian society have found themselves living in a post-secular world. I am writing you on behalf of a team composed of like-minded individuals who seek to capture through film the state of Christianity in today’s pluralist society.
- **CCV Fundraising Team: A Fundraising Team is a group of Fundraisers or Volunteers, all working together for a common cause. It's like communism but more fun. Start or Join a Fundraising Team if you want to go beyond donating money and get more involved by spreading the word about the Fundraiser to your friends, family, co-workers, etc. Everyone on the Team gets their own Fundraising Page with the click of a button so we make it quick and easy to join the Team and even easier to tell your friends about it. Donating cash to a Fundraiser is amazing and much appreciated but imagine the impact you can have if you go a step further and ask everyone you know to donate too. And then a couple of them join the Team and spread the word to all their friends. We've seen this work successfully over and over and it can work for this Fundraiser too.
