We Only Need $620 to Finalize Funding Our Well!
May 06, 2016
Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for considering joining us in this worthwhile cause of providing a water well to a rural village in Uganda. We are passionate about this cause because we KNOW clean water is the solution! This well will provide clean water for 1,000 villagers, freeing them from the cycle of poverty, death and disease; and allow the children to attend school and mothers to have more time to contribute to the family.
Our goal is to have 50 people on our team and each raise or donate $120 so we can fund a well! The registration fee is not included in the fundraiser, as this is used for goodie bag, race t-shirts, race bibs and overall cost of the race. Children under 9 years of age do not have to pay a registration fee, but please let me know how many “unpaid” will be walking with you so I know the size of our team. There will be t-shirts at the race that you can purchase if you like.
THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT OUR TEAM. YOU CAN DONATE, OR YOU CAN JOIN OUR TEAM AND WALK/RUN WITH US. IF YOU FEEL SUPER INSPIRED, YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN TEAM, OR FUNDRAISE AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND INVITE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES JUST TO DONATE TO YOUR PERSONAL RACE PAGE. I HAVE INCLUDED INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALL OF THESE OPTIONS BELOW. PLEASE CALL ME AND I WILL WALK YOU THROUGH IT!!! I ALSO HAVE GREAT FLYERS, EMAILS YOU CAN USE TO COPY AND PASTE INSTRUCTIONS, AND BEAUTIFUL COIN COLLECTION CANS FOR YOUNGER KIDS WHICH I CAN GIVE TO HELP YOU FUNDRAISE.

Here are some creative ways to save money for donations:
Drink only water until the race day and tally the money you would have spent on different types of drinks during that time.
Have a garage sale and donate the proceeds from stuff you haven’t used in years.
Skip family movie night at the cinema and stay home and watch the videos on the Wells of Life Media section with your kids.
Skip eating out for one month and put the saved money aside.
Check to see if your company will match funds raised.
Ask for Donations in place of gifts for Birthday’s or other holiday gifts.
Do extra chores for $$.
Have a bake sale, lemonade stand or donut and coffee sale.
Sponsor a hand car wash.
See List above to do with parents.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING ACTION TO BE A SOLUTION TO THIS GREAT NEED!! EVERY DROP MATTERS, EVERY SECOND COUNTS!
