Important Status of Mik's Hidden Hearts Alliance:
Due to the widespread destruction to South Texas due to Hurricane Harvey, our upcoming year 2017/18 is in jeopardy.
So many in our community are hurting and in 95% of our donations that we receive that sustains us for the year comes from local donations and sponsorships. We can not in good faith ask our community when they are hurting now and for an indetermined amount of time in the future.
In normal years, we start running low on funds in the summer, but then start receiving Boo Bash fundraiser donations which sustains us for the rest of the school year. Quite honestly, we are just about out of funds.
No funds coming in starting on Sept 1 (from Boo Bash) means we have no funds for socials including the much anticipated Anti-PROM, no money for the storage for all our event supplies. No money for Hope Kits and mailing. No money to pay the rest of the money due for the generous discounted rate from our Boo Bash vendors. Etc.
We run 100% on volunteer hours. There is no where we can scrap by to make Boo Bash work. No annual fundraiser Boo Bash means no Anti-PROM (and our other programs).
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
With your help, if we raise a minimum of $20,000, we will have enough to sustain us through the upcoming year... including hosting Boo Bash at no charge to our local community who have been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey.
If you would be willing to actively ask your non-affected Harvey/Irma friends and family for pledges, please sign up to have your Crowdrise MHHA Team (see details at the end).
**We must raise these funds by 9/30/2017 (2 weeks) or we have to shut down MHHA for the year.
Honestly, without participation of approx 100 people to do this, MHHA 2017/18 will not be viable. We need each and everyone of your help.
MHHA is more than a charity to us. We are family. This is a heartbreaking dilemma we face. We DO NOT want the families we serve who face huge medical bills or our community affected by Hurricane Harvey to donate their precious dollars to make this happen.
WHAT IS OUR NEEDED FINANCIAL GOAL?
To run the organization for the school year 2017/18, have Anti-PROM, Boo Bash, other local smaller socials, Hope Kits care packages with mail costs, cover website hosting and storage for our event items, we will need to raise a minimum $20,000
We thank you for your prayers for our MHHA families. Prayers for all our chronically ill youth who greatly need some joy and distraction.
Individual Goals: If we have minimum 125 people sign up to seek pledges, this would mean you would only need to get 10 people to donate $20 each. Making a total of $200. $200 times the 100 people equals our goal of $20,000.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors over the past 7 years, we have served over 1,000 chronically ill youth all over the country. It is our hope and prayer we can continue to bring hope and joy to them this upcoming year.
Prayers for Hurricane Harvey & Irma victims. And prayers for discernment on how best to proceed this upcoming year and that we reach our goals so we can continue to serve the Hidden in our community.
Thank you for your consideration to help.
**The campaign goal here has been set for $25,000. To cover our basic costs for the upcoming year, we need $20,000. To cover Crowdrise fee and unexpected expenses throughout the year, we set the goal to $25,000. Anything above and beyond this will help us to secure our funding for 2018/19.
Peace and Blessings,
Mik, Keri and Aunt Ronda
