You are a lovely thing for asking!
The biggest thing you can do is host the Purse and take a night to relax, play and celebrate a life well-lived.
But yes, there are a few other things you can do.
Find a corporate sponsor.
This one is actually a big help. Do you or your partner work for an employer that could make a pledge? Please ask! Do you have community connections with an organization that likes to support causes? Please ask! I will provide all details, including a copy of our letter of commitment from the American Heart and Stroke Association and the information on donations.
Be a promoter.
The more people involved in the project, the more fun it will be. Blog about it, tweet about it, write a guest post for the Project:Purse and Boots blog. If you know how to write a press release, I’ll take it. If you belong to a blogging group or networking community, talk about it!
Be a media guru.
I can handle a simple WordPress blog, but some of the finer details are a bit much for me. If you are handy with the Webz or great with graphics, throw your skills into the ring. I’d love it!
I would love to host give-aways, or give thank you gifts to the people who Host the purse. If you are a crafty person or have access to promotional materials that are a good fit for the project, email me and let me know.
Lori, I just need to do more!
You are amazing! If you, your family, or any friends would like to be “Coin-Purse Sponsors,” where you pledge a dollar or two per Purse Party, that is incredible! Or if you want to jump straight to a donation, click here to go directly to the AHA donations page.
