There are TONS of ways to help our fellow widows and programs. From a margarita mixer to a golf tournament, the sky and your imagination are the limit! Are you a widow? How about an event in memory of your hero that also helps other widows?
The AWP Fundraising Toolkit contains helpful instructions for hosting a successful event. Download your toolkit HERE.
More ideas on how you can raise vital funds to help military widows:
Start a personal fundraising page!
Launch your own online fundraiser (great for getting your Facebook and twitter buddies involved!) HERE. Been to an AWP event, know a widow whose life it’s changed? Share your personal experiences and share it with your virtual family.
In Memory of Your Hero!
Did your hero love bowling? Eating sushi? Arcade games? Take what he loved and make it into an event to honor his memory and support the AWP!
Ask your local businesses for in-kind donations.
From our AWP event welcome bags to items to help raise funds. We can always use a hand! From books to grocery gift cards, this will help cover the costs we cover for the widows involved in the AWP to have the best time ever.
Host a yoga class, photo session or cocktail party!
Do the things you love to not only feel great, but feel great knowing your helping military widows all over the country.
Help Others. Help Us.
Get people to sponsor you or your group for each hour of community service. Then, schedule 20 hours of service over an eight week period. There are many organizations to choose from. On a national level, you can choose from many organizations such as Red Cross, The Salvation Army, or even needy people in your own town. Raise money by serving others.
Run, walk or Crawl…
Do a 5k, Iron Man, run across the country to support the AWP! We can work with you on creating a shirt and have tattoos to sport on your arms!
