Spring2Action 2016

s2a2016header

Space of Her Own is gearing up for Spring2ActionWednesday, April 20, 2016 – Alexandria’s Giving Day!

SOHO will be participating in the online campaign for the 5th year in a row, and we’ve set our biggest goal yet:

The Mason Hirst Foundation has generously offered to match donations if SOHO raises $10,000 during Spring2Action!

We can use all the support we can get! We’re hoping that all members of our SOHO family will join in to help us achieve our goal.

Here are some resources to help you spread the word.

Our Pages:

Our main razoo page: https://www.razoo.com/us/story/Sohospaceofherown
Our bitly (short link): http://bit.ly/SOHOs2a

SOHO Girls, SOHO Boys and SOHO Alumni will all be running their own free-agent fundraising pages. Space of Her Own – Del Ray & Old Town 2015-2016 will fundraise under the “SOHO Girls” Razoo page; Space of His Own – Del Ray 2015-2016 will fundraise under the “SOHO Boys” Razoo page; all other SOHO Cohorts will fundraise under the “SOHO Alumni” Razoo page.
Each program has a goal of $2000 and all money donated through these pages will count towards SOHO’s overall goal of $10,000.

Sample email message:

Friends,

Did you know that youth who have been mentored express the desire to pay it forward and mentor themselves when they grow up?*

I’ve been mentoring with the Space of [Her/His] Own program for [months/years] now, and I know firsthand the joy and inspiration a child can gain from the encouragement of an invested adult. My mentee has been an inspiration to me: [give example of how mentee is inspiration].

I’m campaigning with the rest of the SOHO mentors to rally funds through Spring2Action – a 24 hour online fundraising event April 20th that offers local nonprofits the chance to raise thousands of dollars to benefit all of Alexandria. This year, the Mason Hirst Foundation has offered to match the money we raise with a $10,000 grant.

The [insert name of your program… Del Ray, Old Town, etc.] SOHO program has a goal of $2000 – will you help us meet our goal?

Please visit [http://bit.ly/SOHOs2a or SOHO Free Agent Fundraising Page on Razoo] to schedule your Spring2Action donation today.

Sincerely,

[Your name]
