Welcome to Adopt-A-Square.
The concept is really pretty simple, no really! Below you will see a graphic with 200 squares. Each square has a number. That number represents a dollar amount. Once the dollar value has been donated, the square gets crossed out. The fundraiser continues until all squares are crossed out.
Sounds simple right?
It would be great to do this with physical envelopes on a wall in our home. But since we interact with the majority of you online, we needed to come up with a digital solution.
So here’s how it’ll work:
Step 1: Follow our blog, here, just look right below the family photo on the right side. This way, you can follow the progress and see which squares are available!
Step 2: Choose a square that has the cash value you want to give or raise.
– Make sure the square you want is not crossed out. (if its blacked out its taken)
– If the square is crossed out, chose multiple squares that equal the amount you feel led to give or raise. Example: If you know you want to give or raise $100, you could choose many different square combinations to equal the sum of 100.
– To select your square email us your numbers at firstname.lastname@example.org, the move on to step 3!
*Note: Your square will not be held or “claimed” while you are raising the money for your square. Our aim is to raise money fast, so the faster you raise your donation, better are the chances that you will meet your donation goal. Your money will not be counted until it has been received, posted, processed, paid, etc…
Step 3: Give or raise cash fast.
– Start your fundraising! We are excited to have you involved in this journey with us. By extending this fundraiser to your co-workers, extended family, roommates, hall-mates, Bible study group, Sunday school class, Mops group, neighbors, and everyone you know, you give them the opportunity to participate in this beautiful journey of hope for a little baby girl. So, get creative. Host a bake sale. Skip on eating out for two weeks. Get all your co-workers to give you $10. There are lots of ways to raise these amounts of money fast!
