A New Year With a New Goal
Action Against Hunger supporters fundraised over $85,000 in 2011. Now, we're proud to launch the 2012 My Action Against Hunger campaign! This year we're counting on you, our generous supporters, to reach out to your networks of friends, family, and colleagues and help us raise and ambitious $100,000 for lifesaving nutrition, water, food security, and disaster relief programs around the world.
How does it work? It's easy—all you have to do is head over to My Action Against Hunger, click on the big green Register button, and fill out a quick form. Signing up is free (although the most successful fundraisers often make the first donation to their own campaign to kickstart their outreach efforts). Once you're registered, you'll be able to update your very own fundraising page and send emails to your friends and family. Donations made through your page will come directly to Action Against Hunger.
We've had some really inspiring fundraising campaigns over the past year, like:
- Su May and Cee Yee hiked to the Everest Base Camp
- Fourteen year old Calvin raised over $1,000 through his family farm and community
- The team over at Guardian Fall Protection joined together and raised over $5,000
Yes, you can be an amazing fundraiser. Take a look at our blog posts on Su May and Cee Yee, Calvin, and Guardian Fall Protection—all of them offer tips and tricks on how to do a phenomenal job. Do you have what it takes to join their ranks? We bet you do.
