Children of Fallen Heroes

9/11 Charity Challenge Fundraiser

Join us in supporting the Children of Fallen Heroes Retreat and Education Center through a simple and impactful fundraiser. Our goal is to raise funds to provide support, education, and healing for these deserving children. Here's how you can contribute:

  1. Donation Drive: Set up a designated donation drive at your workplace, school, or community center. Create a visually appealing donation box or jar and place it in a high-traffic area. Encourage people to donate spare change or any amount they can to support the Children of Fallen Heroes.

  2. Spread the Word: Utilize your personal and social networks to raise awareness about the fundraiser. Share information about the Children of Fallen Heroes Retreat and Education Center, its mission, and the importance of supporting these children. Encourage others to donate and share the fundraiser with their networks.

  3. Online Crowdfunding: Create a simple crowdfunding page on a reliable platform, such as GoFundMe or Donorbox. Share the link through social media, email, and messaging apps. Explain the cause, share personal stories, and set a fundraising goal. Encourage friends, family, and colleagues to donate and share the page with their networks.

  4. Host a Bake Sale or Car Wash: Organize a bake sale or car wash event in your community. Rally friends, neighbors, and local businesses to contribute baked goods or volunteer their cars for washing. Advertise the event through posters, social media, and community bulletins. All proceeds from the sales or services provided will go towards the Children of Fallen Heroes.

  5. Collaborate with Local Businesses: Approach local businesses and ask if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their sales to the Children of Fallen Heroes during a specific period. Create promotional materials, such as flyers or posters, to display at their locations, informing customers about the cause and how their purchases can make a difference.

  6. Personal Challenges: Encourage individuals to take on personal challenges to raise funds. This could include activities like running, cycling, or swimming a certain distance within a set timeframe. Participants can ask friends and family to sponsor their efforts and donate directly to the Children of Fallen Heroes.

  7. Community Events: Organize community events, such as a fun run, talent show, or silent auction, with all proceeds going to the Children of Fallen Heroes. Engage local businesses, schools, and community organizations to contribute prizes, services, or venue space to support the event. Advertise the event through various channels to maximize participation and donations.

  8. Honor the Fallen: Organize a memorial event or ceremony to honor the fallen heroes and their families. Invite community members, local officials, and veterans to participate. During the event, collect donations or hold a raffle, with all proceeds dedicated to the Children of Fallen Heroes.

  9. Corporate Matching: Reach out to companies and corporations to inquire about their corporate matching donation programs. Encourage employees to donate individually and offer to provide necessary documentation for the company to match their contributions. This can significantly boost the funds raised.

Remember, even small contributions can have a big impact on the lives of the children who have lost their heroes. Let's come together as a community, support the Children of Fallen Heroes Retreat and Education Center, and provide these children with the care and opportunities they deserve.
