After a wonderfully productive planning meeting last week, the IWCS Charity Committee is forging ahead with all kinds of plans for our Annual Charity Event 2016, to be held on April 30th of this year.
BUT WE NEED MORE HELP!
Specifically, we need a group of members to help Charity Coordinator Vaida Kovalick obtain raffle prizes for the event. Although parts of our total donation to the Frauenhaus comes from tickets sales and sponsorships, a large part of it comes from the raffling off of prizes during the event (over €1000 last year!).
This is a relatively easy job that you can do mostly from home. This group will:
- Brainstorm and create a list of local companies who might be willing to donate goods or gift certificates to our event,
- Send out emails and letters to those companies, and
- Follow up on those inquiries, either via email or in person.
Only a basic conversational level of German is required, as the emails and letters will be from templates. If anything, this task requires persistence and organization above all else. (Want to help but aren’t confident enough with your German skils? Sign up anyways and Vaida can pair you with someone!)
If this sounds like something you could help with, please contact Vaida using the form below.
We are all looking forward to working with YOU!
