How to Create a Birthday Angels Campaign
for Your Mitzvah Project
1. Set your goals: *How many parties do you want to give? *What's your target date?
2. Explain why you’re choosing Birthday Angels as your Mitzvah project. (see some good reasons below)
3. Spread the word. Let everyone know! Sharing today is easier than ever before.
So to make it easy for you here's a sample message you can use for your campaign:
Welcome to my Bar/Bat Mitzvah Project Campaign! I want to excite all the people who know me as well as all the people THEY know, to give what they can and spread the word about Birthday Angels, the project I've chosen as my Bar/t Mitzvah Project. Inviting you online makes it easy for all of you to participate even if you live too far away to come to my local fundraising drive (bake sale, skating party, talent contest, marathon, hoops for hopes, used clothes drive etc( You can donate $36 and make real magic happen. This is all it takes to provide one party! MY GOAL is: To raise $______to provide #____ Birthday Angels Birthday Parties.
Why I'm making Birthday Angels my Bar/t Mitzvah project
1. EVERYBODY DESERVES TO CELEBRATE HIS OR HER BIRTHDAY
For us to grow up knowing how much we are loved is a basic human need. Birthdays are the most important day of the year in the heart of any child. Anybody knows that! If you give a child food, tomorrow he will be hungry. Build their self esteem and tomorrow they will make their own dreams come true.
2. SIMCHAS ARE AN OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE
I'm privileged to be able to celebrate with my family and friends, especially this year. And what better way to give back all my good fortune than by doing the same for someone else who hasn't been as lucky as me?
3. I WANT TO SUPPORT ISRAEL
Supporting Israel is also very important to me. This project supports Israel's neediest children making their lives sweeter and more meaningful. It is a practical fun intervention that gives disadvantaged kids what affluent children always experience and usually take for granted.
4. I WANT MY EFFORTS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
I chose Birthday Angels because I believe that if you feed a hungry person today, he'll be hungry again tomorrow. But if you build a person’s self esteem, tomorrow they can make their own dreams come true. I believe that celebrating birthdays builds self esteem. And since it only takes $36 I hope we will be making a lot of dreams come true.
