One month to go!
Our event starts Monday August 31, which puts us one month from launch.
I’ve had a few questions regarding registration and team formation. The answer is–hang on–registration will start soon! The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is currently working on our new event site. The site should be up and running by August 15. The moment it is ready, we will post it here and on our Facebook page. We’ll also send out an e-mail to our list of participants from last year.
Registration is easy. You’ll go to the event page on the CFF.org website and fill out the form. It is okay to use your pen name, if you have one. You can choose to register as an individual, or as a team. Once a team page is established, team members can go to that team page to join.
To get ready for the big day, you can start lining up your team now, then let them know when you’ve established your team page.
Other things you can do to get ready:
- Set your reading or writing goal for the month.
- Set your donation goal.
- Start making a list of folks you will e-mail to ask for donations.
- Remember, there is no set amount per donor and donations are not set to your goal. Instead people give what they can afford. For example–we aren’t asking people to donate 5 cents a word, instead they should donate a flat rate, such as $25 (or $5, $10 or $100, whatever they can afford).
It will only take 920 donors at $25 each to get us to our $23,000 goal.
One month to go until we start Unleashing!
