A FANTASTIC start to the fundraiser - but where do we go from here?
I would love to send even more money to Tesfa for July, but I need your help. Have you ordered yet? If you have ordered, have you also told all your friends and family about the fundraiser? I KNOW there are more people out there who would love Barefoot Books and would love to help build schools in Ethiopia - we just have to get the word out to them.
Here are a few ways you can let people know about the fundraiser:
- Send them the link to my blog post about it here.
- Invite them to the Facebook event I created about the fundraiser. It's a public event, so anyone can be invited and join; I post a lot there about individual books that I highly recommend, so that is a great way for people who might not know Barefoot Books yet to find out about how amazing the books are.
- If you know people who would be interested but are unlikely to place an order on-line, please contact me (Liz@ReadingBarefootinBoston.com) and I will send you a catalog, flyers, order forms in the mail. You can write the order down on a form and send it back to me in the mail with a check or credit card number. I'll even provide a stamped envelope for you to return the order to me.
I am extremely grateful that being a Barefoot Books Ambassador allows me to contribute to causes I care about but would not otherwise have the funds to support, and I am extremely grateful to all of you for helping me do that too.
Now let's all get out there and raise some money for schools in Ethiopia!
