In a year when so many had such great needs, it’s no surprise that the MySweetWishList series has been overwhelmed. So much so that the original plan of having it end Christmas Eve has been extended to New Year’s Eve.
If you haven’t gotten your wish in, send it lickety-split, keeping in mind the following:
If you’re a North Texas 501 (c) 3 and want to get your message out, submit the following info/materials:
- A first-person article in Word format describing the one wish the organization would love to have. Example: Let’s say your organization is having a raffle. Then the wish might be for folks to buy raffle tickets as gifts for friends. Or, perhaps a homeless organization wishes for the donation of blankets and coats. Here are some examples of past “wishes”.
- The author must be a nonprofit’s representative, preferably a volunteer.
- A photo of the author with ID and/or organization’s logo in JPEG format.
- The nonprofit’s website with a link to it.
- The contact information for readers to respond to.
- Only one wish per nonprofit.
- When you submit the materials to [email protected], please put the “MySweetWishList for [the organization’s name]” (Example: MySweetWishList for Hummingbird Singalong Society) in the subject line. If you don’t, the infamous MySweetCharity filters will probably send your submission into the great unknown.
And for those who have some change to spare, please consider opening up those pockets of generosity in these final days of 2020. The COVID-19 vaccine may be on its way to waiting arms, but the suffering of North Texas nonprofits continues.
