Before you start basting your turkeys and decorating your home-sweet-home, take some time to help your favorite non-profit raise awareness and funds before 2022 becomes history. It’s not hard because, thanks to an anonymous “friend” of North Texas charities, the MySweetWishList series starts Monday, November 21, and finishes up on Saturday, December 24.
The MySweetWishList series is absolutely free and easy to use. All your 501 (c) 3 organization has to do is provide the following:
- a first-person article in Word format describing the one wish the organization would love to have granted during the upcoming holidays. Example: Let’s say your organization is having a 2023 fundraiser. Then the wish might be for folks to sign up for sponsorships or tickets to the event. Or, perhaps an animal rescue group’s wish is for supplies and food listed on Amazon.
- the author must be a nonprofit’s representative, preferably a volunteer.
- a photo of the author and/or organization’s logo in JPEG format.
- the link to the nonprofit’s website.
- the contact information for readers to respond.
- only one wish per nonprofit.
- When you submit the article and photo to [email protected], please put the “MySweetWishList for [the organization’s name]” (Example: MySweetWishList for Cookie Monster Rehab Center) in the subject line. If you don’t, the infamous MySweetCharity filter will probably send your submission into the great unknown.
And, we’ll need your submissions ASAP. It’ll be first come, first posted.
Santa and the good people and companies of North Texas are waiting to hear how they can make wishes come true.
PS — The submission can be as long as you want it, but remember — too long can be too much. Need some ideas? Here are some.
