With the holiday season starting up, it’s more important than ever for North Texas non-profits to make a last push for this year’s donations or perhaps to get support for 2024. By using the MySweetWishList series to promote your non-profit, you can rally the community to support longtime supporters and introduce newcomers to your efforts.
This year’s plan is to kick off the series on Monday, November 20, and finish up on Tuesday, December 24.
Thanks to an anonymous donor the MySweetWishList series is absolutely free and easy to use. All you have 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 2024 fundraiser. Then the wish might be for folks to sign up for sponsorships or tickets to the event. Or, perhaps a homeless shelter’s wish is for clothing and supplies?
- the author must be a non-profit’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 non-profit.
- When you submit the article and photo to [email protected], please put the “MySweetWishList for [the organization’s name]” (Example: MySweetWishList for Society for Nearsighted Owls) in the subject line. If you don’t, the infamous MySweetCharity filters will probably send your submission into the great unknown.
And, we’ll need your submissions ASAP. It’ll be first come, first posted.
So, why not give Santa a little help in making wishes come true for those in need?
PS — The submission can be as long as you want, but remember — too long can be too much. Need some ideas? Here are some from last year.
