Send Us to Camp!

Even though it is not hockey season, our program doesn't sleep. Or rather, we sleep in a lot of different places . . . like CAMP! And we need your help to get there.

We are discreet about fund drives at DinoMights. There are only two times a year we make major appeals to the public for funds: at our Annual Fundraiser in the fall, and just prior to summer in support of Summer programming.

So the blog will be the epicenter of a mini-fund drive to help SEND DINOMIGHTS TO CAMP!!!

Over the next week I will be highlighting DinoMights summer opportunities. We'll be talking about what the kids will be doing, what it means to them, and what are the costs involved with those activities.

We are hoping to raise $15,000 towards the costs of summer programming (excluding salaries and administrative costs). It would be great if us blog readers could help raise a portion of that amount.

All week there will be a widget displayed on the right side of the blog screen. You can click on the widget and make a tax-deductible donation directly to DinoMights, which is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Also, if you really want to get involved, because you really think DinoMights is making a difference in the lives of urban youth, you can share the widget with your friends and networks.

We are going to make it worth your while to give this week too. DinoMights are going to give you incentives everyday. So not only will your dollars be sending the kids to camp, but they will be earning special surprises too!

Good luck with your fundraising? Have you tried the Chip In widget for tracking your progress? I've not used it yet myself but it looks really handy!

Thanks for your interest! Chip In and the widget I'm using from PayPal are pretty much the same thing.
