26 Step 5: Create Your Event Do your research before giving or printing any information. Partnering with an organization can help with finding the essential facts, just remember to promote the cause itself along with the organization. Always give a call to action, so your audience knows how they can help. Ways to raise awareness for a cause:  Pamphlets/brochures  Flyers  Posters  Information desks/tables at events  Representatives from partner organization speak at event  Promo videos  Social Media  Public Broadcasting (TV, radio, newspaper) Raise awareness NEXT STEP BACK You can raise awareness with almost any project you do. Most causes have an awareness day, week, or month. Try planning events around these, such as:  Class competitions  Surveys  Freebie items  Games/Simulations  Assemblies  Statistics/facts on morning announcements

27 Step 5: Create Your Event Raising funds can help in a multitude of ways, it doesn’t have to go directly to the people effected by the cause. Money is essential for any organization to prosper, therefore donating to an organization dedicated to your cause can be an easier way to give back. Small events to raise funds:  Penny war  Cake walk  Sports competitions (free throw, home run, quarterback, penalty kick, etc.)  Dance competition  Bake sale  Food sales (burger, pork steak, BBQ, etc.) Raise funds NEXT STEP BACK Large events to raise funds:  Dodgeball tournament  School/parish dance  Pay to Get Out of Class For more fundraising ideas visit: easy-fundraising-ideas.cfm easy-fundraising-ideas.cfm  5K  Raffle  Yard Sale

28 Step 5: Create Your Event Keep in mind that not all causes can benefit from service projects. But they are still essential to many, and most often looked over or forgotten. Many schools, organizations, and communities already have service projects in place. While it’s great to start your own, volunteering for others may be just as effective. Examples of service projects:  Visiting seniors  Special Olympics  Picking up trash  Free babysitting night  Soup kitchens  Food drives  Item collections (depending on the organization/what is needed in your community)  Elementary grades field day  Volunteering for events Give service NEXT STEP BACK

29 ALL the Above?  Almost every outreach project can have more than one method of support. Some may not include all three, but most projects can include at least two.  Try looking at each of the methods of support to decide which would work best for YOUR project. Remember: Not every tip has to be used, pick the ones you think will be most beneficial to your project. LET’S LOOK

30 Step 6: Bring to your Adviser Checklist BEFORE presenting Does my idea have:  Specific cause  Clear method of support (or more than one)  Basic outline of the event (who, what, when, where, and how)  Partner organization Tips for presenting:  Be respectful  Stay flexible, be open to any suggestions  Prepare for something to not work, have back-up options  Know your pitch well  Be ready to answer questions NEXT STEP BACK

31 Step 7: Finalize Details After getting your adviser’s approval:  Get required permission (ex: principal, city, etc.)  Set dates  Form a committee (if necessary- small events may only need chapter officers)  Assign specific jobs  *Set goals*  Create a publication plan BACK Making a Publication Plan Publication is KEY to any event (with the exception of service projects.) Where, when, what, and how you publicize your event can mean the difference between major success and a meager event.

32 Making a Publication Plan Local media sources:  Newspapers  News channels  Radio stations  Parish websites SOCIAL MEDIA: Before event:  Sites to use: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram  Post pictures, tweets, and statuses with dates  Create hashtags During event:  Ask participants to post pictures and videos using hashtags NEXT STEP BACK  Where: At your school, around your town, online, local media sources  When: a week or two before, a month or two before, or several months before  What: Name of event, Date & Time, place, cause, partner organization  How: Ask permission to post around school and town, get members to post on social media, contact local media sources to cover the event

33 Step 8: Contact Organization How do I contact them?  Call or send an . Explain what your chapter is planning, then state clearly what you would like from them. (ex: information about their cause or what they do, a representative to accept a check, possible dates to volunteer/visit, etc.) Helpful Tips:  Remember professionalism!  Be direct- don’t give them more information than they need.  CLEARLY state what their role is (what you expect)  Follow up- keep in contact NEXT STEP BACK

34 What’s a Category? The categories cover every option available for outreach programs. Explanation of each:  Victory for Victims: Support for victims of any kind.  Enhance the Environment: Working towards a cleaner Earth.  Generation to Generation: Focusing specifically on one age group.  Hope for Health: Any project associated with a health concern. Back to Step 1 for Starting Fresh Back to Step 1 for Locked-In Idea
