It seems most non profit organisations conduct events as part of their fundraising plan. Most organisations conduct the same types of events. Frankly, it’s a bit difficult to come up with a “unique” event and not a “copy” of other non profit organisations.
Boston Children’s Hospital sent me a unique fundraising and education event proposition just last week. It caught my attention. Why?
Boston Children’s Hospital suggested many of us spend too much time using our smart devices. The Email asked me to take a pledge to spend a day off technology and to spend this time with my loved ones. It seems Boston Children’s Hospital have a “mediatrician” who will provide me with tips to cut back on technology use once I sign the pledge. And, there is a fundraising angle to the pledge!
The program helps me, helps my relationships and helps Boston Children’s Hospital!
