There are many ways you can volunteer to help H2H fulfill its goal of treating patients in rural areas of the world.
Help us raise awareness of our cause by promoting fundraisers for clinic supplies: (acupuncture needles, ear seeds, cotton balls, gauze, alcohol swabs, moxibustion rolls); translator fees; transportation; lodging; etc.
As a volunteer, you may want to raise $1,000+ from your own community to be able to join H2H’s community clinics. Here are some suggestions from Kim Klein, co-publisher of the “Grassroots Fundraising Journal”:
- Host a House Party. Do not charge admission and invite as many people as you can. During the party, give a short talk about H2H adn ask everyone to consider a gift of $25, $50, $100 or more (depending on the crowd). Either pass out envelopes and ask people to give then, or after the party contact everyone individually who came and ask for a major gift. Indicate that you have given and, if appropriate, how much you have given.
- With 4 or 5 friends, have a spaghetti dinner at a temple, church or union hall or other big room with a large kitchen. Charge $10 per person and feed more than 100 people. You can charge extra for wine or garlic bread, or for dessert.
