Hi. I’m Jeannette Kravitz, Executive Director of sponsorKIDS Charities 501C3, a 12 year old non-profit, based in Chicago, IL that advocates for healthy lifestyles for children and fights against obesity and hunger, two of the most critical issues affecting kids around the globe today.
Our exciting project, OurECOWorld.org…CanUDigIt.org Campaign 2012 is the world’s largest pop up Viral & Live, Healthy People-Championed Pop-Up Food events REACHING MILLIONS through grass roots participation and our fun song launch/downloads. Individuals, Chefs, Restaurants, College Campuses, and more will help launch this first year series of annual CanUDigIt events during October when the UN World Food Day launches.
But we need your help.
We need to raise $18,000 to cover the cost of radio and social media promotion to launch the events & our song. Without this promotion we will not be able to maximize our fundraising efforts based on our song downloads and Pop-Up event registration fees. So we're turning to our strongest supporters to ask for contributions. In exchange, we're offering name recognition on our website, signed song DVD and Lyric Sheets, Skype Meet & Greet with the artists, free tickets to the campaign closing events and more.
Your contribution will focus promotion of CanUDigIt to millions of people and help our charity raise and surpass our target of $50,000; further giving us the funding to support, grow and expand our hands-on farm-to-table-to-school projects in America and with Skype-Garden Pal schools throughout the world.
What We Need & What You Get
Every great campaign needs promotion. We have negotiated for media exposure in 3-major markets across the US starting in the Midwest in Chicago, with key media including CBS Radio. Of course, if we raise more money from your kind Indiegogo donations, we can buy more promotion, which fuels the exposure to push-out our lead song & registration participation in our grass roots People-Championed Pop-Up food events.
This Indiegogo campaign, by its very nature, will help us reach our goals. Crowd funding happens also when you share this with your social media friends and family. Your help with donations and getting the word out will help fund our charitable efforts for healthier foods for kids. Our objective is to sell thousands of song downloads and have thousands doing pop-up food events over our 13-day CanUDigIt.org campaign, October 15-October 28th, 2012.
It’s amazing how great, healthy food can bring PEACE to your life and loved ones. Not to mention better health! Our band, Luminaries is donating their song titled Peace to help promote a healthy food culture through our CanUDigIt.org Campaign. The song Peace has cool lyrics, which helped us title our perks!
1st Annual Event 2012 Plus Added Program Components
Interactive Website. Share Your Pop Up Event With The World!
The CanUDigIt.org campaign website has been built to provide all the functionality needed for people participants to create events, share photos, video links, and stories showcasing their activities. Here participants can use the CanUDigIt Campaign to educate, bring communities & families, big and small, together to celebrate their personal food culture to share with the world and promote healthy food access.
As a program perk, you will be listed as an Indiegogo Donation Partner whose generosity and commitment to our cause provides a vital, all-important promotional aspect of the CanUDigIt Campaign.
The Campaign Includes:
We're hitting the road in October to visit key CanUDigIt Campaign events to video document the various creative ways participants are taking advantage of the 13-day event period.
Laying the groundwork for future fundraising opportuntites, all aspects of the CanUDigIt Campaign will be video taped for documentary production. I am an award winning documentary gal and work with great talent to help me. Video clips shot during Pop-Up events will also be used on the website blog posts to make sure participants everywhere will experience see the coolest ideas and great fun this event series brings, while compelling people to act in their communities to improve healthy food access.
