New Year's Resolutions

One week into 2010, have you already made your New Year's Resolutions? Maybe one of them is to get more involved with your favorite charity? :)



Well, we would love to help you out! We've compiled a list of all the ways to get involved (some traditional and some notsomuch) with Heroes for Children this year.



1) Do you have a talent or business that would benefit Heroes for Children? Anytime we can find printers, designers, photographers, entertainers, caterers, or venues to donate their services, Heroes for Children can re-direct those funds to program services instead.



2) Are you a member of a Mom's Club or PTA looking for a speaker? Co-Founders, Jenny Scott and Larissa Linton, are available for speaking engagements.



3) Have you joined the Heroes for Children Facebook cause at www.causes.com/hfc? Are you following our Twitter account - www.twitter.com/heroes4children? Stay connected to Heroes for Children all year long!



4) Do you have a lot of friends? Do you like to have parties? Would you like to host a party/fundraiser with your friends to introduce them to Heroes for Children? You host, we help, families benefit from the money you raise for Heroes for Children.



5) Would you like to volunteer to help Heroes for Children with its social assistance programs? We are looking for more women to join our women's auxiliary, HFC Friends. Dues are $40 - $80 annually or $1,000 for lifetime membership. The dues help support our social assistance programs like the Valentine's dinner, movie night, and Holiday Heroes, plus you can volunteer as much or little time as you have available to implement these programs.



6) Are you in Fort Worth or Austin? We are expanding our fundraising efforts to these areas in 2010 and we need your help!



7) Do you sit on the board or committee for an organization who raises money for charity? We LOVE when organizations/events raise money for Heroes for Children. Let us know about your organization so that we can apply to be a beneficiary.



8) Do you have spare time each week (don't we all)? We LOVE office volunteers! Like, really, it is not natural how much we love them. Can you type? Stuff envelopes? Type and stuff envelopes? Perfect.



9) Do you like Handbags? Running? Walking? Golfing? Playing poker? Awesome. We have an event for that. Plus, you help us raise money by participating. And getting your friends to participate. Join us at one of the fundraising events in 2010.



10) Do you have school-age kids? Do they participate in fundraisers at school? Would you help us set up a fundraiser at your kid's school for Heroes for Children? Yes? Great! We are creating a NEW fundraiser for schools!



Okay... this list may not be complete... so let us know how else you would like to help! We need your help!
