Global Weekly Update December 26, 2011
We Are Thankful for Your Hard Work and Generosity
We wish to extend our deepest gratitude and congratulations to all our event fundraisers this year. You organized everything from birthday parties to celebrity dinners and inspired a whopping $214,000 in donations and monthly sponsorships! That’s more than $45,000 more than last year’s total! We’re so grateful for the dedication you have to increasing our impact and helping millions more people who need us. This money truly lets us go where other organizations don’t, and we never forget it. We cannot thank you enough as we close out 2011.
Looking ahead to next year, if you are a runner or have a January birthday, our fundraising team would love for you to take our new online fundraising tool for a spin in January! If you’d like to run a 5K or are willing to celebrate your age to inspire your friends to contribute to RESULTS and RESULTS Educational Fund, contact Cindy Levin to find out more.
Lastly, think about a year-end gift to help us achieve more in 2012! Please consider making a year-end contribution to RESULTS Educational Fund, the tax-deductible 501(c)(3) arm, or RESULTS, the non-tax-deductible 501(c)(4) arm. You will empower new activists to speak out and empower people in poverty to take charge of their lives. You will help RESULTS grow here at home and have a bigger impact all over the world. Please donate now. We thank you!
Gearing Up for 2012
The RESULTS office is currently closed for the holidays, but we’ll reopen at 9:00 am ET on Tuesday, January 3. We will have our 2012 group planning materials available soon after the office reopens. (Contact Lisa Marchal with any questions about the materials.) Thank you for a spectacular 2011. Enjoy ringing in the new year. See you soon!
Offer RESULTS to Your Friends in the New Year!
Has RESULTS come up in your holiday conversations with family and friends? Anyone interested in knowing more? Invite your loved ones and colleagues to sign up for a RESULTS Introductory Call and get to know us better. We already have folks signed up for our first call of the year on January 4. These 30-minute meet-and-greet calls are fast, friendly, and informative. The more, the merrier!
(By the way, don’t forget to begin inviting your group partners and community to the RESULTS 2012 International Conference. It will be BIG!)
Catching Up on Some Reading This Holiday?
Add the RESULTS blog to your reading list. If you haven’t visited for a while, you might have missed some informative and delightful posts from partners and staff. The blog doesn’t close for the holidays, so grab a cup of tea and enjoy some stories from the RESULTS family! We look forward to all the new, inspiring things we’ll be up to together in 2012.
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
