The Extra-Ordinary Light Project
"...Hold out your candle for all to see it. Take your candle, and go light your world." ~ Go Light Your World, Christopher M. Rice
The Extra-Ordinary Light Project is a fundraising initiative designed to help you share the light in your life. Each of us experience extraordinary events in our lives...those times when we feel that our light is shining just a little bit brighter than usual. What if you could find a way to share that light with homeless children and families? You can, by launching your very own Extra-Ordinary Birthdays (EOB) fundraising campaign!
Step 1: Pledge your Extra-Ordinary Light to Extra-Ordinary Birthdays Use the form below to let us know you are choosing to be an Extra-Ordinary Light.
Step 2: Start planning your fundraising initiative! Your theme? YOUR special event or milestone. This can be a birthday, graduation, promotion, retirement, confirmation, bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah, birth of a child or grandchild, memorial, etc. Let your imagination be your guide.
Step 3: Decide how you want to raise funding for EOB. You may set up your fundraising project any way you like. Some examples are online fundraising pages on Facebook or Razoo or in-person fundraising events, like a garage sale or lemonade stand. You may prefer to make a donation, and then challenge friends, family and coworkers to match it. Be creative, and make your Extra-Ordinary Light Project as elaborate or as simple as you want it to be.
Step 4: Reach out for guidance from the EOB team if you need it. Although, we won’t manage your fundraising effort, feel free to contact us for ideas and counsel, as you need them.
Step 5: Take your Extra-Ordinary Light campaign LIVE & start collecting donations for Extra-Ordinary Birthdays! Invite everyone you know and spread the news often. Once your fundraising effort has ended, mail collected funds to our address: Extra-Ordinary Birthdays Inc., P.O. Box 1109 College Park, Maryland 20740 United States.
