Outright is gearing up at the office to finish our year strong with fundraising and the second to last project is our “CALL ME MAYBE [phone-a-thon]“
this coming weekend, Sunday, Dec. 2nd and early next week, Monday, Dec. 3rd & Tuesday, Dec. 4th.
Are you a former or current Chatty Cat? Do you like calling people? Do you have a couple of hours to volunteer (even in this busy end of the semester???)
Then, Outright VT needs you!!!!
We aim to make this as easy and seriously as FUN as possible. So, here is the run down:
TIME: 6pm-8:30pm – we will feed you dinner & then have you call for only 2 hours.
TRAIN: You will get our super fab phone-a-thon training, which will ready you for your phone calls (you will generally talk to about 20-25 folks over the course of those 2 hours). Data/paperwork folks, we will have you plugging away at entering in the live data, to keep our call sheets fresh each night!
GOAL: We are setting our team at $3,250 for the three nights – that is just about $1,000 a night, or about 30 donors giving each night at our membership. Each ask is for between $35-100 – so we aren’t asking for the moon!
WHO DO YOU CALL? Well, after the ghostbusters, we are largely calling our Outright donors, fans, and volunteers – folks who LOVE us! So, this is not a cold call/scary situation.
In fact, we encourage you to bring your cell phones or address books to call some of your friends to practice (and you might surprise yourself that they may give!).
HOW MANY ON A TEAM PER NIGHT? We need 5 callers & 2 paper/data folks. Yes, recruit your friends!
So, what do you say? Do you have 2 1/2 hours to give to our amazing mission to support queer youth here in Vermont? If you haven’t had the chance to volunteer yet this year – this is it!
Thank you all so much, together you make this work possible!
