Connect with your friends, family, and community members. Update them on your trauma healing course. Is this your 10th time to lead or your first? What is the need like in your community? How many families will you be able to help through your course?
Who has helped you along the way? Make sure to personally thank everyone who has supported you either financially or through prayer.
Step 2- Request support
Your Leader Fundraiser will be live for 3 weeks. In addition to social media posts, make sure to directly ask your friends, family, and community members for support. Requests for support are most effective when you share your story and the true need you are trying to fill in your community by leading a REBOOT trauma healing course. Below, I've drafted some sample requests for support that you can copy and personalize.
Here is a sample request for support email. Please personalize!
I'm leading trauma healing course with REBOOT Recovery here in our community. REBOOT helps veterans, first responders and all families heal from trauma through faith-based courses led by people like me. REBOOT has not only changed the lives of the people we've reached, but it has changed my life as well.
I never could have imagined the stories I would encounter as I've served these brave men and women, and I’d like to invite you to be a part of this incredible journey. We offer our course at no cost to participants, and the materials and curriculum needed to lead our course for the coming year costs $2,000.
A gift of any amount makes a huge difference and your donation will support the mission right here in our community.
