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 from October 11 - October 29. 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.

Use this space to write out a brief 4-5 sentence summary of your personal story of how you are connected to REBOOT's mission.
Here is my personal story, in case an example is helpful.
Joining REBOOT Recovery transformed my life. For so long, I've been crippled by anxiety and functioning addictions, and most recently the false guilt of miscarriage and infertility. With the supportive community that REBOOT has given me, I now live with the peace of God, and genuine joy in my heart every day as my husband and I move forward together and grow our family through adoption. There are so many families who are experiencing this same kind of pain. That's why I need your help to launch a Trauma REBOOT course here in middle Tennessee to provide trauma healing to families at no cost.
