Calling all Parents

January 31, 2017

One week has elapsed since we launched our fundraising effort at the social on January 21st. We’ve had a few kids sign-up and they are off to a fast start, having raised over $2,200 already. The fundraising effort will run through the end of February and we’ll provide weekly status updates throughout the drive. 

Program enhancements that we can implement will depend on how much we raise, so please get your kids started.

To get your kid signed up there are six easy steps:

  1. Go to https://www.crowdrise.com/butternut-race-team
  2. Click Fundraise for this campaign (it’s a gray box on the right hand side under the scrolling list of donations)
  3. At the bottom of pop up box click “don’t have an account” (unless you already have a Crowdrise account, then login and “join the team”)
  4. Click “sign up”
  5. Fill in name, email and create your own password after you click “sign up” (orange button)
  6. Click orange button again “join the team”

In order to get back onto your personal page web address, go to www.crowdrise.com/butternut-race-team/fundraiser/yourchild’snamehere

Once set-up, your child (and you) can upload a picture and write a personal message. Then send it out via email to your contacts or share via Facebook or Twitter. That’s it. It will take 10-15 mins in total, all for the betterment of our ski community.
