2023 Superhero for Heroes

It's that time of year again! Our 10th Annual Superhero for Heroes fundraiser is right around the corner! This fun event is held at your school in a format that you decide anytime between September 1st - 15th!

Host a parade, honor area heroes (military veterans, community helpers, others in your community), have dress up days, throw a party-let your creativity to celebrate your heroes flow!

Tips from a Superhero for Heroes veteran:

*ADD It to your calendar so your parents have it at orientation or back to school night
*Talk about it with your staff– get your teachers excited – maybe create a contest for them
*Create a bulletin board in your lobby or hallway to start the BUZZ going and get people excited….
*Host a count down and visual progress meter
*Start listing it in your parent newsletters
*Post it on social media to create a following and share reasons behind the event.
*Plan some visitors for the event, military, police, fire department, super heroes etc.

Customize your school's GiveLively fundraising page and share with families, friends, and your community (instructions in the Letter for Admin below) for ease of fundraising and to track your school's progress!

You also could use the owner or director's last name in this field after the center name. For example, "EEDA - Reynolds" 
3. From there you can upload your center's logo, add a little information about why you want to fundraise for EEDA & The Matthew Freeman Project and set your fundraising goal amount
4. After you submit this information your fundraising page is complete! You then will be able to share your fundraising page on social media or you can simply copy the link to send out to your parents, family and friends!
