Birthday Pledge

GET INVOLVED

STEP ONE: SIGN UP






 
 

by Patrick Cox

 

STEP TWO: EMAIL EVERYONE


GIVE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY A CHANCE TO HELP

You have learned that 800 million people do not have safe drinking water! YOUR BIRTHDAY CAN CHANGE THAT! We all have Birthdays let's use them to help people who have less than us. Pledge to give up your next birthday, ask for donations instead of gifts, and help change lives for the better!





 

EXAMPLE EMAIL:

COPY, PASTE AND EDIT THE FOLLOWING EMAIL

Hi Guys,

My birthday is coming up and if possible could you send a donation to give clean water instead of buying me a gift. This donation is going to help people in developing countries obtain clean, safe drinking water. Today some 800 million who do not have clean water now. I pretty much have everything I need and feel these people could use a little help. 100% of your donation will be spent on clean water projects.

To make a donation just copy and paste this URL into your browser address bar,  http://www.geo-life.org/birthday-donate.html  and it will take you to the Birthday-Donate page. You can give with a credit card or follow the instruction for writing a check. Just so Geo-Life knows this donation is for my Birthday Campaign, in the Credit Card “PURPOSE BOX” (at the top of the page) put my name in and the donation will go to my Birthday Campaign.

Too many people are becoming sick and dying from waterborne deceases and we have a chance to do something about it. So please make my birthday a meaningful one.

Sincerely
YOU



 

STEP THREE: WE SEND YOU UPDATES


WE KEEP YOU UPDATED
We let you know when the donations come in and you can email your friends and family to keep them updated on how much everyone raised for Clean Water.


Thank You for starting a birthday campaign!

A birthday campaign is just that easy. It's a cool idea, instead of birthday presents, your family and friends donate to clean water projects for your big day. 100% of the money you raise will go to build a clean water project to help people.





If your birthday is not for a while, don't worry. We'll remind you when it gets near.
If you have any questions just let us know and we'll be happy to help you.

THANK YOU TO
EVERYONE WHO GIVES!!
