Alexandria knows how to celebrate Spring2ACTion!
- Connect your laptop and display the Spring2ACTion leader boards - remember to refresh the page to watch the numbers increase!
- Make a laptop or tablet available to your guests with Spring2ACTion.org loaded and ready to go. (Log off any personal accounts first).
- If you are fundraising for a specific organization, send a link to your fundraising page to your friends so they can donate on their phones during the party.
- Get Festive! Hang Spring2ACTion signs or post yard signs. Get Social! Take pictures of the party to post on your Facebook page or to tweet to your followers. Make sure to include #Spring2ACTion and a link to Spring2ACTion.org in all of your posts and tweets!
- Reconnect - Use your Spring2ACTion party to bring old friends back together.
- Bring a dish to pass - Keep your party in budget by hosting a Spring2ACTion potluck.
- Motivate - Let your guests know about the great work done by the participating organizations or the specific organization you are raising money for. Pass out flyers, give a short introduction, or reach out to your favorite organization to invite a staff member to your celebration.
