HOW CAN I OR OTHER PEOPLE DONATE?
Please use the Network For Good fundraising site we have set up to design your chapter's fundraising page through these instructions . Your chapter “Team” page should be set up by your chapter’s service chair or similar. Every sister can join the team page and track progress together! Speak to family and friends and ask for their support by donating a certain dollar amount per crunch completed at the Crunch-a-Thon or by making a flat donation. If your donor decides they would like to donate per crunch, you will need to go back after you have completed your crunches and be sure the donor donated the correct amount. If you or your donor prefer not to use the website, please mail any checks and monetary donations to Elisabeth Wydotis (9207 Newbury Court, Prospect, KY 40059) by February 17th. Checks can be made out to the NormaLeah Ovarian Cancer Initiative (memo: SAO Crunch-A-Thon). Anyone who donates will receive a letter from NormaLeah Initiative for tax purposes.
