Help Our Chapter and Create a Memorial Website in the “Friends Asking Friends” Program
You can help our The Compassionate Friends East of the River CT Chapter create a website to honor the memory of a child in your family by participating in the Walk to Remember through the Friends Asking Friend fundraising program.
Many chapters raise enough money through this program to fund their chapter’s financial needs for the entire year.
Everything happens on TCF National’s Friends Asking Friends site at www.tcfwalktoremember.org Our Virtual Walk Fund-Raising Team is called HOLDING HANDS HUGGING HEARTS and you can find us by clicking on “more” under Team Rank.
If we become one of the five top fundraising teams, you’ll find us listed on the Home page with the other leaders. Once you find our team, you can join it by clicking on “Event Enrollment” and then “join a team.” Scroll down to our team and then click on it and fill out the personal information requested. List your personal fundraising goal on behalf of the chapter (minimum goal is $500, but whatever you actually raise is great). You’ll then see a confirmation page. Hit “Continue” and you can now create a website in memory of your child.
The website is very simple to make and you can upload a picture of your child (sibling or grandchild), use the default picture (the Walk to Remember logo) or a generic picture from the library. You can actually upload up to two pictures. You can then preview your website and when done, click on “submit.” That’s all there is to joining the team and creating your page. After that, you can use “tools” to help you send e-mails to friends, relatives, and business acquaintances asking them to make a donation to honor the life of your child, sibling, or grandchild.
Or you can contact your friends on Facebook.
Please join with us in this great event! For more information, write TCFEastOfTheRiverCt@gmailcom or by calling Bettie-Jeanne at 860-870-7581.
