Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

How To Promote Your Non Profit Organization

How To Promote Your Non-Profit Event

Form a committee to promote the event. Discuss ideas of how to promote without spending a lot of money.

Food Items Sell Best. I Found This Site. Fundraising Assortments

For Craft Fairs OTC Direct, Inc Craft supplies for kids and adults, scrap-booking supplies, beads for jewelry making, Sunday School crafts, stickers & more!
I have no interests in either of these companies.

Also, Box Tops for Education has helped America’s schools earn over $400 million since 1996. You can earn cash for your child’s school by clipping Box Tops coupons from hundreds of participating products. Box Tops also offers easy ways to earn even more cash for your school online.

When I was 11 years old, I used to sell Christmas And All Occasion Cards, etc. door to door. This is no longer practical and I looked for a decent wholesaler but the all occasion card business isn't what it used to be in 1961. Although you could google Wholesale Christmas All Occasion Cards and see if anything appeals to you as good for fund raising sales.

Decide how much you can spend on advertising and what is available for free. Produce fliers and distribute them. You can mail them out, post them on bulletin boards or hand them out.

Make tickets that you can sell for the event. Many people will buy tickets, even if they are unable to attend the event.

Submit the event information to any and all community calendars. Generally, there is no charge for this service.

Use the internet to announce the event.
If you send an email to your friends and they send an email to their friends, the word will get out to a lot of extra individuals.

Ask local businesses to sponsor your event.  If they provide the money, they can write it off as an advertising expense and you can promote their generosity along with your event.

Publicity For Your Organization & Event
Publicity goes hand in hand with promotion, but it also goes a step further.  
Radio station and local television promotions reach the greatest audience.  Contact program directors about running promotional messages and the possibility of broadcasts from your event.  

Take lots of pictures during your event. These will make great press releases and thank-you mementos for sponsors.  

Always, always send thank-yous to your sponsors and promoters.  Send them directly to the sponsor and put thank-yous in the local newspapers.  Not only will it give your event more publicity, it will show your sponsors your appreciation of their generosity.  

Keep your organization in the news. Send press releases every time something happens in your organization, no matter how trivial it may seem. The more you get your name out there, the more people will rally around your cause.♥♥♥

Assisting Jews in the Former Soviet Union since 1975

The Adopt a Bubbe (or Zayde) program reaches out to elderly Jews and the handicapped in Ukraine and Belarus.

"Action" recruits coordinators who know their Jewish community, and asks them to find the most vulnerable Jewish retirees who need help. Many live on their own in poor conditions and some are unable to leave their homes.

With "Action" funds, coordinators purchase and deliver fresh fruits, vegetables, cheese and meats directly to their homes. When needed, "Action" has also provided eyeglasses or hearing aids, a lamp to read by, or coal for heat in the winter months.

One could almost say that; Action For Post-Soviet Jewry, works with clients one shovel or one fresh chicken, or one pair of eyeglasses at a time.

I have no association with this organization. I just think it's a great charity.
