The Assist Project

assistYour club has the opportunity to spread hundreds of smiles this season and qualify for prizes while doing it. Through the Assist Project, club teams across the country create cards for cancer patients while raising money for research through a pledge drive. Pledges can be parents, grandparents, friends or whomever you want to fund you and your teammates in this mission. Use your social media network to show your participation and support for this project with #DigPink. Encourage your friends and family to donate to your team’s campaign page by tagging three people in your posts.

The Assist Project has four easy steps: Raise, Design, Share, and Send. Get started now!

RAISE

To join the Assist Project, create a team campaign page and set your goal. Your pledges can donate easily to your campaign page and you can keep track of your funds raised. Using the campaign page system is the quickest and easiest way to raise money and reach your goal. If you are having trouble setting up your team’s campaign page, click here for help.

Once your campaign page is set up, send a message to your friends and families asking for their support. You can use this email template or create your own.

All forms, funds and cards must be sent to Side-Out by March 14 to be eligible.

DESIGN

Head to your local arts and crafts store and pick up supplies to make cards with your team. Host a party with your team using these card making activities [insert link]. We encourage you to be creative and have fun.  Remember to follow The Side-Out Foundation’s design guidelines to ensure your cards will be delivered to patients.

  • Step 1: Take a photo of your card and upload it to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or all three using #DigPink.
