The last 100 House Parties event for MorePeaceCorps was so successful (and so much fun!) that the campaign is kicking off a new set of house parties just for the holidays. To sweeten the deal, two generous donors have agreed to match dollar-for-dollar every contribution made to the MorePeaceCorps Campaign through the end of the year, up to $35,000.
Hosting a holiday house party for MorePeaceCorps on Saturday, December 6 (the day after International Volunteer Day) can help the campaign raise some much needed funds. What does the campaign need funds for? Even grassroots campaigns cost money. MorePeaceCorps wants to continue its communications effort, hire interns, produce exciting MorePeaceCorps advocacy videos, organize visits to lawmakers in 2009, implement an email-your-legislator functionality on the website, and much, much more!
Hosting a house party and making a contribution will help make the vision of a bigger, better and bolder Peace Corps a reality. The toolkit for hosting a party (it's easy and fun!) is available for download on the MorePeaceCorps home page.
If you can't host a party on December 6, try to do one any time before the end of the year. And if not, we hope you will consider making a tax deductible holiday gift to the campaign.
