When you strongly believe in something it is easy to work hard to support it. This statement has been proven over and over as you watch the fans of Clay Aiken and The National Inclusion Project join together in creative ways to support their goals.
It was announced this morning that The National Inclusion Project raised over $465,000 at the recent Gala that honored the 2009 Champions. The official announcement on the National Inclusion Project website gave credit to all the supporters for raising such a amazing amount of money. According to the site, “The funds will be used to give children with disabilities the opportunity to experience life along side their typical peers.”
Last week, The National Inclusion Project earned over $25,000 through America’s Giving Challenge. Fans of Clay Aiken and the Project worked together through their donations to support their favorite charity.
In October, supporters added their e-mails as a way of voting at the Christie Cookie Giveaway. By encouraging their friends and family members to join in, the fans won the contest and $10,000.
What about Wrapping For Inclusion? Fans all over the nation are gearing up to wrap packages at malls and stores for donations to the National Inclusion Project. It’s an excellent way to earn some money and promote knowledge of inclusion at the same time.
Then there is GoodSearch/Buy. This site pays for for each search or purchase you make through their site.
Deck The Halls For Inclusion gives you the opportunity to buy some beautiful Holiday Wreaths with a portion of the money going to The National Inclusion Project.
How about Empties 4 Cash? Turn in your ink cartridges for cash. Another great way to earn money for the National Inclusion Project.
The NC Nomads have ebay auctions every Tuesday and Saturday and 100% of the money goes to The National Inclusion Project
Linda Learn of the Northeast PA Voices for Inclusion Group is very creative and hard-working too. She is one of the many fans in Pennsylvania that support Clay and the National Inclusion Project in as many ways as possible.
This holiday season, their group decided to try something different to raise more money for the National Inclusion Project. They designed and ordered a limited edition “National Inclusion Project” Keepsake Ornament.
The four inch etched glass ornament has a production limit of 100 pieces. The beautiful ornament can be displayed on your desk or in your home, year-round, by using an ornament stand and will serve as an elegant conversation piece or a way to create awareness and spread the word about the National Inclusion Project. It can also be hung on your Christmas tree for the holidays or display it during your “Wrapping For Inclusion” table.
This project is an authorized fundraiser for the National Inclusion Project and the charity will receive $10.00 for each ornament that is sold. The price for the glass ornament is $25.00 which includes a beautiful, lined presentation box. Shipping is free.
The ornaments will be shipped to you during the first week in December.
The glass ornament is gorgeous and I hope it is a sell-out. Thank you to Linda, Bonnie and the entire Northeast PA Voices for Inclusion for your hard work on this fundraiser. Every penny is important towards the goal of full inclusion for all kids!
