Hi my name is Marc Goodman and I am the co-fundraising chair for Team Swift.
Team Swift is the teen board that has worked very hard this year to help Swift Youth Foundation be as great as it possibly can. Our latest challenge is to do our part in the Arizona Gives Day fundraising campaign. We have spent the last couple of months building our fundraising pages by adding incredible photos and videos that reflect our love and passion for Camp and descriptions of why we fund-raise for Swift. We have also been brainstorming on how to get people involved in this amazing opportunity to donate or raise money for Swift.
All of us now have amazing fundraising pages that show people why Swift is important to us and hopefully our hard work will pay off and we can do something incredible for Swift Youth Foundation. The donations will go to help Swift Youth Foundation put on amazing events for the children. On our pages you can see what some donation amounts can pay for. For example $5 gives one kids a grilled cheese and tomato soup meal and $25 dollars buys a sleeping bag for a kid. This experience has taught us some valuable communication skills as well as creative ways to fundraise. It allowed us to participate directly with the rest of Camp Swift and work together to raise as much money as possible.
I hope that everyone reading this will go out and donate or make their own page on https://azgives.givebig.org/c/GivesDay/a/campswift and fundraise for Swift Youth Foundation!
