Are you interested in trying a proven fundraiser for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign – and having a lot of fun as well? Read on.
The Good Words for Africa Scrabble© Benefit is not only an easy fundraiser to organize but it has the potential to harness the power of using words to make a difference. More than twenty grandmothers groups across Canada have put on this fundraiser and for some groups, it is so popular that it’s become an annual event in their communities!
Now you too can become part of the Scrabble© phenomenon, by rallying your community to gather pledges and play their best game. The originators of this idea, the Eastside Grannies from Sherwood Park, Alberta have put together a Good Words for Africa Scrabble© Benefit Kit (Revised 2011 edition) that includes pledge sheets, ‘cheat sheets’, scoring grids, serendipitous experiences plus many more useful ideas and suggestions about how to organize this team-format, word-game benefit.
Please contact us to request a kit or to find out more about this enjoyable and lucrative way of raising funds to strengthen the efforts of heroic African grandmothers and the children in their care.
