Help Sponsor a Family for our 2011 Conference
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Help us raise awareness and desperately needed funds.
We have created a template that will enable you to create your own personal VBF Day of Awareness fundraising website page in just a few easy steps! Tell your personal story and how VBF has helped you. You can even include photos if you wish. Email your fundraising page to family, friends and coworkers. You can create your personal JOIN ME page to coincide with a special fund raising event such as a garage sale, car wash, dinner, walk/run, or even just a friends and family appeal where you will raise money to Sponsor a Family and send them to our conference for free – just because of your effort ! ! !
Here’s how to create your JOIN ME page:
1. Click this link: https://joinme.org/Pages/Login.aspx?P=26690
2. Create a Username and Password and click to create a fundraising page.
3. Click “Edit your personal fundraising page”
4. Edit page title by clicking the blue “edit” box next to page title and then type in your page title and then click the blue “save” box for that section.

6. Scroll down to “Fundraiser’s Text” and click the blue “edit” box. Type in your story and click the blue “save” box for that section.
7. You can download a photo in the “Fundraiser’s image” box. The site only allows one photo. However, if you would like to use two photos, such as a before and after photo, you can email the two photos to VBF’s webmistress, Missy and she will combine the two photos into one jpeg and email it back to you. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need to then download the photo to your site: Click the blue “edit” box. Click “Select”. Find where you saved the photo, highlight the file and click “open”. Click the blue “save” box for that section.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT IT COSTS VBF $500 PER FAMILY TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE/CLINIC and therefore we recommend a minimum goal of $500.

10. Email your page link to family, friends, coworkers, business contacts, etc! VBF will send Thank You emails to all donors for tax deduction purposes.
