WHAT IS INVOLVED?
STEP ONE: Register
Participants will be asked to pre-register for the challenge (prior to Feb 22nd). We ask participants to pay a $20 registration fee to help us cover our event costs (this fee is not tax deductible). We have a free registration option for those who would like to participate but do not have a credit card or are otherwise unable to pay the $20 fee. For this option we ask that registrants try to raise a minimum of $20.
A fundraising page will be automatically created for each registrant. We've set the default amount to $500 but participants can change their own personal goal to whatever they like. The sky's the limit!
STEP TWO: Select method of communication. During registration participants will be asked to select a method of connection in order to receive instructions on Feb 22nd. They can choose from:
- Twitter (they must follow us on Twitter)
- Text or SMS (they will need to provide their cell phone information)
- Facebook Messenger (they will need to join our Facebook Group)
STEP THREE: On Feb 1st we will send a test message to ensure all participants are connected and able to receive instructions.
STEP FOUR: On Feb 22nd participants will receive instructions via their preferred method of contact. Some will choose to follow all instructions, some may simply observe the campaign and some might do something in between. We encourage participants to do what works for them.
STEP FIVE: Engage with others
During and after the challenge participants are encouraged to dialogue with others, share their thoughts and experiences with one another and provide us with feedback.
