#GivingTuesday & #ODSgiving

Remember the Fabergé shampoo commercial from the 1970s?  “I told two friends, then they told two friends, and so on… and so on...”   That’s peer-to-peer fundraising!

Also known as community-driven fundraising, peer-to-peer fundraising allows our supporters to raise money on our behalf, using online tools and social media.  And it really works: people are much more likely to give when they are asked by someone they know personally.

This #ODSgiving  season, join us in raising funds

to protect Outdoor School funding!
