Thank you for your interest in participating in OPERATION HON! Your efforts will go a long way in building awareness of the need for families who go without heat during the harsh winter months, while financially helping them to restore or maintain basic utility services.
The event will kick off on January 13th and end on January 15th at THE AVENUE at White Marsh. Participants will stay in the Ice House for 30 minutes, or until you have met your fundraising goal of $2,500 (team) or $1,000 (individual) or more.
When you sign up to participate, you will be assigned a 30 minute timeslot during which you will stay in the house and raise donations to help you meet your fundraising goal. Participants are encouraged to recruit as many donations in advance as possible and they will be able to contact potential donors by phone, email and social media to solicit contributions while they are in the house. This will increase visibility for both the Fuel Fund of Maryland and OPERATION HON.
While in the Ice House, you will be able to contact potential donors via phone, email, social media, or any other method you wish to solicit contributions. Once you meet your goal, you will be able to vacate the house and feel the warmth.
Participants are provided with all of the tools they will need to reach out to family, friends and co-workers in order to help each participant obtain donations. These items include:
- solicitation letters
- e-mail template
- social media messaging
- access to a personal fundraising page
