TweetANet has started - 10 Things You Can Do to Help the Joint Mosquito Net Fundraiser
Because of this, Wakitaka village is proud to join hands with the local representatives of the Jinja Central and Mawoito villages here at Nabuur for a joint fundraising effort. The goal is to raise awareness about the impact of malaria on our communities and receive enough money in donations to purchase 1000 mosquito nets which will then be distributed among each of the villages involved. You can help us!
HERE ARE 10 THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO TODAY!
1. Join the Tweet-A-Net Fan Page on Facebook to follow all the latest news and updates about our joint effort to raise funds for mosquito nets.
2. Tell your friends and share our posts on Facebook. Invite them to be a part of the event.
3. Join the Fundraising Project on Betterplace.org and rate the project.
4. Become an Advocate for our project – advocates write up a short recommendation to voice support for what we are doing. Advocates are very important to get a higher ranking on the website and thereby more visitors.
5. If you have visited any of the projects in Mawoito, Jinja Central or Wakitaka – become a Visitor . Visitors are very important to our fundraiser because they help to validate that these are real projects helping real people on the ground in Uganda.
6. Email your friends and help us spread the word about our project.
7. Share the link to the fundraising project in your email signature.
8. Donate your instant messenger status update and help us publicize a link to the fundraiser.
