Many times our listeners are looking for a way to "give back" encourage other Christians in their daily walk, thank the Lord for their blessings, or simply to evangelize and share the gospel. Many will make a gift and invest in the station. Others will feel a call to "do more"and are looking for opportunities to give of their time and talent. If this is you, a Third Party Event may be a good match.
So what is a third party event? Well, basically it's when an individual, club/organization or business wants to do something fun to raise donations for the station; like maybe having a rummage sale, lemonade stand or art auction! The cool thing about third party event's anyone can do them and they can be as intricate or simple as you want. So maybe hosting a black tie gala is your thing? Or maybe you want to host a neighbor bike ride--both are awesome in our eyes!
Are you looking for a way to teach your kiddo(s) about "philanthropy" and giving back? This may be the perfect way to get them involved with the station they love. How about designating birthday party gifts or hosting a gift wrapping party around Christmas? The more creative the better! The most important thing is, to have fun and know we are here to help!
