Participate in Homeless for a Night as a team or as an individual – either way it’s going to be a meaningful experience and a chance to meet like-minded people all rallying for the same cause!
Homeless for a Night is a fun event that is open to participants of all ages. Although we encourage you to recruit your friends and family to join you in the experience, it’s not a requirement! A team of one still counts!
Registration is easy. Whether you are participating on a team or as an individual you’ll need to register on our secure sign up page, pay the registration fee, and set up a personal fundraising page.
2. Set Your Fundraising Goal
The minimum fundraising requirement is $100, but we won’t stop you from exceeding that! We encourage you to challenge yourself and raise as much as you can! Put your heart and a little creativity into it and the donations will add up in no time.
3. Set Up Your Fundraising Page
Add a photo and a story. Tell people why you’ve decided to Fight the Night.
4. Send an Email
Send a quick email (we’ve even created a template for you) to your friends, family, and coworkers giving them the opportunity to join you in the fight against the harsh realities of youth homelessness by supporting your fundraising campaign.
Gather your friends, your family, your coworkers and enter as a team! Rallying together with friends, family, and colleagues will help you hit a bigger target…plus more people just means more fun!
1. Pick a Team Leader
Pick someone awesome to lead your team to its fundraising goal. As the team leader, you’ll need to register the team online and help everyone stay motivated and on track.
2. Pick a Team Name
Choose something that reflects the personality and the mission of your group.
3. Recruit Your Peeps
There is no limit to how big your team can be, so grab your phone and start calling, texting or emailing your contact lists.
4. Have a Team Meeting
You can all collect pledges individually, but it’s a lot more fun when you do it as a team! So meet up in person or hop onto Google chat for a team meeting. Discuss your fundraising goals and brainstorm some ideas to make them happen. Check-in with each other often!
5. Turn it into a Challenge
Why not use a little friendly competition to keep you motivated? Who will raise the most and come out at the top of the leader board?
