Create a 50for50 to create a difference!
This year, we invite you to join others all over the country in a year-long creative endeavor to spread the love for the children of Haiti. Celebrate 50 years of Grace Children's Hospital by raising funds to ensure its bright future for another 50 years of ministry—and many more!
We challenge you to create 50 of your own ways that you can help: your personal 50for50
- Cycle 50 miles and take pledges for each mile you ride
- Host a fancy dinner and charge $50 a ticket (try to get 50 attendees!)
- Knit 50 scarfs, sell them, and donate the proceeds
- Organize a garage sale with a goal of selling 50 items
- Challenge 50 friends and family members to each make a donation
- Invite 50 friends to join us on Facebook
There is no end to the creative possibilities, and all age groups can get involved. Create your own project, or get a group together to take the challenge on as a team! As long as you have a compassion to help others, your 50for50 will celebrate Grace Children's Hospital's success and show that you are all part of its future!
+ What is a 50for50 and what does it mean?
50for50 is the name of the year-long fundraising campaign to raise unrestricted funds for International Child Care in honor of Grace Children’s Hospital’s 50 year anniversary. We are challenging individuals and teams across the country create their own creative 50for50 campaign to raise funds on behalf of ICC. 50for50 means "50 [insert your idea] for the 50th Anniversary."
+ How do I get started?
- Decide on what you’re 50for50 is. Are you making and selling 50 items? Running 50 miles? Asking 50 friends to donate? Your 50for50 should be unique to you and something you’ll enjoy.
