How to get ready for the party
1. DOWNLOAD AND CREATE YOUR LETTER.
Download our Art Buddies Form Letter (DOC).
Personalize it with your name and address at the top, or use your own letterhead. If you've been an Art Buddy, add a photo with your child (or choose an image from our Galleries).
Leave space for a hand-written personal note. Those personal touches really make a difference!
2. CREATE YOUR MAILING LIST.
Compile a list of 10 or more addresses of people you know.
This fundraiser is effective because it's personal---donors are inspired by YOUR passion for Art Buddies!
Not sure you can come up with 10 or more names? Download our Ideas to Develop Your List (PDF).
3. PRINT AS MANY LETTERS AS YOUR NUMBER OF CONTACTS.
We hope you’ll come with 10, or more if you can!
