Because our top priority is to keep ALL OF YOU safe and to do our part to slow the spread of the corona virus,
WHILE the needs of the hungry here in Fayetteville and worldwide are greater than ever,
We are introducing…
The VIRTUAL CROP Hunger Walk
What does that mean??
Along with your team, come up with an alternative way to participate. Continue to recruit walkers and get sponsors, as always, just for an alternative activity.
Like what? Here are a few ideas team captains have suggested:
• Plan a hike on a local trail where social distancing is possible – share about it on social media and in emails.
• Contact Fayetteville Urban Ministry, our local recipient agency, to see how you can help with their changing volunteer needs.
• Ask individual walkers to come up with their own activity, and PLEASE share your/their ideas with us to perhaps inspire other walkers.
• Have your team (or individual walkers) video themselves talking about why they participate in the CROP Walk and why it is important to them. Post it on social media using #EndHungerNow and #VirtualCROPHungerWalk. (The National CWS office may share it!) Remember to wear any CROP gear! Make sure to tag your friends and potential donors (and challenge others to do likewise) and include your personal/team fundraising page link.
This is new to all of us, and we welcome suggestions about how to virtually bring everyone together while we help as many hungry people here in Fayetteville and around the world as we possibly can. We are being called, more than ever, to step up and help vulnerable neighbors wherever they may be!! Fayetteville Urban Ministry and CWS will need our support even more after this crisis is over.
Holding each other in the light! Stay healthy and inspired. It is more important now than it has ever been.
Together, we can raise funds, walk together and help end hunger in our community and around the world!
