Below is the schedule for this Fall’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) fairs. If you are interested in helping, you would sit by a table, hand out Spastic Paraplegia Foundation (SPF) literature and answer questions.
Most people do not know what HSP or PLS are or what the SPF does. We are hoping that volunteers can staff these booths and help educate federal employees about what we are all about. In turn, we are hoping that they will pick the SPF to contribute to.
If you have questions or can help, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or
615-479-7369. I will get you registered to participate, mail you plenty of brochures, a table banner and a sample script to use if you like.
Most CFC fairs last only a couple of hours and are full of friendly volunteers and staff all geared towards raising money to help those in need.
Each year, millions of dollars are raised from the CFC. The bad news is because so little is known about HSP, PLS and the SPF very few federal employees chose the SPF to give to. Please help us educate more donors about what we go through and help raise more money for HSP and PLS research.
If you can help, please let me know as soon as possible. Many locations have cut off dates that we need to register by.
Dates listed with ** are for short presentations to a group of volunteers, usually just 2 or 3 minutes in length. There are no CFC fairs with these dates. I have a CFC script that can be used that will cover general information about HSP, PLS and the Spastic Paraplegia Foundation. There is also a longer speech available that you can use to educate larger groups and yourselves about HSP.

We are excited that Giving Tuesday is coming up soon. It is a once a year event and is a perfect accent to the holiday season. Unbeknownst to the commercial world, the holiday season is not about who gets more for me, me, me. It is about that special feeling you get when you know you have really helped out someone you care about or love. It is knowing that the dollar you give today is going to blossom into a million dollars worth of relief from suffering for the people with HSP and PLS. Welcome to Giving Tuesday and we Thank You for your consideration.
When Clinical Trials begin in 2017 it may require as many people as possible for the Clinical Trial to be effective. If you have HSP or PLS, please add your information to our data base so we can keep you informed. We are missing a lot people's email address, so if you just want to add your email address. just enter your name, address and email and we'll add it. That way, we will be able to reach you quickly at a lower cost. Your privacy is very important to us. We will never share any of your information with any individual or company without your permission.
We operate out of the strength of our community, caring friends and sponsors. Your help makes a difference! Our volunteers give many hours of their time annually, and the opportunities to help are as varied as our helpers. Read more.
