You can start saving your small change (pennies, nickels, dimes). Remember that for every 10 cents you save, you will be providing an oral rehydration packet that will help save the life of a starving person. ALL of the small change you save will be used only for hunger relief. How to donate your small change? Options:
Put it in your checking account and send a check to Small Change.
Bring it with you when you attend any presentation by Don Eaton.
If your are in the Portland, Oregon or Santa Fe area, call us and we'll come and pick it up!
You can become an individual sponsor by making a monthly pledge. Small change needs help with a variety of program costs and help in providing a minimum monthly base of support for the executive director as he spreads the seeds of the Small Change vision for a more compassionate world. We deeply appreciate pledges large and small and suggest a minimum of $10 per month.
You can make a one time donation.
You can sponsor a Small change house concert. Ask a group of friends to gather in your home for a Small Change house concert with Don Eaton. We suggest a minimum of 10 people if possible. We will also supply you with Small change brochures that introduce Small Change and Don Eaton, so that you can use it to promote your house concert.
You can help arrange a booking for Don Eaton and the Small Change program -- a concert, keynote address, speaking engagement, assembly, workshop, retreat, seminar, etc. Your school, college, university, church, business, company, service organization etc., can contract with Small Change to have Don Eaton present a program for your next meeting, event or conference -- local, state, or national. (We can supply you with "reviews" and Letters of recommendation from around the state or around the country).
You can help Small Change secure grants and donations and corporate sponsorships. Would your company, business, place of work be open to inviting don Eaton to present the Small Change vision? We would like the opportunity to present Small change to businesses and companies and their employees. Imagine what one company or business or office could do if the employees started saving their small change!
HOW YOUR PLEDGES AND DONATIONS ARE USED
THE EDUCATION/ADMINISTRATION FUND: Small Change is MOST SUSTAINED BY THE FAITHFUL SUPPORT OF PLEDGERS AND PATRONS WHO DONATE ON A MONTHLY, QUARTERLY, OR YEARLY BASIS TO THIS FUND, WHICH IS THE LIFEBLOOD OF SMALL CHANGE. This fund pays for all of the expenses of running our non-profit. (If we were a church, which we are NOT, this would be equivalent to the "general operations" fund that keeps a church going on a daily basis). Without your support of this fund, Small Change simply wouldn't exist. When donating to this fund, PLEASE REMEMBER TO WRITE "ED/ADM" ON THE MEMO LINE of your tax-deductible check made out to "Small Change."
THE HUNGER FUND: If you want to direct your donation to physical hunger relief ONLY, or if you are writing a check to Small Change for the "small change" you or your group have been saving for hunger relief, PLEASE REMEMBER TO WRITE "HUNGER" ON THE MEMO LINE. (If we were a church, which we are NOT, this would be the equivalent of the "overseas mission fund" or "humanitarian relief" fund.) Please KNOW that EVERY CENT you donate to this fund is used ONLY for direct relief of physical hunger.
