March 1st will be the kick-off to the Mentor Round-Up, a 3-month period of Mentor Recruitment where YOU are the key to it all.
Mission: Have friends, family, co-workers, etc. become a mentor to one of the kids on our waitlist.
Time period: March 1, 2011 to May 31, 2011
Rules for winning $200 to Ruth’s Chris:
One person you’ve recruited who is MATCHED with a mentee = ONE point. Most points before May 31st wins the $200 gift certificate. Simple.
BONUS: If your recruit calls in to the Mission for Mentors Telethon on April 6th b/w 5 & 8 pm, pledges their time, mentions your name, and gets matched before May 31st you get TWO points for that recruit.
We know this isn’t about the yummy food (though it doesn’t hurt); it’s about helping our kids. The more kids we help, the closer we are to reaching our Grant goals. The closer we are to reaching our goals, the more secure our funding is to continue the program and help even more kids. So start spreading the word that we have over 80 kids on our waitlist, and they are all eager to have a mentor. And no, these kids aren’t scary. They’re kids. They want someone to play with them, care about them, help them understand why 6 times 6 is 36, and why “they’re” and “their” mean two totally different things.
We are more than happy to come and give presentations about mentoring at your Workplace, Service Organization, HOA meeting, Sports practice, etc. There are so many people out there who are willing to give their time to a child. Help us find them.
