Do you have a great idea for The Longest Day and want to get more people involved? Think about all the people whose lives you touch and ask them to join you in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Here are some tips to help identify potential volunteers, participants, and donors. Before you know it, you’ll have a whole list of people to ask for support!

At work:

  1. Reach out to Human Resources and ask the company would they support a “give back” or “volunteer” day so employees can participate in The Longest Day?
  2. Give a brief talk at the next staff meeting to let people know about your plans for The Longest Day.
  3. Start a competition with other departments to see who can recruit the most team members or raise the most money.
  4. Host a lunch-and-learn or bake sale to raise awareness and funds.
  5. Ask your company to match donations made toward your campaign.

Your membership organization:

  1. Reach out to the membership director of philanthropy Chair to let them know about your plans for The Longest Day and ask for member participation.
  2. Speak up at your next chapter meeting to let people know about your plans for The Longest Day.
  3. Ask if there is an opportunity to be featured in our organizations’ newsletter or blog and share your story there, asking others to join you or to donate.

Gym, yoga or fitness studio:

  1. Request to speak with the manager or get their contact information. Ask if they would promote The Longest Day or donate a portion of a day’s class or membership fees to your campaign.
  2. Post a flier or poster on a bulletin board and add a link to your page.
  3. Wear your Longest Day t-shirt. You’d be surprised how often people stop and ask about it.

At school, in your community or place of worship:

  1. Post a flier or poster on a bulletin board and add a link to your page.
  2. Host a bake sale or lemonade stand to spread the word and recruit supporters.

It’s just that easy. Ready, set…GO!
