Your Personal Fundraising Page

With great power comes great responsibility. That is why I am fundraising to help kids in foster care have their own superhero: a CASA volunteer who will help guide them through the toughest moments. Will you join forces with me by donating to help every kid who needs one have their own superhero volunteer?

Thank you for helping me be a superhero for other kids!

Social Media Posts (Use the hashtage #howtobeahero on all social posts)

*Almost all social media channels require account-holders to be 13 or older, so we encourage parents to take a hands-on approach to this project and use their own accounts for these postings in order to monitor social media activity for their tiny hero!

Hi Super Friend (or INSERT NAME),

I’ve always wanted to be a superhero. I’ve grown up with superheroes all around me: The Avengers, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man… they’re everywhere! But I always hoped I would one day see a superhero in real life.

Then I heard about CASA, and how they are real-life heroes for kids in foster care. CASA volunteers take the time to get to know kids and to be there for them when things are hard. They talk to the kid’s family, teachers and doctors. Then they go to court to tell a judge what the kid needs.

Now that I know more about foster care, I want to help CASA be there for kids who need us. So, on September 15, I’ll get the chance to be a superhero for other kids at the CASA Superhero Run!

I may be too young to be a CASA volunteer, but I can be a hero by raising [$YOUR GOAL - $250 or more] so CASA can help more kids. Will you help me be a superhero by donating today at https://www.casasuperherorun.com/donateind/yourpersonallink ?

[YOUR NAME]
