Messages of Hope


Get your group together and write supportive notes to stem cell transplant patients. Use the template provided, create your own, or collect blank note cards. Once you’re finished, collect the notes and mail them to us in the enclosed envelope. We’ll deliver your messages to local hospitals! This is a great activity to engage in the mission and share with your network to ask for donations.  

Pin Up Toolkit


These small cards, known as "pin ups," can be bought for a minimum donation. The individual signs their card (maybe adds a message of hope) and then the card is displayed in a highly visible location—e.g., around the principal’s door, near the main door, or as locker badges. As more people participate, the display makes an impactful statement AND raises critical funds for patients. 

Text-a-Thon
 

Get your group together for a day of texting for a cause! Reserve a room at school or meet at the local coffee shop to text as many people as possible, asking for donations. This kit will take you through how to plan and execute a successful text-a-thon. 

Offline Contribution Form


Do you have cash and/or change from a fundraiser? Does someone want to write you a check? If so, please turn cash into a cashier’s check. Checks should be made to: NMDP Foundation. Then, use this form to enter your information and mail everything to the address at the bottom of the form. All donations mailed in with the completed form will be added to your fundraising page.

 

If you have any questions or need help, please reach out to us at fundraising@nmdp.org.

Thank you for your commitment and generous support.
