A Note From Our Awesome PTA!

Dear Parents,

We are excited to kick-off our annual Smith Stampede fundraiser by going online. You will be able to reach out to friends and family by email, Facebook, and Twitter!

You will receive an email with a link to your child's pledge (“donation”) page by Friday, October 12th, 2018. You do not need to login or change anything. Simply make a donation for whatever you can, and share your child's link with friends and family. We are shooting for 100% participation so no amount is too small.

If you do not receive the email for whatever reason, simply search and find your child's online pledge page here: https://99pledges.com/fund/2018smithstampede

If you would like to text your friends and family, here is some sample sharing text:

YOUR CHILD’S NAME is participating in his/her annual school fundraiser, and would love your support. If you would like to donate, you can do so online at the following link: INSERT YOUR CHILD’S PLEDGE PAGE URL.

Thank you for your support!

If you did not provide your email address to Smith PTA your child will not receive a donation page. If you would like a donation page for your child simply provide your teacher with your email address or give them your approval to provide Smith PTA with your email address.

Thank you and Good Luck!!

Tyra Miller

VP Fundraising Smith PTA
