With I’ll Fight Day 2014 only being 47 days away, you better be planning something fierce already. If you haven’t started, get your butt into gear! Of course, you can’t pull this off on your own, so get your friends from the Corps together (probably wouldn’t hurt to invite your Youth Leader and/or Corps Officer, too), and start throwing out some ideas.
If you’re like me, and you need help coming up with ideas, there are a couple of places you can go to literally steal them. First of all, you should hit up www.illfightday.com. It has over 50 ideas crafted specifically for the purposes of I’ll Fight Day. There are a lot of service project/outreach ideas out there, but some don’t make sense for the subzero temps of December. The IFD website has thought through this stuff, so stop there. first. I particularly like the Phone Card Giveaway, the Single Mom Spa Day, and Laundromat Outreach. Not sure where to find these ideas on the website exactly? Just click the “How Does It Happen?” tab, and you’ll figure it out:
Another resource you might consider checking out is www.30hourfamine.org. The 30 Hour Famine is an awareness event created by World Vision that has service projects tied into it. Head over to their website, and click under Do The Event -> Plan Your Famine -> Service Projects:
If you find some other awesome resources, please share with the rest of us by posting it to your Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag, #IFD14.
