Want to support communities who have been devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria? Organize a pop-up giving circle for your friends and family to support disaster relief.
Our friends at Repair the World provided us with this list of organizations doing much-needed work in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Together with our Facilitator Guide and Participant Workbook, you can easily guide your friends, family, colleagues, teammates, mommy group, or anyone else through this 90-minute giving experience. Start by pooling your donations, and finish by giving much more away to a worthy organization than you ever would have on your own!
These materials give you everything your group will need to:
Ask friends, family, co-workers, fellow alumni of a program or university, neighbors…anyone who wants to do some good in the world in an evening of smart, focused and fun giving.
Find a place to get together – someone's living room, a local café or bar, the nearest Moishe House, an office meeting room… wherever is most conducive to gathering, talking, and having a great time.
Decide how much people will contribute – give-what-you-can or a set amount ($18, $50, $100, $180)…whatever works best for your group.
Have a great time, and don't forget to take a great photo and tag it #PopupCircle on social media!
Print and use the Pop-up Circle document to guide your group through the 90-minute process, step by step.
Add your event to the growing list of all Pop-up Circle experiences happening around the world by filling out our quick post-event survey.
It's a great way to get a taste for how a giving circle works, with minimal prep work. If you are interested in starting a full-scale giving circle after your pop-up experience, we'd be happy to help.
