Chag Sameach, Global Shabbat, and Can-Tribute!
As Sukkot comes to an end, I’d like to congratulate you all on a hugely successful social media push. The #10DaysofAwesome campaign reached over 400,000 unique people, and over 500 different teens took part in the push. It was a monumental success and is definitely foreshadowing the incredible year to come.
With the conclusion of the high holiday season, it is time to turn our focus towards our Movement Initiatives, Global Shabbat and Can-Tribute. Global Shabbat is from November 6-7, 2015 and we are shooting to engage over 500 different communities in 30 different countries, as well as connect with local Holocaust Survivors. If you haven’t started planning your yet, I’d love to get on a call and figure out the logistics; just shoot me an email and we can get to work.
Can-Tribute is now live. (Here) is the website where you can document your collected cans until November 2nd. Some awesome programming resources will be out in the coming weeks to help drive canned good collections. One noteworthy is Trick-or-Treat So People Can Eat. Together, with your chapter you dress up and go around on Halloween, and instead of collecting candy, you ask for cans. It’s a great way to bring in large quantities of cans in one night, and have an engaging chapter program. Another interesting way to boost your can totals, is to partner with you school and host a district wide canned food drive. If you need help arranging a prescreening, creating flyers, or anything else, reach out to me or your regional director.
Lastly, for all Sh'lichim, both regional, council, and at the chapter level, there will be a movement-wide call this Sunday, October 4 at 4:00pm EST. Deena and I would love if you could join us for an array of valuable information for improving Judaic programming, successfully running the movement initiatives, and capitalizing on our movement’s momentum. We’re working hard to put together a call that’s going to be beneficial, as well as interactive for all of you, and we fully expect all Regional and Council Sh'lichim to be in attendance.
Thanks, HunterReturn to AZA and BBG Movement Updates
