Hello, body of UGA Miracle!
If you have access to social media or know someone who does, you will know that this Thursday is UGA Miracle's $100 Day. Now, you might be asking yourself, What is $100 Day? Or, Why do I care? Or, How in the world does someone raise $100 in one day? If you found yourself wondering any of these things, we've got your answers (plus more!!!) right here.
$100 Day is a relatively new UGA Miracle tradition. It began in 2014 as a way to get people excited about Dance Marathon, as it kickstarts our 100 day countdown to DM. $100 Day comes complete with a Jimmy Buffett-themed rave, a hype-room, photo booths, DJs, and most importantly, excitement surrounding raising money FTK.
$100 Day isn't only about getting excited, it's also about setting a scary goal, and then working hard to achieve it (and this video explains it better than I can). Every person involved with UGA Miracle is challenged to raise $100 on $100 Day. One day. That's 24 hours. (DO THE MATH). This crazy amount of money in a very short amount of time should make you think about your heart behind UGA Miracle and your purpose for wanting to raise money FTK (the worthiest cause, in our opinion). Not only should $100 Day excite you to get your friends to register for Dance Marathon, it should also push you to find your purpose here in UGA Miracle and fan your flame FTK.
With that being said, here are some helpful fundraising tips and some examples of purpose that led people to success in $100 Days of the past.
Some fundraising tips because fundraising is scary without a scary goal attached to it!
Now that you have some tips for the fundraising part of $100 Day, it's time to CELEBRATE. There are two incredibly fun parts of $100 Day that you get to take part in. First comes Miracle At Midnight, our event TONIGHT at Hedges on Broad from 9:30 p.m. to Midnight to kick off the start of $100 Day with a series of raves that you won't want to miss. You can buy tickets here. Second comes all day TOMORROW. In Tate room 473, from 8 a.m. until Midnight, is the UGA Miracle HYPE ROOM. There will be dancing. There will be food. So get hype. Finally, at Midnight, UGA Miracle as an organization heads over to Herty Field where we reveal our total for this year's $100 Day. We are always astounded, humbled, and pumped up by the amount, (because since the first $100 Day in 2014, we've quadrupled our totals) and we don't think this year will be any different.
So come on and join us for a scary, exciting, and so worth it 24 hours! FTK, always.
