Family Teams Toolkit
Text for Baby
Help fight premature birth. Text the word BABY to 20222 in order to donate $5 to
the March of Dimes.
It is estimated that $10.5 billion in loose change sits idle in American households.
Imagine how far that would go in helping babies be born healthy.
Collect all the spare change you can find to donate to the March of Dimes. Empty
your coin jar, turn out your pockets, pass out coin-collection bags to friends and
family, set up a coin collection box at your office, urge your local club or church to
hold a special coin drive. If you need help with coin collection bags or containers,
call Scott Conlin in our chapter office at 952-835-3033 ext. 311 or email at
Blue Jeans for Babies
Sell Blue Jeans for Babies pins/stickers, with management approval, of course, to
allow employees to wear blue jeans to work on designated days. This can also be
done at private schools where the students are required to wear uniforms. We
have stickers and pins available, just call Scott at 952-835-3033 ext. 311.
Get everyone together for the big Sunday game for a chili cook-off or an office
competition. Have everyone bring their favorite homemade chili. You could try a
$10 entry fee for the contest and sell the chili for $3 -$5 per serving/or person. Put
numbers on each container of chili before the judging so they are anonymous.
Decide on a prize or just give them the Chili Champ title. It’s a tasty way to help
