The thought of organizing a whole fundraiser might seem a little over your head. Maybe you don’t live in NH where the meeting took place, but still want to raise money to help Danny through this. One simple idea is to make donation jars, like the ones pictured below, and display them at local businesses (ski shops, coffee shops, etc.).
Make them fun and crafty. Get as creative as you want. Print out and tape the following onto your jar:
On January 3rd of 2011, Danny Toumarkine suffered from a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) while snowboarding at Teton Pass. He is currently in the ICU at the Benefis Hospital in Great Falls, MT. Danny has had two craniotomy surgeries and is in stable condition. Though heavily sedated, Danny shows signs that he will eventually recuperate from this injury, but it will be a long road to recovery.
Conor, Danny’s brother, has created a website in his name (www.dannyisthebomb.com). This website aims to raise awareness of TBI along with supporting Danny’s family and himself through this indispensable moment in their lives. Danny and his family would be grateful for any donation you could contribute to aid in the financial assistance that is essential to Danny’s recovery and current medical care.
If you would like to contribute further or in a different way please visit www.dannyisthebomb.com.
Thank you for your contribution!
Feel free to take a picture from the site and tape it to your jar as well
Make as many as you want and collect the money once a month (or if your jar looks like these maybe try for once a week!). “Don’t talk about it, be about it.” Good luck!!
