We are less than one month from the Toloha Water Walk! We are getting the word out about  it – we have a Facebook Event (please get on and check it out here), we have yard signs and flyers posted around town, we have magnets for our cars, we’ve been to churches and schools and today we put up 4 large banners at high traffic areas in Kinston. It’s happening! Right now, we are halfway to our goal of 100 walkers and we have raised $6,052!!! Wow! If you haven’t registered for the Toloha Water Walk yet, please take five minutes and register right now! Go to: Click “Participate” and then “Register as a Fundraiser.” There are fundraising rewards like the official Toloha Water Walk t-shirt, a Toloha bucket to carry your water at the walk! You must have at least $170 raised by MARCH 10th to receive your t-shirt! There are several Fundraising tools linked on the Registration page, and I thought I’d link them below too. I recently added flyers for kids to color and hand out to their friends, neighbors and teachers. 2014 Toloha Water Walk Corporate Sponsorship Packet Suport Letter or Email Draft Fundraising Ideas Mini Flyers Kid’s Flyer to color Simple 8.5×11 Poster Large 11×17 Poster Kids Coloring Flyer Here is another idea! My daughter wanted to make a little video that we could share with friends and family to help our family meet our fundraising goal of $1,700. I did it with my iPhone – pretty simple, but also effective. We started by emailing to family and asked them to pass it on to their friends. We will also post it on Facebook and our Toloha Water Walk Fundraising website. It took us a couple takes, but she was so excited when she finally said it the way she wanted (as you will see on the video). Check it out below! Do you have any fundraising ideas? Please share them in the comments below, and take photos of you, your family or team in action and then #TolohaWaterWalk2014 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! We can’t wait to see what everyone is up...

2nd Annual Toloha Water Walk Register now to join us on March 22 in Kinston! We are thrilled to invite you to participate in our 2nd Annual Toloha Water Walk.  This experience will be one that we hope you never forget.  Our goal is that it will be a day that brings change to the lives of at least 10,000 people in and around Toloha and to every participant at the Water Walk. “We walk so they don’t have to!” What is a Water Walk? It is a walk to collect water.  The people of Toloha, Tanzania (and millions of others around the world) do not have the luxury of turning on a tap and water gushing forth.  Saturday, March 22 (World Water Day!) will be a day that we can get a glimpse at what the women and children of Toloha experience on a daily basis – a water walk. But it is MORE than that!  We don’t want to just know what it is like, we want to CHANGE the lives of the people in Toloha.  By participating in the water walk you will have an opportunity to raise funds to help install a gravity fed water system to bring water to the people in the village. Everyone who registers, will have their own fundraising campaign page to make raising support simple and easy! Do you want to know more: Click here to visit the Water Walk Page right here on our new website! Click the link below to register Now:

Water Walk Rep Meeting

Posted by on Feb 4, 2014 in Clean Water, Fundraising, Get involved, Written by Katie | 0 comments

Hey Y’all, We are SO excited about our next big fundraising and awareness event, the 2014 Water Walk coming up on March 22nd, 2014!  We had so much fun doing it at Erasing the Lines last year we decided to do it again!  But this time, we are making it a community wide event as well as a fundraiser. Over the past few months God has continued to move things along and we in the process of ordering the first segment of pipe!  In faith, we have decided to begin the project with only $40,000 in the bank of the total $170,000 needed. That’s where you, our blog readers, come in!  We are desperately asking for your HELP!  We are asking you all to take the lead and be liaisons/team leaders for your respective circles of influence.  And the great news is, it is EASY!  We know that if you all are excited about the Water Walk others around you will be excited too!  All you need to do is get the information from us and tell other people.  So don’t be scared!  The concept is really simple — individuals sign up (for free), get their own website, and then raise support ($17 per person for clean water for life) and see how many people’s lives they can literally change forever! Then they show up on March 22nd and experience what our friends in Toloha experience daily, a walk to gather water. We want to invite you (and anyone else you’d like to bring/send) to: The Water Walk Liaison Meeting Sunday February 9th at 2:30pm Grace Fellowship Church (327 Academy Heights Road, Kinston, NC) At this meeting we will walk you through the process of registering, give you some information specific to team leaders and answer any questions you have.  By showing up you are not committing to participate rather you are just getting more information.  If you are unable to make the meeting, but would like the information, please contact us and we will get in touch with you separately. We are grateful for each of you and your willingness to step out and make a difference.  I can’t wait to see what God...
