|12th - 18th November 2012
With the cold weather creeping on us, we are easily reminded about people who don't have a home and a warm bed to go back to every night. Take part to the EAF Morning Coffee initiative next week to help raise some valuable fund to give people a place they can call home.
Why organise a coffee morning? Well, you will of course be raising some funds for a worthy cause, as well as having the opportunity to bond with your colleagues and test their culinary skills. Coffee mornings are also a great way of networking with your customers as well as raising your profile in the community.
If you would like to hold a coffee morning in your office it couldn't be simpler.
Step 1 - Pick a day during the coffee week to host your coffee morning
Step 2 - Go to the EAF website to register your office (click here)
Step 3 - We will provide you with the materials to promote the event, templates for posters, invitations and window cards
Step 4 - You invite your clients, previous, existing and potential to join in to raise money for this great cause. You can also invite local businesses and of course anyone passing by your office on that morning!
Step 5 - You ask your guests for donations of 50p or &1 for each cup of coffee you supply (or more if you also offer some cakes)
Step 6 - You get to network with customers, past, present and future and raise your profile in your local community
Step 7 - Send a cheque made payable to the Estate Agency Foundation for the funds raised
Step 8 - Have fun, it doesn't matter whether you raise &10 or &1,000, all funds will go towards helping eliminate the causes of homelessness
There are lots of ways to raise additional money at your event from raffles to selling homemade cakes, biscuits and snacks. At Head office, each one of us will bake a cake (or buy one for the less adventurous of us) to sell with our coffee. We are also organising a raffle with prizes kindly given by local businesses (hairdresser, restaurant and gym). If you are planning on coming to London soon and fancy a meal for two at our local Italian or a manicure, then why not buy a ticket for &5 only? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7079 1515 to buy your ticket.
Most of all show the industry and the public that you are committed to help combat the causes of homelessness in the UK and help the thousands of people at risk of losing their homes through poverty, mental illness, abuse, dependency issues and many other contributing factors. All funds go directly to help the good causes of the EAF nominated charities - your support can make a real difference.
Help the EAF reach their target of &150,000. They raised &115,000 so far, so every single donations, no matter how little they are, can make a real difference!!
