“For me, Grounds for Health is an opportunity, something positive. It is a privilege to have such wonderful professionals come here to train us. Above all, it has been a benefit for the women of the area.” – From: Most Significant Change – Importance of Training

Why help promote the auction?

As a donor, when you help promote the Grounds for Health Coffee Auction, you not only increase the likelihood of the auction’s success, but you also make the entire process easier for yourself. For example, if existing customers purchase your coffee, they can add their winnings to a current order to lower shipping costs. You already have a relationship with them and by promoting the auction you become an advocate for the work of Grounds for Health. In our view, that’s a win-win situation!

We’ve put together these resources you can use in your social media and marketing campaigns. If you have any questions or special requests, please contact Justin: justin@groundsforhealth.org.
