How to Help

Use Facebook or regular email and ask your friends to participate by spreading the word. Help this campaign go viral!

Click here to download our email template in a long and short version.

You don’t need to be social media-savvy to help. Request a “Swag Bag” full of goodies like buttons, stickers and bracelets to give out to friends and family. Email me at ekristoff@liferaftgroup.org to request a bag.

We are asking for a $20 donation to offset the cost of the bags, but it is entirely optional. Just go to our donate page and put RARE 13 in the Honor field.

Choose a fun, interactive way of supporting us by snapping pictures and videos of you and your friends supporting the cause. Some examples are taking a picture holding an “I support the 13” sign, trying to cram 13 people in a VW bug and even trying to eat a juicy, rare, steak. You can find other ideas in our Rare 13 Fact Sheet. On August 13, you will be able to upload these images and videos directly to the Rare 13 website, but until then, you can email them to ekristoff@liferaftgroup.org.

You can also ask for support from local businesses and ask them to sponsor and/or partner with the Rare 13 campaign. Besides helping a great cause, more interest and activity will be directed towards their businesses by becoming part of this national campaign and having the company’s name, website, or logo/tagline in a prominent area of the Rare 13 website. Businesses can also support us with a pin up campaign aimed at their customers. You can download our Sponsor Letter here and our Pin Up Sheet here.
