What is the Phantom Tea? It is a fun and easy way to involve our membership all across the country in a single fundraising event. The Phantom Tea encourages you to invite your family and friends to a virtual tea party, and then to ask them to donate to a very worthy cause.
How does it work and how can I help? Simply compile a list of friends and family to whom you would like to send an invitation (a sample is enclosed). Tell us how many invitations you will need on the enclosed postcard and return it to us, or call or email us. You may ask for as few or as many as you want. We will fill your order and send them out to you.
Once you receive the invitation packages, simply fill in the affected person’s name on the “in honor of” space provided on the return card and distribute them to your selected family and friends. The invitation has room on the inside for you to add a personal note or a photo, if you wish to personalize it. If you are a busy family and have limited time, simply send your address list to the office and we’ll send the invitations for you! Please know we will not share or add your list to our database.
Email, Facebook or Twitter: With a few clicks, you can participate electronically! Visit the Phantom Tea page on our website. From this link you will be able to send an electronic invitation to your family and friends in your address book and they can reply securely through our website. There are also some wonderful tools to help you host a successful tea party fundraiser.
This fundraiser is so simple because no one has to leave their home or get dressed up for this tea party, unless you want to. Sometime this spring, your family and friends will enjoy a cup of tea, make a toast to find a cure for ichthyosis, and send a donation of any size to FIRST.
Every donor will be thanked by FIRST shortly after their donation is received. Once the campaign is over, the Foundation will provide you with a list of your donors so that you can personally thank them as well. All donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We look forward to your support. Please call if you have any questions or concerns.
Remember, the #1 reason people do not give is because they are not asked.
