Join us and Family Promise of Riverside on June 26 to raise awareness for families without a home. Post a picture of you sleeping without a bed with #NightWithoutABed and/or make a donation so others don’t have to sleep without a bed.  Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit.

5) Invite people on your friends' list and engage with them! This is key.  Invite, invite, invite!  Share often on your timeline: remember that not everyone will see something when you post just once. While some people may be hesitant to invite people on their friends' list, remember you're giving them an opportunity to participate in something big. 

6) Thank people as they donate and watch numbers go up!  Seriously, these people are donating  to Family Promise of Riverside because of YOU - because they love you, they appreciate you, they think you're worth investing in!
