HOW TO BUILD YOUR PAGE AND GAIN SUPPORT:
Have fun and get creative! Personal photos and stories generate interest.  It is strongly recommended that all donations be made prior to the walk and online. It ensures efficiency and prompt thank- you's. Each team or individual should make a contribution and then ask others to do the same. To build your list, think of your holiday card list, your book club, former classmates, people from the gym, temple or church, and of course, co-workers, relatives and neighbors. All are great resources; they respect you and may wish to learn more and help.
