How to Spread the Mindful Ripple – Fundraising Tips

This year, funds raised by our Mindful in May community will go towards Charity Water’s clean water projects in Uganda. It only takes $35 to transform someone’s life through clean water.

So what’s the best way to spread the mindful ripple and get your family and friends to sponsor you to be mindful in May?

The most important thing you can do is let your friends and family know that you’re taking the challenge. Follow these steps to help spread the word.
