Stress Relief Fun(d) ~ a fun•drive!
Spread the joy, Make a difference
OmBase continues to grow with new students joining us weekly, and we’re excited and looking forward to growing our teaching family this fall, as well as adding to our class offerings and new curriculum as we move into our second year… so things are really going well.
However, as we approach our first year anniversary, we are faced with a challenge, and an opportunity to embrace this challenge in a creative way, which can help our growing community to get to know one another better, while helping out OmBase at the same time.
Periodically we have to pay down our note, and even as our day to day and monthly operating expenses are being met, due to the market and other circumstances, our working capital reserve has suddenly been reduced- substantially- by the bank., and we need your help and so insure we can meet the need, and stay afloat! So we’ve come up with this stress relief fun(d) ~ a fun•drive to meet the need, with your help.
Please consider becoming a part of the base in OmBase – one of the pillars in our growing community of support. – Your contribution will help to insure the continuation of that which you are valuing, and extend this gift to others.
Your contribution makes a difference. You make a difference to OmBase and help to make it “om” for all of us. Thank you.
So, what can you do?
Besides continuing to come to classes, and helping to spread the word about OmBase – which we greatly appreciate…here’s how you can help:
1. You can donate something to the drawing.
You might consider donating a gift certificate for your business (if you are a body worker, healer, or therapist, you might consider donating a session, or three sessions for 50% off. Be creative!)
Can you offer a service?
Hairdressers, accountants, petsitters, photographers, teachers, therapists, landscape designers, architects, artists, translators…You name it, it’s welcome!
We are hoping for donations valued between $80 and $120, as each ticket is worth $100. We are also hoping to receive a few exceptional donations in the $200-$500 range. Anything above $500 will be in the Grand Prize category along with a year of om (12 months of yoga), valued at $1188.
The number of tickets sold, will not exceed the number of gift/prizes donated, (our goal is to reach our target of 200 gifts).
We also want to help to promote you, and what you do, and by donating you will be listed on our website, on our list of “prizes” by category and in exchange for your generous donation, you’ll get more exposure, greatly help out OmBase, and get a new client in the person who draws your gift.
• How to donate:
– fill out this brief form (we need this information as soon as possible, no later than 10/11/09) and with it, please include a gift certificate or your business card, or both. We’ll add your name and gift to the growing list, (a link to your website will be included)
The growing list of gifts is here.
As a thank-you for your donation you are invited to attend a drop-in class of your choice, for FREE, anytime between the day you make your donation, until the day of the drawing.
2. You can buy a ticket…help OmBase & win a prize!
The number of tickets sold will match the number of gifts donated- the total number not to exceed 200 sold. Odds for winning a prize are 100% while the odds for a specific prize will depend on the total number of tickets sold, but will be no greater then 1 in 200 (good odds )
• How to buy a ticket: (4 ways you can do that!)
1. Come into the studio and pay with cash, credit card or check
2. Call us at OmBase with your credit card
3. Send a check to OmBase
4. Use our online store
Cash or check is preferred - as it costs us nothing – Credit card at the studio is preferred over online purchases, but please use what is most convenient for you.
The rules of the drawing – how it works
The drawing will be held during our First Year Anniversary Celebration on Sunday 10/18/09. Potluck celebration between 12-4 pm. A detailed schedule will be posted later in October.
There will be two bowls. The first bowl will hold numbered cards – one for each ticket sold. The second bowl will hold a card for each prize. One at a time, a numbered card will be picked at random from the first bowl, and the person on the master list that corresponds to that number will randomly pick a card from the second bowl, to reveal what they’ve won! (Those not present will have a card picked for them).
