ABOUT NANNY RELIEF FUND WALK-A-THON 2022 - SPONSORED BY ENGINEHIRE CAMPAIGN
DONATE NOW
 
Spring is in the air, and we're lacing up our shoes and getting excited for Nanny Relief Fund's second annual walk-a-thon!
 
From May 7th to May 21st, nannies from all over the United States (and, dare we say it, the world) will be joining us in walking to raise funds and awareness for Nanny Relief Fund so that we can continue our mission - providing tangible support for nannies in need.
 
We'll be collectively trying to walk a thousand miles together in those two weeks, and our fundraising goal for this campaign is $35,000, which would allow us to open our grant up to nannies in need this summer. HUGE thanks to our platinum sponsor EngineHire for jumping on board and donating the first $5,000 to help us kick off this campaign! We're beyond grateful for all of the ways this new company has been showing up to support the nanny industry, and so impressed by the work they're doing.

If you aren't into walking but still want to help, you are welcome to register and help spread the word about the struggles nannies in your community face on a day-to-day basis on social media - and if you love walking but are shy about raising money, we'd still love your company.
 
This year's registration fee is only $15, and we encourage you to walk wherever, whenever, and with whoever!

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
NANNY RELIEF FUND
Nanny Relief Fund's mission is to provide support to the thousands of people working in the United States as nannies in moments of crisis. As nannies, nanny agency owners and people who have spent collective decades growing and nurturing this industry, we were spurred into action at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic when nannies across the country suddenly lost their jobs, their homes, and their stability.

Nannies come from all walks of life, but one key thing we all have in common is choosing a career dedicated to nurturing and educating the youngest generation of humans and supporting families in pursuing their dreams by providing much-needed support to their households.

HOW YOUR PARTICIPATION HELPS
In the first year of existence, we were able to give away over $80,000 to nannies in need. Nannies throughout this pandemic have voiced to us that there are many financial strains and pressures brought on by both life, and the complicated nature of this underrepresented and regulated industry. With your support, we look forward to being a resource for nannies who experience sudden loss of loved ones or family members, devastating medical bills, and financial hardships that may impact their ability to provide for their families.

Nanny Relief Fund continues to operate as a small-but-mighty volunteer board with a shoestring budget so that the bulk of funds raised can be poured back into our community. Thank you so much for your support so far - we can't wait to see what we can do together!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Charity Footprints?

Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.

Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.

What is the campaign registration fee?

Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.

The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.

How can I create my fundraising page?

Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.

How will I track my distance?

You can track your workouts by setting up your devices (Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Watch, Google Fit, Misfit, Strava), or download the Charity Footprints' iOS or Android app and track your workouts toward this campaign.

If you workout indoors (treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike etc.), you can upload your workouts here.

How do I join a team on this campaign?

While registering for the campaign, select the team you'd like to join or create a new team and invite others to #GetFitGiveBack with you. If you want to join a team (or create your team) after registration, login to the campaign site and you would find a link to edit "My Team" in the menu under your profile in the header.

I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?

All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.

Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?

The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.

That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.

Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.

Who can I contact if I need help?

You can contact us any time if you need help. We love hearing from our users so please don't hesitate to write to us about issues, suggestions, or to just say hi. You can also contact the non-profit administrator directly if you would like.

How do I change or switch my team?

If you want to join a team (or create your team) after registration, login to the campaign site and you would find a link to edit "My Team" in the menu under your profile in the header.
