2019 Our Promise Campaign Kickoff

Posted by Teresa On Wednesday, August 28, 2019 0 comments

“Now remember, when it’s three fifteen you want to take a break and donate to Heifer Int’l.” That’s what you’d heard, if you passed by the Heifer International table at the Our Promise Campaign Kickoff at the State Capitol. Heifer’s Our Promise campaign code is 315. Frank, a Sacramento Heifer volunteer, came up with the clever mnemonic to help everyone remember Heifer’s campaign code.  

It’s late August and time to kickoff State of California’s Our Promise campaign! The campaign brings together California state employee donors and non-profit organizations to support communities and causes. From September 1 through October 31, state agencies and departments inform and educate employees on opportunities to donate. Employees can make one-time donations or on a recurring basis through payroll deduction.

For Heifer Sacramento volunteers, this is one of our favorite events that we look forward to every year. We love to talk about Heifer’s approach to eliminate hunger and poverty around the world. Often, visitors to our table are new to Heifer. But we’re always pleasantly surprised to meet someone already familiar with Heifer that stop by to say hello. Sometimes the story is that a grandparent had made a donation on their behalf. Other times a friend is a donor to Heifer and told them about Heifer’s work.

A big thanks to the kickoff organizers for a well-run event and up beat musical accompaniment. Also, a big shout out to all the attendees. We are grateful for your engaging, inquisitive interactions, and positive energy that always leave us energized.
