u36 Challenge

CBB's U36 Challenge is a contest to see who can rally the largest team of people 35 years old or younger to #InspireJasper by making a donation on Tuesday, December 1.  

NOTE: Team Leaders don't have to be 35 or younger; just reach out to younger friends, neighbors, co-workers, family members, etc.

How do I become a Team Leader?

  1. Come up with a creative (or just easy to remember) team name, e.g. Team High Five; The Haberdashers; Jane’s Team and e-mail your team name to Jocelyn@childrensbookbank.org.
  2. Mark #GivingTuesday--December 1--on your calendar.
  3. Follow CBB on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and keep an eye out for future e-mails from CBB.  Then share these with your network--friends, family, classmates, co-workers, anyone you want on your team. 
  4. On December 1, make a donation through giveguide.org/#childrensbookbank and remind your team to do the same.  Be sure to mark your 35 and under status and include your team name in the "in honor of" field.

Why Tuesday, December 1? 

Because #OregoniansGive on #GivingTuesday—a global day dedicated to giving back.  

Why people 35 and younger?

The Children's Book Bank has been included in Give!Guide again this year and donations from people 35 or younger made through www.giveguide.org help CBB win a $1,000 prize—that’s books for two classrooms of preschoolers!  Others are welcome to join your team, but we'll only count members 35 and younger.

What do I get?

All Team Leaders get the satisfaction of helping give books to kids in need and an excuse to share your passion and enthusiasm for CBB with your friends and family.  The winner gets a pizza party for U and 36 of your friends at Straight From New York Pizza.  Last year’s winner rallied 14 donors!
