16 Kansas campuses featured SWIPE events
4,379 participants volunteered their time and energy
597,424 meals were packaged and sent to the famine victims in the Horn of Africa
It was so successful and so much fun, we are doing it again in 2012.
The call is once again going out to all of the institutions of higher education in the state of Kansas to be a part of something truly unique. In 2011, Kansas garnered a lot of attention as a result of SWIPE, and this year, we will demonstrate that it was no fluke. Kansas colleges are on the forefront of a movement to do something practical about world hunger. Something that can be done on every campus. Something that will change lives. Something that will save lives.
The SWIPE 2012 offer from Numana is an overall discount per meal to all schools participating in the program. Numana meals are .30¢ each to prepare and package, but will be discounted to .28¢ per meal to all SWIPE participants. For a 20,000 meal event, that is the equivalent of 1,333 free meals! And it only gets better from there.
We need to hear from you and know that you are interested.
- Numana is working with potential underwriters and will pass along any grants and funding obtained from sponsors directly to the campuses to defray the cost of the meals.
- New this year, Numana SWIPE events will be held in September through November, offering your school greater flexibility on dates and scheduling.
- The Numana fundraising manual will once again be available with a few exciting updates. And we will be here to coach and cheer you on as you staff your committees, raise awareness and interest and plan your very own SWIPE event.
- Want to double your fun and increase the challenge? Consider inviting another Kansas campus in your region to partner with you and share a SWIPE event. By combining efforts you may have even more fundraising power and greater potential for gaining support.
