This year, have you best birthday ever

Here’s a fun and easy way to bring hope and opportunity to one of the world’s poorest countries – use your birthday to help raise support for WAVS. You can sign up for this now even if your birthday is a long ways off!

As you know, WAVS doesn’t have a big fundraising staff, just supporters like you – so your help will mean a lot!

If we can get just 20 people to raise $100 each on their birthdays, that will raise $2,000 for WAVS. Let’s make this happen!

Here’s the easy, two-step process for signing up:

1) To become a member of the WAVS Causes group, go here ( and click the button that says “Join Cause”

2) Click here ( to register your birthday. When you get to the page that asks you to select which cause you’re raising money for, click on the “Causes” tab (to the right of the “Projects” and “Nonprofits” tabs) and select “Give Hope to West Africa!”

More details: 

The way it works is simple: you register your birthday with a Facebook app called Causes and then when the big day rolls around, the app will automatically let your friends on Facebook know about your birthday wish: to pitch in $10 to help provide hope and opportunity for people in one of the world’s smallest and poorest countries. It’s very easy to set up. If you’re interested, I’d encourage you to sign up now so that you won’t have to worry about remembering to do it closer to your birthday.

Thanks! And happy early birthday!
