PERSONAL & GROUP CAMPAIGNS
By inviting others to join you in supporting Rising Star through a campaign, you encourage them to take action to further support our mission.
Below, we have provided ideas to help you as you plan your campaign. There are ideas for scout troops, church groups, women’s clubs, families, and companies.
As you work to raise money, awareness, or needed supplies, it will help you develop a deeper commitment and connection to the people you are serving in the leprosy colonies.
Plan and host your own event
We invite you to host your own event benefitting Rising Star. The following is a list of ideas you can use to gather an audience.
- Blog- If you have a blog, invite your blog readers to be a part of your presentation or event.
- Facebook- Post your event on your Facebook profile. Create an event page and invite your contacts. Encourage your friends to get involved.
- Email- Send an invite to those on your email list to attend.
- Thank you letters- Remember to send a little thank you to those who have supported you in your endeavors. Include an invitation to your presentation.
Depending on the date and location, we may be able to provide a guest speaker, materials and flyers, and local volunteer support needed in organizing your event. This work could not continue without you. To schedule your event, contact Shalay Branch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-820-0244.

Access to proper hygiene products is very difficult when living in extreme poverty within a leprosy colony. Our medical staff teach patients about good hygiene and provide these kits on a regular basis. Having these products does more than just prevent infection and the spread of bacteria. These kits help to promote dignity, self-worth, and confidence to continue the hard work towards self-reliance.
- Shaving cream or gel
All items should be the smaller travel or sample size kind. Remove the individual packaging and pack all items in a Ziploc bag.
Wound Care Kits
- The gauze pieces should be folded up to be 5 x 5 cm
- The absorbent cotton pads are 10 x 10 cm
- The bandage roll is 10 cm width and 5 meters length
- Sample size tube of antiseptic ointment (Neosporin / Bactraban)
- Sample size tube of antiseptic lotion (Eucerine / Aquaphor)
- Foot rasp (see this example)
Enclose all contents in a Ziploc bag. The bandages and scissors are a must. If you can get the other items online in bulk or from doctors’ offices, that would be tremendous, but don’t let that stop you. We will take whatever you can do.

Hosting a book drive is an easy way for people to donate to Rising Star. Everyone understands the importance and power of a good book. Ask your friends and neighbors to donate some favorites from their library or to give a new book. Luckily, many childrens books are very inexpensive.
One young man did a virtual book drive and collected pledge donations. He created a shareable web page with a thumbnail of each book in need, allowing participants to choose which book they would like to give. They were also provided a bookplate (sticker) on which they could include their name and a small message to be placed inside the book that was pledged to be purchased. He also collected donations with which he used to travel to India to personally deliver the books to finish out his project.
