We’re pleased as punch to release this new Nutshell for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. We hope it inspires people to get creative and have a good time fundraising to support the incredible care at LPCH.


The script:

Meet Jill. She’s hitting the pavement for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.

Her nephew, Alex, is a patient at our hospital.

The money she raises will support our hospital’s nationally ranked care and ensure that no child is turned away due to family finances.

With her big 5K run coming up, Jill sets an initial goal of five hundred dollars. Let’s see how she gets there:

On Monday, she donates fifty dollars to her own fundraising page. Leading by example is the perfect way to kick things off.

The next day, she calls three family members and asks them to support her with fifty dollars. They’re in!

On Wednesday, she invites five friends to a fundraising movie night at her place. Folks have a great time and she raises a hundred bucks.

Jill brings a dozen cupcakes to work on Thursday. The result: happy, frosting-covered faces and another fifty bucks. She also uses her company’s matching gift to double their donations.

On Friday, Jill asks her friends on social media to donate ten dollars. In no time, she’s reached and surpassed her five hundred dollar goal!

Over the weekend, Jill thanks all of her supporters for helping our hospital care for more kids like her nephew, Alex, and their families.
