Help PALS reach 1,000 Likes!
The PALS Facebook page has been growing steadily since we created it years ago. We currently have a whopping 900+ Likes, but as always at PALS, we’re setting our sights higher: Let’s get 1,000 Likes!
Our Facebook page is one of our key drivers of awareness, recruitment, and fundraising. The more people like the page, the more people learn about PALS and what we’re up to.
To reach 1,000 Likes, we need your help. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Like our page yourself, if you haven’t already
- Update your status to tell people about the page
- Jump up and down on your rooftop holding a PALS sign
If we reach 1,000 Likes by June, our fearless executive director has agreed to record herself singing a song of your choosing (there will be a vote).

This Sunday: PALS Fit inaugural event!
This Sunday at 10:30 AM we’re kicking off the first-ever PALS Fit (Friends In Training) event, and we want you to join us! The event is a 3K run/walk, and will be held near the University of Maryland, College Park campus. PALS Fit is a fitness-oriented program, and a great way to reconnect with PALS friends and maybe make a new training buddy!
It’s not too late to sign up for Sunday’s event. See you there!
Fundraising results are in
The 2012-13 fundraising campaign has come to an end, and we’ve tallied the results. In the last 4 months we raised a whopping $85,684 from 432 donors via 88 fundraising pages! That’s 85K that will help us launch three new programs this summer (in addition to the two we’re already running), continuing our effort to reach communities all around the country.
There’s no way for us to express how grateful we are to everyone who chipped in on this effort, and who helped us outdo last year’s record-setting campaign by 18%. So let us just say:
