Do lunch. 

Host a luncheon or dinner, invite your friends, screen the RAMP video, and talk RAMP up! Motive folks to do contribute to RAMP’s programs in Martin County.

Profits for empowerment.

Get your business to host a five percent day where you pledge to put five percent of profits towards building a healthier, more vibrant community in Martin County. 

Go retro for RAMP. 

Host a car wash, coin drive, bake or tag sale. Turn every car you wash, cookie you bake, or piggy bank you raid into a direct impact in someone’s life.

Get your workout on. 

You sweat, kids get healthy. Host a road race, bike race, triathlon, walk-a-thon, or obstacle course and go the extra mile for food and economic security!

Party for a purpose.

Turn birthdays, weddings, graduations, and all sorts of life celebrations into meaningful change in Appalachia! Check out http://wishes.causes.com/ to raise funds via Facebook.

Come together for a community. 

Start a RAMP Club at your school, church, or workplace. Already part of a group? Great! Engage your fellow girl scouts, boy scouts, ballet class, or soccer team! Build awareness of poverty in the U.S. and raise funds for RAMP.

A note on in-kind donations: Due to limited resources RAMP is unable to transport most in-kind donations (clothes, books, etc.) The most effective way for individuals to make a difference is by hosting one the events above to raise awareness of or funds for alleviating poverty in rural Appalachia.
