Volunteer Positions at Aura's House
Kristen, Ana, and Mike who run the site all have demanding full-time jobs that limit them from being able to concentrate on Aura's House as much as they'd like to. On top of it, they realize that there are people out there who can fundraise and promote the site even better than they can. We have the following volunteer jobs available. If you choose to accept a position, you may participate as much or as little as you'd like in the running of the site. If you are interested in any of the following positions, please email Kristen Palana at firstname.lastname@example.org. (*Self starters/go-getters preferred. If you have an idea about what you can do to help the site, please propose it to us. We'll be happy to work with you.)
Anastasia Yecke started out at Aura's House as the Chief Fundraiser for the Honduras House Project. Basically she emailed friends and family about Aura's House, accepted donations for Aura's House from co-workers and acquaintances, and even held a few fundraising events such as a Car Wash and a Wine Tasting in Miami. There's no limit as to what kinds of creative ideas a Fundraiser might come up with. We could definitely use another person or two (or more!) who can let people know that even $1 will make a huge difference in the world.
Promotions and Publicity
A Promotions Person could simply send a few emails or personalized letters to friends and family or they could send write-ups to local newspapers. They could use banners to post to blogs or mention Aura's House in online forums that deal with issues of poverty, India, Zambia, Central America, worthy causes, etc.. One of our repeat donors, Courtenay Honeycut currently posts to Craig's List and other sites for us as well as having created our banners page.
A graphic designer could design posters, flyers, brochures, info cards, postcards, and other promotional materials for Aura's House. Please contact Kristen if you need more high-res. images. Many students from William Paterson University have already contributed to Aura's House with their graphic design and web design talents.
Digital Artists and Web Designers
We can always use new banners to let people know about our site. We also can use designs for our online shop. If you are familiar with Web Design we are open to any and all suggestions. Maybe you are a Flash animator that wants to create an influential animation, web page, or HTML email to help out Aura's House. New Jersey Digital Artist, Nancy Fischer recently created the digital images of a water well building up brick by brick for the current India project.
If you have an idea as to how you can contribute to Aura's House, please drop us a line.
