These days, with globalization, families are often spread across the country and even the world. This often makes it difficult for families to see one another in person, whether it’s once a year for a special birthday or a holiday gathering. While social media and innovations such as Facebook, email and FaceTime have made keeping in touch less of an obstacle, nothing beats a family gathering in the same place.
Trying to reconnect with distant relatives and plan a family gathering can both be daunting and expensive. Planning a family reunion takes a lot of work. Who should be invited? Where should the event take place? Obviously, every family is unique in it’s own way. Sometimes a family reunion can involve hundreds of people from the same clan. Other times, it means getting to see just a few aunts, uncles and cousins that you haven’t seen in a long time. But for some members of the family, particular financial situations can make traveling and getting together difficult.
The most popular time of year to hold a reunion is in the summer. Starting an online fundraiser now is a great way to raise money for relatives that live far away. Give them plenty of time to engage the power of the crowd and fund raise in order to offset any travel expenses that might prevent them from attending.
Start a Move Your Mountain fundraiser so every member of your family, both near and far, old and young, have an opportunity to come together to share about family traditions, make unforgettable memories and lifelong bonds.
