Seven Day Lead-up

Here’s an easy planning guide plan to help support BSP’s Giving Day. Please note that the following aren’t commandments, just suggestions to make supporting the Bird School Project as easy as possible! This is all about telling a story. Your community wants to know, why are you involved with this organization?
