The National Celebration of Pro Bono is October 23-29 this year. That means that if you have not already planned your Celebration, you still have 4 weeks to do it! But what, and how?!
Our website, http://www.celebrateprobono.org, can help you out. We have an area dedicated to Event Ideas, sorted by type of event, where you can find inspiration and click on a category to get descriptions of specific events. Under the Resources tab, you can find information on using social media to promote your events, media resources, sample proclamations and more.
This year, we encourage you to plan events around the provision of legal services to veterans during the Celebration week through Veterans Day, November 11. Check out our specific page on veterans resources. We also encourage groups to organize veterans legal service activities on or around Memorial Day in May 2017. Organizations submitting and fulfilling a pledge to serve veterans on these two occasions will receive recognition from ABA President Linda Klein.
Before you leave celebrateprobono.org, don’t forget to go shopping at the Celebration store for gifts and mementos to hand out to your volunteers.
If you’re still not sure what you’d like to plan, or how to plan it, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to help you out.
