I'm thrilled to be hosting the Nonprofit Blog Carnival for February!

How do you take care of yourself as a fundraising? | Nonprofit Blog CarnivalSince Valentines' Day is this month, the Carnival topic is: As a fundraiser, how do you take care of yourself?

I believe fundraising is the best profession in the world! But it can be incredibly stressful, grueling, and thankless.

We often focus on letting donors know we love them, but how do you show yourself the love?

Nonprofit blog readers

If you're a blog reader, sit tight. I'll post a round up of the best of the blogs right here on FundraisingCoach.com at the end of February.

Nonprofit bloggers

If you're a blogger, here's how to be part of the carnival (even if only as a clown!)

  • Write a post if ideas of how you take care of yourself. How do you as a fundraiser reenergize? Give yourself a pat on the back? Recover from the "no"? Feed your creativity? Stay inspired?

    There isn't a right or wrong type of post. Yours may be funny, serious, or even emotional.

  • Email your permalink to nonprofitcarnival@gmail.com or fill out this handy form by Monday 2/27.
  • I'll sift through all the submissions and, with the help of my team, will choose the ones that best fit the topic. Posts well written and relatively recent (within the last couple months) are best.
  • Check back here on February 2/29 to see if your post made it. And to get great ideas on how to keep yourself motivated for the long haul!

Let the carnival begin!

I look forward to your creativity!!

To get an idea of how the posts will be collected at the end of the month, check out January's Nonprofit Blog Carnival. These are posts relating to "dreams" (since we observed MLK Day here in the States!).
