What is "Charity Popcorn?"
Each registered CFC Charity will have the opportunity to share their organization's mission in 30 seconds or less. (It goes fast, like popcorn!) After 30 seconds, a "gong" will sound and your microphone will be cut off, so practice keeping it under 30 seconds! We encourage you to wear your charity's uniform (if you have one), bring props, thank federal employees for what their gifts via CFC mean to your organization, and otherwise make it fun and memorable! Example:
"Hi, I'm Jane Doe from Rocky Mountain Hunger Fighters. Over the past 10 years, federal employees have donated X thousand dollars to help us make sure that no child in Utah goes to bed hungry, ever. Thank you so much! See this balloon? (Holds up inflated balloon.) It's about the size of a human stomach. When it's full, like this balloon is full of air, it keeps the body and mind nourished. (Lets air escape.) But when it's empty, it doesn't do much good. You've helped us keep it full for years, and we know you will again. We are CFC #12345, thank you!"
