Year in and year out, Bread members win important victories that change laws and structures that allow poverty to persist. Last year, your voice helped keep 1.2 million kids out of poverty in the United States. With your voice and effort, 2011 holds great possibilities.

Building on the tremendous momentum built by Bread members in our 2009 effort, our 2011 Offering of Letters campaign aims to reform foreign aid by making it more effective and efficient at reducing hunger and poverty.

This coming Monday, we’ll be leading interactive webinars to provide an overview of how you can participate in this year’s campaign and create lasting change. The webinar is free, so register now!

For your convenience, we’re offering two times for this webinar — noon and 6 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) — so you get to choose which one works best for you. Each will last an hour.

During the webinar, we’ll provide an overview of the issues at stake, strategies you can use to engage your church or community in letter-writing, helpful hints on how to write effective letters, additional ways you can help build the movement to end hunger, and plenty of time for Q&A.

You can learn more about our campaign at www.bread.org/ol or by contacting us directly anytime.

We’re hoping to be doing more webinars in the future, and we welcome your feedback on topics you’d like us to cover — just email back with your suggestions. We’ve also included some frequently asked questions about webinars below. 

Thanks so much, and we hope to “see” you on Monday.

Peace and Blessings,
Robin and Matt

What is a webinar?
A webinar is a conference call combined with an online PowerPoint presentation. Once you register, we’ll email you instructions on how to dial into a toll-free number with your phone, and how to log in online. It’s easy, fun, and we promise that after you’re done, you’ll be equipped to teach your faith community about how to urge our nation’s decision makers to reform foreign aid to make it more effective and efficient at reducing hunger and poverty.

What do I need to participate?
You need a phone and an Internet connection. If you have a high-speed Internet connection (for example, if you can be on the phone and on the Internet at the same time), you will dial into a toll-free conference call and login to the Web portion at the same time. We will send you simple and detailed instructions on how to do this immediately after you register.

What if I have dial-up and can’t use my phone and Internet at the same time?
Not a problem. As long as you have a phone, you can hear the audio presentation. When you register, there will be an option to receive the PowerPoint presentation via email. We will create a PDF file of the slides that you can open up and print out or follow along on your computer — you don’t even need PowerPoint to make it work. If you choose this option, look for an email Monday morning. 

What’s the cost to participate in the webinar?
This webinar is free, but you must register in advance so we know how many lines to reserve.
