  • Registration/Donation Website

No Event is Too Small to Make a Difference!

We encourage newcomers to start small. As you gain more experience, opportunities will arise to host larger events and educational programs in your community.

Follow these simple steps:

Step One

Contact  to discuss your ideas or just to find out more. There is no obligation to host an event.

Step Two

Select your event, set your date and begin the planning! We strongly encourage you to get friends and family involved in the process.

Step Three

Relax and enjoy all of your hard work. MIF will provide educational materials and support you in sharing your story with your participants. It will be a great time to meet new people and spread the awareness.

Step Four

Be sure to follow-up and thank your donors and/or sponsors. MIF will show you how to track donations and expenses for appropriate reimbursements. Write down your ideas for next year!
