Thrivent Action Team 101

Did you know that if you are a member of Thrivent Financial, you may be eligible to lead or sponsor an Action Team?

It starts with an idea powered by your passion. Bring a team together—family, friends, community members— to make an immediate impact and live generously! It could be as simple as you and a friend or two (even your kids!), or as complex as you’d like it to be.

You can choose to use Action Teams to benefit Jake’s Diapers in an intriguing array of opportunities, or you can use them for another amazing cause close to your heart. Either way is fine with us, we just want you to be aware of this amazing opportunity to empower positive change!

Thrivent provides resources to help plan your event, including a Community Impact Card with $250 of seed money.

Need ideas and inspiration? Here is our array of opportunities!

  • Diaper Packing Parties: A fun project of packing cloth diapers for our Diaper Drops! Purchase supplies that go in our cloth diaper kits. We are always in need of Action Teams to sponsor Packing Parties, and funds are used to purchase needed items to go in the kits (usually diaper covers, as we tend to have prefolds in stock!).
    • Real Hope for Haiti: Sponsor a Packing Party for our special needs friends, who will be in diapers for a long time
    • Real Hope for Haiti: Prep & Pack the Tiny Blue Diapers!
    • Sarah’s Covenant Homes: Pack cloth diaper kits for our special needs friends
  • Fundraisers (Have you heard about our Power of Change Fundraiser? It’s easy AND amazing!!!). Purchase M&M tubes and give them away! Ask for them to be returned full of quarters, and each tube can provide a cloth diaper!
  • Sewing Circles: Sponsor a Sewing Circle, where a group of friends gather and repair cloth diapers. Purchase thread, elastic, seam rippers, etc.
  • Kids Corner: Did you know we have a Kids Corner at our office? We often have little helpers, and an Action Team could help supply the Kids Corner with treats and toys to keep little helpers busy!
  • Volunteer Days Action Team: Did you know every Wednesday from 9 to 1 we have Drop in Volunteer Days? You could sponsor the project of the week, e-mail us for our most recent project and needs!

You can lead a team yourself, or you can sponsor an event where we’ve done all the legwork.

A simple description works fine! For our Packing Party Example, the project description would be to have a packing party to assemble kits of cloth diapers for use by Real Hope for Haiti.

Explain how you will use the seed money. For our Packing Party example, seed money is used for cloth diaper covers, which is one piece of the kits that we are always running low on. (We have the other pieces in stock, and the action team is to assemble the kits).
