Welcome to Heartland RADAC...

Heartland RADAC provides an array of services to individuals confronting alcohol and drug issues. We can provide information and assistance to individuals seeking information either for themselves, a loved one, co-worker or client.

Similar to individuals with other types of illness, those with substance use disorders may choose to make changes in order to improve their life. Sometimes this decision can be made on their own behalf, other times through community support, formalized treatment or as part of a requirement of some other system such as the courts or social services.

Heartland RADAC’s services are designed to assist individuals in addressing substance use disorders so that their recovery can begin.

How to Throw a Fundraiser Birthday Party

If you’re one of those people who dislikes their own birthday because it’s too much attention, then a fundraiser birthday party is for you. Basically, you use your birthday as an excuse to raise awareness and money for a cause you are passionate about. You could limit the invite list to your friend and family, or you could open it up to co-workers, community volunteers and even more. Here are your three tips to throwing yourself a fundraiser birthday party:

Digitally fundraise—For those family members and friends who feel uncomfortable sending money in the mail, set up an account on a fundraising website for people to donate online. You could set it up through Razoo, Punchbowl or even create a landing page on the nonprofit’s website that is solely focused on your fundraiser birthday party.

Showcase nonprofit—The most important part of your fundraiser birthday party is educating your guests on the particular cause. Take it a step further and host your birthday party at the nonprofit’s offices, and, of course, invite all the nonprofit employees and volunteers to your party.

Serve themed-food—Think about the cause that you’re fundraising for. How can you lend the cause to a birthday party theme? Maybe you’re fundraising for animal rights, so you have everything animal-themed and serve animal crackers. Think along those lines to make it more fun.
