Add a picture to your page:
Place a picture of you training or being silly. This will really personalise your page and make it a lot more fun!
Update the blog:
There is a space on your online fundraising page to add a blog and you can include details about why you have chosen to support CanTeen. Keeping this blog up to date with your preparation will keep your page interesting and interactive for your donors.
Make a donation yourself:
If you donate to your own challenge, you are letting all your donors know you are passionate about CanTeen and have faith in your fundraising target and challenge. Don’t forget to add a comment with your donation about why you have chosen to support CanTeen.
Email or send a private Facebook message to your friends and family specifically (not a group message) letting them know that you are fundraising for CanTeen and ask if they could sponsor you by donating to your page. In your email, also ask your friends for a specific amount and let them know what that will do in supporting young people living with cancer. Here is a sample email for you to use.
Make your first donations count:
If your first couple of donations are $50+, then the following donors are likely to give around the same amount. Cheeky but all for a good cause!
Get your online fundraising link out there:
Post your fundraising page link on your Facebook and Twitter accounts every couple of weeks with an update on how your training, preparation or fundraising is going. You could also add the link to your fundraising page on your email signature for both personal and professional email accounts.
