TOP FUNDRAISING TIPS
1- Show You're Committed – Donate to Yourself
Nothing shows commitment to the cause and challenge like donating to yourself. It's also a great way to lead by example – if you're asking friends and family to make a donation, it makes sense to donate to yourself as well! Plus, people who donate to themselves raise twice as much as people who don't.
2- Spread the Word
Let friends, family and colleagues know you've signed up to the challenge. Tell them in person, send an email, send an SMS, put it on Facebook or Instagram, Tweet it, Snapchat it; whatever works for you (maybe all of them)! Don't forget to let them know how they can support you and make a donation. Share your profile page URL, or ask them to search your name on the website.
3- It's OK to ask more than once
We all need reminding every now and again. You're doing something great for yourself, and for others, so don't hesitate to follow up with people, and remind them to make a donation. Even if you've asked before, people get busy or simply forget.
An easy way to remind people is by posting updates throughout the month. Don't forget to explain why you're taking part and why Dry Feb is important to you. Let friends and family know that their donation will not only motivate you to stay dry, but it's going to a great cause: helping people affected by cancer.
