Last Minute March for Babies Season Ideas

Posted by Volunteers

Today’s special volunteer guest post comes from a top youth volunteer, our National Youth Council Chair Taylor!

As we near the home-stretch of March for Babies, there is still time to get in more donations and there are a number of resources out there to help you continue to fundraise up until the day of the March and even after!

Resource # 1: E-mail potential sponsors via your March for Babies personal fundraising link. When you are logged into your account at, it provides you a sample letter that gives all the official information about March of Dimes but it also gives you the opportunity to customize and personalize the letter to share why you are walking, your team/individual goals, and how long you have been involved!

Check out your individual and team online fundraising pages for even more resources!

These resources and more are available at!

Resource # 2: For extra fundraising visibility, put a fundraising badge on your e-mail signature. Everyone you e-mail can track your progress. This gives your page extra exposure with every e-mail you send! Those who have already e-mailed may even be inclined to donate again to help you reach your goal.

Resource # 3: Already sent a fundraising e-mail out but have not received a donation from certain friends or family? Consider mixing it up and sending an animated e-card! These are a fun and innovative way to engage your audience! Consider sending in the middle of the week to brighten someone’s day!

These resources and many more are available right at your fingertips from your March for Babies fundraising page and at

Now we want to hear from you!
