Feeling lucky?Posted by Linda
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
It’s mid-March and it’s March for Babies season! Today is a great day to get registered and start asking your family and friends for donations! Need some help? We’ve got 5 easy ways to ask:
#1 Fundraise online
The winning way to fundraise. We know how busy you are. Online fundraising is faster and brings in 3 times more money. Share your personal fundraising link via email and post on social media like Facebook and Twitter!
#2 Make your own donation
There’s a lot of value in setting a great example and showing how much you care.
Post your reason for walking, status updates, pictures, etc., to Facebook and Twitter to create a fabulous fundraising network. Don’t forget to include your personal fundraising link.
#4 One-stop fundraising
From the Dashboard on your personal fundraising page, you can upload photos to personalize badges for your emails, website or blog; or create funny, friendly eCards.
#5 Stay connected
Your Dashboard also lets you: download iPhone® and Android apps so you can conduct your campaign from the palm of your hand; download our Facebook app; or easily spread the word with the social media share buttons.
#6 Double your donations
Asking your donors if their company has a matching gift program is a terrific way to raise twice as much.
#7 Call on colleagues
Talk about the walk face-to-face, leave notes around the office or hang posters in your workspace and on bulletin boards.
#8 Outside the box
Beyond work, reach out to a ready and caring audience: your children’s school, an organization you belong to, a place of worship.
#9 Quick way to $250
Cann’t hurt to give this a try! Make a $25 donation. Ask three friends to match it; two family members for $20; four colleagues for $15; a neighbor for $10; your doctor for $25; and a local merchant for $15. You did it!
#10 Remind and thank
Don’t miss an opportunity to help babies. Send reminders to those who expressed interest but haven’t yet donated. Please thank everyone genuinely and enthusiastically for supporting you and remind them how special they are.
