Make it personal
Give your side of the story - tell
people what you're doing and what it means to you to meet your
Explain what the money raised will do
for your chosen charity.
Ask Friends and Family
Think about sending your page to
friends and family first, to get their support. Once people see the
donations coming in, they will be more likely to donate and support
you in your fundraising efforts.
Share your page
Get your page out there! Use social
media to promote your page, ask people to 'share' it on Facebook or
retweet you on Twitter. Put a link to your Sponsor me page at the
bottom of all your emails & ask your company if you can put it
on work emails, if appropriate.
Say thank you!
Don't forget to thank your donors.
Sponsor me enables you to automate a thank you direct from your
page, but when your event is over you could also send a personal
thank you. This lets people know exactly what their support meant
to you and how much you have raised.
Ask for Gift Aid
Don't forget to ask for Gift Aid for
all donations. Not all will be eligible, but it means that for
those that are, your chosen charity will receive even more money
from your fundraising efforts.
