In a bit of a fundraising pickle? Whether you’ve just started on your fundraising journey or need a boost to get you over the line, we’ve got you covered. Here are some quick and easy ways to level-up your tally.
Like shaving, cutting or colouring your hair, reaching your World’s Greatest Shave fundraising goal is a mission in itself.
There are plenty of fun and creative ways to raise funds for Australians facing blood cancer, and we’ve put together our picks of the bunch. Remember, every donation you receive – big or small – will make a difference.
1. Share your page… everywhere!
Facebook, Instagram, email, online community groups. Share wherever you can. You may feel a little shy at first but remember, you’re doing an incredible thing that’s worth making a fuss about.
2. Remind people what it’s for
People are more likely to donate when they’re reminded what it will go towards. You’re supporting people with a blood cancer diagnosis at every step – giving them the best chance of beating it.
Be your own biggest fan. Donating to yourself is a great way to kick off your fundraising tally and set an example for others to follow. It also gives people an amount to match.
4. Encourage every donation size
Remind people that regardless of the amount, every donation counts and will be put towards supporting Australians with blood cancer. It’s amazing what $5 can do when everyone chips in!
5. Put up a poster
Log in to your account to download your personal donation QR code. Print it off and put it up in a highly visible place, so people can scan and donate on the spot.
6. Sell your unused items
Have a garage sale or sell things online to raise extra funds. For some inspo, check out how Audrey Wood held a garage sale to help her reach an incredible fundraising tally of over $10,000!
7. Lean on your friends
Don’t be afraid to ask your friends for support. Ask if they can spread the word further by sharing your fundraising page with their network.
8. Collect loose change
Ask people at home, work, school and in your social groups to donate any coins they have lying around.
9. Remind people on the day
Inspire last-minute donations by sharing a photo or video of you on your big day!
