Top Tips for Fundraising with friends

Raising money for the cause you care about can be a lot of fun, but as the saying goes “two heads are better than one” so why not get your friends involved and double the good times!  Do you have any tips to add? Contact us on Facebook or Twitter!

fundraisingwithfriends

Here are some of our top tips to get started:

  • Contact a local bar and see if they are willing to host a charity fundraiser.  Since you’re fundraising with your friends, you will have double the contacts to invite. Use each other’s networks to bring together everyone you know.  Sell tickets at the door and use this as a great opportunity to catch up and chat with people on the causes that matter most to you.
  • Host a movie marathon! Get caught up on your favorite movies and TV shows by hosting a screening at your house.  Ask for a donation to watch the movie marathon and in return your friends will be able to binge watch some real classics together.  Don’t forget the popcorn!
  • Cleaning cars in return for donations might not sound like the most fun to be had but with a group of you working together to get the job done the time will fly by! Make sure you prepare your musical playlist before the big day and have plenty of refreshments on hand – it’s hard work being awesome.
  • Everyone has old clothes they are looking to rid themselves of so why not get your group together to donate your unloved items and host a second hand fashion show! You can charge gold coin entry and auction off your fabulous clothes to a willing audience of family and friends whilst you get all the fun of strutting down the cat walk. (It goes without saying that any clothes left over can be donated to your local charity shop).
  • Not everyone is a budding Nigella Lawson but that shouldn’t hold you back. Get everyone to cook their signature dish (be that macaroni cheese or a full blown roast with all the trimmings) and host an evening of fun, food and a cheeky donation – and even a prize for the best (or worst) meal!

Don’t forget to set up your Everyday hero supporter page before the event to ensure your donors have a safe, simple way to donate – click here to get started!

Top Tips for Raising Money as a Team

Who doesn’t enjoy spending time with their friends? No one! Which is why raising money for your favourite cause with them is so much more fun than going it alone!

group

  1. Make some fun team t shirts! (Don’t forget to include your team page link). You can sell them to your friends and family for them to show their support with all money raised going to your Supporter Pages! (and even better, when they wear them they are also promoting your Supporter page to anyone who see’s them!)
  2. Put up posters around your local area that displays your Team Page link.
  3. Email the local press promoting your team page along with a photo of you guys having fun!
  4. Get together as a team and hold a trivia evening or a bbq etc – invite your friends and family, show all of them your passion for your charity and the effort you are willing to put in to reach goal.
  5. Set weekly or monthly goals for each member to spread your money raising message further and to keep the momentum going!
    1. Goals for every team member could include -

i.     Make a donation to your own Supporter Page, this not only shows your commitment to the cause but also moves you off the $0.

ii.     Email your team page link at least 30 of their friends, really use all of your networks!

iii.     Share your team page link on your Facebook wall

iv.     Tweet your team page link

v.     Ask your employer to sponsor you, or see if there is a matched giving scheme.

  1. Visit your friends who are not in the team to get them to donate there and then using their mobile phone! Asking face to face is a sure fire way to get that money raised!
  2. Share photos of all the early morning training runs you have been doing to your supporter page! Let all your donors and potential donors see all the hard work your team are putting in to achieve your goal! (You can even share these updates to Facebook and Twitter as you post them to really spread the word.)
  3. Set aside one day when your whole team are free and offer up your services in return for donations! Wash cars, mow lawns, garage clear outs, anything you can think of that you can do to help others – do it.
  4. Get your supporters rallying you! Make sure all your friends and family are also sharing your supporter page far and wide. Asking them to pop it on their email signature and put up posters around their work or social club.  A small effort from them can have a huge impact on donations.
  5. Don’t forget to have fun, the reason you are raising money is for a great cause, the reason you are doing it with your friends is because you all share the same passion!

Make your training count for the causes you love with MapMyFitness

Whether you are running a marathon, or riding for a good cause, we know there’s so much more that goes into fundraising for charity than just asking for donations.

That’s why we’ve partnered with MapMyFitness to give you the ability to make all your workouts count for the causes you love. In one click you can now connect your MapMyFitness account to Everyday Hero and begin posting your workout information straight to your Supporter Page/s.

You of course have full control over what information is posted to which of your Pages and can change these at any time in your privacy settings.

Once you’ve connected your accounts, every time you log a ‘public’ workout or training run on MapMyFitness, it will be posted to the activity feed on your Page.MMFPost

The post will display a map of your route and information about your workout including distance, duration, speed and calories to show just how much effort you’ve put in! The date of your work out will also be shown as well as the type of activity you did such as ‘rode’ or ‘ran’.

Show everyone just how much you’re actually doing for the charity you love and make the time and energy you put in to training for events like City2Surf count.

Not only will this inspire and motivate others (especially if you’re in a team), but it will also encourage people to give generously to your Page when they see just how dedicated you are!

Top Tips for raising money for the cause you love in the New Year

We all know it can be hard to find the motivation to do anything in the new year apart from recover from the festive period but why not use all that sugary energy to do some good :)

happy new year

1. Start the new year with a health kick! Why not give up alcohol for the month of January and get your friends and family to sponsor you for showing such restraint! Your favourite charity benefits and your liver – win win!

2. Still need a way to make up for holiday period rest? Why not commit to exercising at least 4 times a week and for every session you make you can donate a small amount to the cause you care about, but for every session you miss you donate double that amount – it’s all about incentive :)

3. Did you receive far too many presents this year or just looking to have a clear out? Why not make a trip down to your local charity shop and donate them to help out those less fortunate than yourself.

4. Looking for yet more ways to burn off all that extra energy? Get in touch with some of your local charities and volunteer your time, causes are always grateful for an extra pair of hands this time of year. Do good, feel super :)

5. Sick of sickly treats? Why not rustle up some healthy snacks and bring them into your office and host a ‘be good bake sale’. Your colleagues will thank you for the delicious non excessive food and in return make a donation to your charity. For healthy snack ideas check out these – http://bit.ly/JWVEFT

6. If you are still feeling like you need to do more whilst raising funds for the cause you care about why not offer to do chores for your friends and family? Offering to mow their lawn or take their excess rubbish to the tip in return for donations is a great, simple, feed good way to reach your target :)
