So you've set yourself a Fundraising Challenge, and you're excited to raise money for charity! Want to raise even more? Of course you do. We've got some tip-top tips to top-up your tip jar!
Be the Share-est of them all
Share it far, share it wide, share it from side to side! You don't have to sign up with GivePenny to make a donation, so it only takes a few seconds for your friends and family to show some support. Facebook your Challenge page to your mum, WhatsApp it to your mates, Tweet it to your followers!
You can share straight from your Challenge page at any time - hit the handy Tweet, Email, Facebook etc. buttons and make use of the pop-up window. You don't even need to leave your page!
- Penny Tip: One of the best places to share your page is WhatsApp groups. Your posts on Twitter and Facebook can easily get lost in all the noise and Minion memes, or get bumped to the bottom of your friends' feeds thanks to all the weird algorithms. WhatsApp gets your post right up in their screens!
Give yourself a hand
Our super scientific research tells us that if you get at least one donation at the beginning of your challenge, you're more likely to go on and raise more.
You know that feeling you get when you’re standing on a doorstep and wondering if anyone’s home? That’s kind of how it feels to land on an empty fundraising page.
So sponsor yourself a quid or two to get the ball rolling!
Get your buddies on board
Any Fundraising Challenge can be magically converted into a Team Fundraising Challenge! Team Fundraising allows you to add your friends to your page, and they can connect their apps to help you count your progress and raise funds as a group. It's great if you find you're struggling to meet your targets by yourself, or you just want to add some more fun to your challenge!
Now go get yourself on the Fundraiser wall of fame!
