Starting your own fundraiser can be tricky if you don’t know where to start.
That’s why we’ve put together some inspiration and a bunch great resources to help you get you going.
Start where you’re most comfortable by continuing to do whatever it is you love to do most. This is your chance to tap straight into your own innate talents and make a real difference in the lives of those living with cancer. You could host a gardening lesson, a paint night with friends, or a wine tour. Start a series of guided bike rides, hair tricks, a weekend of bracelet making. Whatever. When you DIY the sky is really the only limit. And if you're an aviation expert, it might be even higher.
The first time we started a fundraiser, we didn’t know either. That’s why we built a custom page maker tool and placed it directly on your dashboard. Once you register, you’ll have all the tools you need to build a fundraising page and tell your DIY story. You can customize your profile pic, set your fundraising goal, add a vibrant background and tell people you’re participating.
We have all the tools you need to raise awareness on social and we’ve even built a bucket full of custom assets that you can share to challenge your friends. Download them all below.
Like we said, there are no fundraising minimums but that doesn’t mean there are no rewards.
Hit a fundraising milestone for your free gift.
