Share your motivation
Supporters love to hear the story and reasons behind why someone is raising money. Maybe you would ordinarily be collecting on the streets, perhaps you usually host a coffee morning or maybe this is your first time to get involved. You might be collecting for someone you’re remembering, or for a family member who received support from the Irish Cancer Society. Whatever the reason, behind every fundraiser, there’s an important story – and every one of your posts is a chance to share yours and inspire others to get involved!
Add a fundraising target
Setting yourself a target not only focuses your mind more on your goal but it will also encourage your family, friends, colleagues and community to support you to help you get there!
Add a picture
Pages with pictures bring in 15% more in donations, so get that camera clicking.
Keep your family, friends, colleagues and community engaged and give them regular updates on social media, email, text and on your page. It’s a great way to thank those that have donated already and who knows, it could encourage them to donate again!
Spread the word
Post your page on your social media profiles. It comes with social media sharing buttons that make it super quick and easy to post your page on Facebook and Twitter. And don't forget about Whatsapp! Send your link by text to your friends and family to make sure they know how they can support cancer patients and their families!
Share your story
You might like to share your favourite memories of someone you’ve lost. Or perhaps you could make a video showing why you’re raising funds. Whether you post an Instagram story or say a few words in your Facebook newsfeed, it can all help encourage more people to visit your page.
Don’t forget your URL
You’ll need to include your virtual collection page URL with each post, so your friends, family, colleagues and community know where to donate.
