Promote your fundraiser!

  • Announce your fundraiser! Share it or include a link to your fundraiser page. Make sure to share on other social media channels too, like Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn (be sure to include a link to your fundraiser). 
  • Post updates! Did you hit the halfway mark toward your goal or another important dollar amount? Share and keep your network invested in reaching your goal.
  • Create a short video sharing why you are raising funds - is it for your birthday, in honor of someone? Share your inspiration to inspire others.
