Thanks for joining us in the Daisy Days 31-Day Challenge! To help you make the most of your participation, we’ve compiled some resources you can use to help the kids at CHOP — one step at a time.
REMEMBER: You can earn fun incentives by continuing your 31-Day Challenge fundraising through June 7, 2017.
Share Your Why
Make your personal fundraising page personal! Share with family and friends why you are raising funds for CHOP.
Set a Goal
Pick a goal that is just right for you. One that is realistic, yet challenging. All funds raised for CHOP make a difference!
Donate to yourself and kick off your fundraising. Statistics show individuals are more likely to donate when they see others have!
Don’t be afraid to ask everyone to support you! What about your hair stylist? Pharmacist? Co-workers? See Fundraising in 7 Days for more ideas.
Get out there NOW!
The sooner you start, the more money you will raise.
You may be surprised at the support you’ll receive from a Facebook post, tweet or Instagram photo. Share your fundraising page on all your social media outlets.
Send individual emails to your family and friends. Remember to be specific when asking for a donation! See our Email Writing Tips.
Some folks don’t check their email very often. Try sending text messages! Be sure to include your fundraising page URL.
Double Your Impact
Matching gifts are a great way to double your funds! Check with your HR department or search our matching gifts directory.
Rally the Team
Share your stories and fundraising strategies. Encourage teammates to do the same.
Remind yourself why you are fundraising by going to CHOP’s website and watching or reading patient stories.
Most people are willing to help but some might need a reminder. Don’t be afraid to follow up and let them know any amount can help!
Thank You, You and YOU!
Remember to thank ALL of your donors because without them, CHOP would not be the hospital it is today. Tag your donors on social media and recognize them publicly for helping your cause.
Social Media Tips
Using social media to support your fundraiser can be easy, effective and fun! Get your friends and family involved in your cause by following the simple tips below.
Recognize Your Supporters
