RESOURCES

Thanks for joining us in the Daisy Days 31-Day Challenge! To help you make the most of your participation — and raise funds for breakthrough sickle cell research and care at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia — we’ve compiled some resources you can use to help the kids. Share this page with your teammates!

Share Your Why

Make your fundraising page personal! Share with family and friends why you are raising funds for CHOP.

Donate

Donate to yourself and kick off your fundraising. Statistics show individuals are more likely to donate when they see others have!

Rally the Team

Share your stories and fundraising strategies. Encourage teammates to do the same. See our Team Fundraising Ideas.

Ask Everyone

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 Social

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.

Emails

Send individual emails to each of your family and friends. Remember to be specific when asking for a donation! See our Email Writing Tips.

Text Messaging

Do you have family or friends who don’t check their email often? Try sending a text message with your fundraising page URL.

Double Your Impact

Matching gifts are a great way to double your impact! Check with your HR department or search our matching gifts directory.

Follow Up

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 — and raise more money for kids with sickle cell disease — by following the simple tips below.

Recognize Your Supporters

Give your supporters a shout out with a tag or @mention! This can encourage others to donate while also showing your appreciation. You can also thank people through direct messages.

Link to Us!

Even though some posts will be more donation-focused than others, always give people the opportunity to learn more about sickle cell disease and donate using your personal URL.

Use Hashtags

Use #31Days4CHOP and #ForBreakthroughs in your posts to make it easy for your friends to follow your progress in miles and fundraising!

Tag Us

Tag @Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on Facebook, @ChildrensPhila on Twitter, or @ChildrensPhila on Instagram so we can follow along.
