HOW TO GET STARTED
Donate/fundraise as an individual during your registration process.
Set a fundraising goal. Aim high! We suggest a minimum goal of $100 per person.
Next, and this is the most important part, recruit friends and family to join your team.
Get your fundraising efforts started with a personal donation to start your team page.
Fundraise online via email or social media and in-person every day in your community. See SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA for social media ideas.
WHO TO ASK
Ask your co-workers, friends, family, physicians, bankers, mechanics, anyone who you have relationship with and feel comfortable asking them to become involved in your fundraising efforts.
Online Fundraising is Easy....And Rewarding!
In minutes, you can set up your personal fundraising page and customize your page with photos and text. Upload your contacts and use the suggested fundraising letter template to send out emails asking friends to join your team or donate. You can also track your donations and send thank you messages to donors. Once you register for the event and create your personal donation/fundraising page you are off and running.
Remember, the #1 reason people give is simply because someone asked.
How will people find my webpage to contribute? A link to your webpage should be attached to each email you send. All they have to do is click on the link to go to your personal page, where they can donate, join your team and view the A HERO'S SALUTE pages. Your page will also have a personal URL you can customize – so it’s easy to remember and easy to share with friends.
