Once you've registered for the Silver Lining Ride and got your fundraising page ready to go, here's a few tips to kickstart your fundraising:
- Personalise your fundraising page
Add to your page description by explaining why you're joining the ride and why people should support you with a donation or by sharing your page. Simply click "edit page" at the top of your fundraising page.
- Donate to yourself first!
Statistics show that people are more likely to donate to your page if you have already donated to yourself - it shows that you're committed to your fundraising and you're willing to chip in yourself to get the ball rolling.
- Share the link to your fundraising page on social media
Whether it's Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn or in your WhatsApp group with your mates, getting your page out there is a great way to get people on board. Don't be afraid to ask people to share your link with their networks as well!
- Send an email to family, friends and colleagues
Sending an email is a more direct and personal way to communicate why you are joining the Silver Lining Ride, and what your fundraising means to you and to the future of ovarian cancer in Australia.
