We know it’s hard asking people for money, so here are some ideas to make it easy!
- Send a letter or email with a link to the campaign. Share your personal story of life with type 1 and ask for their support.
- Set up a spare change jar collection at your school, office, or at home. It really adds up!
- Host an event—from a casual meet up to partnering with a local business—whatever suits your style.
- Athon: sweat for good! Lap-athon, jump-athon, ping pong-athon, any-athon will do. A great way to engage friends, family and kids.
- Read So you don’t think you can fundraise?
