How To Get Sponserd
I have recently moved to this area in the N.E uk from Benidorm and do not know any1 please please could I have a few sugestions about how to raise money without knowing any1!!! :? I really really want to raise the amount asked for........ :mrgreen:
Hi there, u cud try at your place of work 1st - there are bound 2b ppl there who will sponsor u if u pester them enough :D
I've never actually done it myself but if you go to www.justgiving.com, you can set up an online sponsorship page, this way you can email friends and family with the link and they can sponsor you online. One of my friends did this and said it was really simple to use! Good luck!
There is a recent post somewhere on the forum where someone posted a link to a big list of fundraising ideas. It was really comprehensive so if you look around you should find it really quickly.
In Istanbul, we won it five times!
I haven't tried Justgiving as my particular charity isn't registered with them, but I did set up a web page when I did the Race for Life and raised about Â£250 more than I would have if I had relied just on people that I meet regularly. So I would recommend it.
You're always better than those who didn't try
raising money towards your marathon can be done on many fronts, I am going to be raising money for Epilepsy Action.
The way's so far that I am looking to do this is following:
- Local Media such as Radio, TV and Newspapers (for a previouse challenge I got a full page spread in 3 local newspapers)
- Just Giving
- making up business like cards that can be placed in shops, bars ect... this would have your challenge name, justgiving address, contact number and email address (you could also aproach a printers whom would then sponsor your challenge in return of free publicity)
- Work, talk to the managing director(s) and put a proposal across, remember what the director(s) will be thinking "What will I get out of this?"
- Do a car boot sale, anything you have that you don't need, or even use ebay, thats a great way to raise money.
If I think of others, I'll post them up.... kind of tired and so needing to sleep!!
This post will be permanently deleted and cannot be recovered. Are you sure?
