Fundraising

Below are a few tips to help you be successful in your fundraising.

TELL YOUR STORY
We all have a story that connects us to CHLA and motivates us to give back. Share your story and inspiration on your personal page.

  • Log into your Participant Center.
  • Click on the “Personal Page” tab (and the “Team Page” tab if you’re a team captain).
  • Type your story in the body section and hit “Save.”

MAKE IT REAL
Do you have a photo or a video that explains why you are walking? Or consider a photo of you “preparing” for your walk with a gentle reminder of your fundraising goal.

  • Log in to your Participant Center.
  • Under the “Personal Page” tab (and the “Team Page” tab if you’re a team captain), select "Photos/Video.”
  • Upload your photo or paste the link to your YouTube video and hit save.

KEEP YOUR WEB PAGE HANDY

  • Create a catchy name for your page.
  • Log in to your Participant Center.
  • Under the “Personal Page” tab (and the “Team Page” tab if you’re a team captain), click on the URL settings link at the top.
  • Type in the name you want and hit “save.”
  • Keep your address handy. Text it to yourself, keep it at the top of your email inbox, or shout it out on Facebook or Twitter.

 

USE EMAIL AND SOCIAL MEDIA
Send emails and use your social media channels to chare your story and progress with your community. Make sure to include your personal fundraising page link and encourage friends and loved ones to support you.

THANK YOUR SUPPORTERS
Don’t forget to thank those who support you. Your Participant Center is equipped with sample emails you could use or you can, of course, write your own message and send it from your Participant Center.
