Create your birthday donations page and make it personal. Say why you’re doing this and upload a photo of your choice. Pages with photos raise twice the amount! Don’t forget to set a target. Be ambitious. You can change it any time and people love to feel they’re helping you reach a goal, so give them one. Why not ask people to donate your age in pounds (or whatever they can afford). Inject a little humour as well as a heartflet plea – aim to make your readers laugh and cry before they hit that all important ‘donate’ button!
We will of course be keeping in touch with you via email leading up to your birthday, cheering you on with your fundraising and wishing you many happy returns. If you are planning to post on social media don’t forget to include #One25birthdays to join the conversation.
Let’s do this!
