Enhance your online giving efforts!
1. Set up your child’s own webpage.
When your child has a personalized webpage, friends and family, near and far, can help support your child’s goals. But some help from an adult will be needed to set up the page.
Click on the DONATE tab at the top of the website to find your school. Once you get to your school page, you can:
- Join a classroom. Find the classroom teacher’s name from a drop down list to register. Once you have registered you will receive an email with a link to your unique fundraising page.
- If your child’s school has not set up any classrooms, follow the steps to join as an individual.
2. Use social media.
Ask your social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) to help support your child’s fundraising efforts. Make sure you include the link to your child’s fundraising page. Your social networks are a good place to also thank any donors, which gives you another opportunity to remind your network to donate. Here are some sample posts:
- My [son/daughter] is fundraising in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Student Series. Please donate to support [his/her] efforts in the fight against blood cancers: [insert link to fundraising page]
- Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. My [son/daughter] wants to help change that number and is fundraising for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Student Series. Please donate: [insert link to fundraising page]
3. Send a Fundraising Email
Who do you know? Brainstorm and make a list of your potential donor network! A donor network is a list of friends, family members, neighbors, etc. who you plan to ask to donate to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
