Reach your target and raise more with these top tips
Your friends and family are your biggest supporters. Here's some ways you can encourage them to donate to your Crowdfunding Page.
1. Shake it up!
Host a cocktail evening and invite your friends and family - What's your favourite cocktail? Espresso martini, Cosmo, Margarita? Set an amount and sell tickets for the evening - your guests can pay for tickets in the form of a donation to your page.
2. Ready? Set? Bake off!
Are you a big fan of Mary Berry? Encourage some healthy competition by asking your friends to bake some delicious treats. Sell them in your workplace or local school and crown your bake-off winner!
3. Fancy Dress Friday
Get silly and organise a fancy dress day in your workplace - set a minimum donation amount for your colleagues to take part.
4. Carboot sale
One man's trash is another man's treasure. Time for a throw out? Grab some of your friends and sell your old belongings to raise some cash for your cause.
Invite your creative friends round for an afternoon of arts and crafts. You provide the materials and your friends get stuck in. Sell tickets for the afternoon or encourage your friends to buy each others creations by making a donation to your page.
6. Dinner party
Get busy in the kitchen. Ask your friends to pay what they think your dinner was worth by making a donation to your page - let's hope they're not tough food critics!
