Hitting the press

Here’s our top tips for making your JustGiving page a news story.

Who to contact

Getting your story in the press could help you get more donations. Contact your local newspaper by searching for their details online.

What to say

Journalists read hundreds of stories a week so make sure yours stands out. Write an attention-grabbing subject line, and give details in your email about your fundraising and why you’re doing it.

Make your page stand out

Photos and videos are a great to tell your story without words. The press will be more likely to pick up your story if you send them strong images.

And finally, don’t forget to…

Keep it short and sweet.

Get to the point and let people know the reason behind your crowdfunding.

Post frequently.

Where possible, upload images or livestream to your JustGiving page.

Share it far and wide.

Get your page out there on social media. Tag celebrities on Twitter and ask them to repost too.
