There are two platforms you can use create a fundraiser – JustGiving and Facebook. Both are simple to set up and your donations will automatically come to Tŷ Hafan, so you can concentrate on celebrating your big day.
Set up a JustGiving in celebration fundraising page to collect donations. Share the link with friends and family so they can donate to Tŷ Hafan in lieu of gifts. You can even personalise your page by adding photos and videos.
If you already know how to get your birthday fundraiser started, then head over to Facebook to set up and share your page.
If this is your first time, then don’t worry as we have a very simple guide for you to follow. Click here for your Facebook birthday fundraiser guide.
Ask close friends and family to make the first donations to get you started. You could even donate yourself! People are much more likely to donate if they see that you’ve already received donations. You could send your friends and family a message with a link to your fundraiser page.
Share your personal reasons as to why you are fundraising for Tŷ Hafan on your page.
Consider suggesting a donation amount rather than a birthday gift instead.
To increase donations, why not set up yourbirthday fundraiser two weeks before the big day?
It’s your birthday so have as much fun as possible with it! No fundraising goal is too small or too large.
