Make the most of your JustGiving page

If you need help with setting up your JustGiving page click here for an easy guide on how you can do this; it only takes five minutes to set up and is a great and easy way to ask everyone you know to sponsor you.

It helps if you include as much of a personal touch as you can, so try to add photos to your page, as well as the reasons why you’re doing such a great thing and raising money for Princess Alice Hospice.

Raising sponsorship money

  • Once you’ve set up your JustGiving page, ask your most generous friends to sponsor you first.
  • Let everyone at work or school know that you’re taking part and encourage them to sponsor you or even to take part themselves.
  • Email everybody in your address book – and don’t forget to include the link to your JustGiving page.
  • Don’t be embarrassed to ask people you haven’t seen for a while – it’s a good excuse to get back in touch with those you’ve lost contact with.
  • Send gentle reminders – either by text, email or post – to all your potential donors, especially around payday.
  • After you have completed the event, update your JustGiving page with a picture of yourself taking part. Email everyone with the link to your revised page and they might even sponsor you a little bit extra.
  • Ensure that you thank all your sponsors for donating money to your fundraising target and helping to support you and Princess Alice Hospice.
