Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?

Anyone! The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to. Ask and thou' shalt get, perhaps :-).

There are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Consider adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal and important to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.

Who can I contact if I need help?

You can contact us any time you need help. We love hearing from participants so please don't hesitate to write to us about any issues you are facing, any suggestions you have, or just to say hi.

We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
