Here's Some Online Fundraising Tips to Help You Make the Biggest Impact:

1. Share your "why." Tell people why you're support Easterseals. When you share why our mission is important to you, it will inspire others to give.
2. Set a goal! Set a personal fundraising goal and invite friends and family to help you reach it. People are more likely to donate when they can help you reach a specific amount.
3. Get the ball rolling. Make the first donation yourself. Demonstarting your willing to support your own cause will encourage others.
4. Share, share, share! Post your fundraiser to social media, send the link in texts, rent a plan and put your fundraiser on an aerial banner! The more people you share your fundraiser with, the easier it will be to reach your goal.
5. Give an incentive to donate. Ask for donations instead of gifts for this year's birthday, pledge to shave your head if you raise $5,000, offer to draw a picture of everyone's pet who donate more than $50 - get creative and give people a reason to give!
6. Get employers involved! Ask your donors if their company matches gifts. Many companies will offer to match employee contributions to charitable organizations. If they are unsure, they can contact their employer's HR or Community Giving Department.
7. Say thank you!  Don't forget to thank your donors for supporting this life-changing work!
