Here are some tips to help you spread the word:
Our team will help you set up your personal fundraising page on TeamRaiser. TeamRaiser will allow you to customize your fundraising page with pictures and text of your choice! When you create your print or digital invitation, be sure to include your fundraising page. Need a shorter URL? Free services like bitly.com or ow.ly will create one for you.
Use the Brigham Parties with Purpose logo and customizable invitation, which can be emailed or printed (download the invitation, download the logo).
Email your extended network and share that your child’s birthday will be celebrated this year by giving back and helping all babies born at the Brigham have the best possible chance for a healthy life. Note that, even if people cannot attend the actual birthday party, they can make a gift of any amount in your child’s honor directly to your personal fundraising page.
Ask, ask, and ask again. Generally, it takes three “asks” before a person responds with a donation. So, if someone does not respond to an email, it does not mean no! Plan to reach out to your network several times.
Use social media, as described in the section that follows.
