Fundraising Tips

Live Below the Line gives participants a powerful opportunity to share their experiences and raise vital funds along the way.

  • Start early. The longer you spend fundraising, the more money you’ll raise.

  • Start by sending an email to everyone you know asking for a donation, just by reaching out you are spreading the word of the campaign.

  • Set a personal realistic fundraising target: e.g. £100

  • Update your email signature by adding a link to your personal fundraising page and a short note saying that you will be living below the line

  • Use social media to invite friends to become involved

  • Get your workplace engaged. Ask your boss if your company will match your donations

  • Tell potential donors why you are passionate about ending extreme poverty and the charity you are supporting. Keep it personal!

  • Thank donors for their generosity on social media in a public way

  • Start a team and fundraise together

  • Keep fundraising even after the challenge week is over

Have fun and enjoy the challenge!
