Top tips for fundraising on social media
Share why you’re fundraising on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and ask your friends to support your Capes for Kids campaign.
Announce and celebrate when you reach milestones and fundraising goals. Make sure to include #CapesForKids and tag Holland Bloorview in your posts.
Post pictures showing your friends everywhere you rock your cape! You can wear your cape to the movies, while walking your dog or even to the grocery store.
Every update should include a link to your personal fundraising page so your network can easily support your capes for kids fundraising efforts.
Ask friends to share your fundraising page!
Thank people who have donated by posting a thank you and tagging them.
