When you raise $100, ten families receive a hospital survival guide
Lifes’s Little Treasures Foundation does not receive any government funding, so your fundraising efforts are critical in helping support families of premature and sick babies. Follow the link to learn more about how your money helps.
How to help fundraise
1. Set up your fundraising page
Once you have registered for a Walk for Prems event, you will be able to set up your fundraising page, either as an individual or as a team. Follow the simple instructions to send the link to family, friends and work colleagues. Email, your favourite social media or a quick conversation are great ways to reach family, friends and many more. Ask them to share your link with others.
2. Set a fundraising goal
All funds you raise go the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation and you will be surprised how easy it is to reach a target of $600.
3. Collection donations
You could ask people to sponsor your walk direct through your fundraising page, or collect donations from a special event – either way you will reach your target before you know it. For friends and colleagues who are not online, receive donations manually with our Manual Collection Donation form. Read below for further ideas and tips for achieving your fundraising goal.
Fundraising Ideas to start you off
Hold an event
Whether you organise a sausage sizzle at work or get friends together for a trivia night, holding an event is a fun way to raise more for families in need. How much you raise will vary depending on the level of time and energy you can commit to the event. A gold coin donation is a great start or you could hold raffles and auctions to raise even more.
Get your workplace involved
Your place of work, sporting club or community organisation is a great starting point to start your fundraising efforts. Again, asking for a gold coin donation can be an easy way to raise much-needed funds. Many companies also offer a matched funding program whereby they will match dollar-for-dollar the amount you or your team raises. To find out more approach the organisation’s HR delegate and they should be able to take care of you.
