HOW TO SET UP YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE

REACH OUT AND ASK FOR SUPPORT

Come up with a list of everyone in your personal network – family and friends, co-workers, doctors, and even service providers. Decide on who you want to ask to join your team, and who you want to ask for contributions in support of your team. Explain why you are seeking team members and contributions and remember to be brief, but informative.
