DollyBMSFits & Team RAI$ING CAIN!!

Only 11 days to go....another great fundraising idea!

Only 11 days to go...are YOU ready?? It's time to fundraise to reach our goal!!!

Hi DollyBMSFits & Team RAI$ING CAIN!

Only 11 days to go til race day and I couldn't be more excited to see all of you and go on this journey together for such a worthy cause! If you haven't reached your $200 minimum fundraising goal or your personal fundraising goal, now is the perfect time to email and post on FB and get more donations!! If you log into your Participant Center you can click Import Contacts and import all of you email addresses from there. It's super easy and only takes a few minutes. From there you can send out an email and use a template they already have done for you. That is great way to spread the word about your cause and solicit donations!

Another great way to get donations is to sell raffle tickets to win a new Cannondale Bike!! The tickets are $10 each and is just the same as getting a donation, yet they have a chance to win something!! If you need tickets just let me know and I can drop them in the mail to you!!!
Also, if you have a Facebook page, make sure to post the link to your personal donation site so that people can donate that way.

Think outside the Box

Get your yoga studio or local brewery involved. Ask a local restaurant to host a "give back" night. Host a "Party with a Purpose" at your home and invite guests to make a small donation to your fundraising efforts.

These are just a few ways you raise money and awareness. Let me know if you need help any of this. As a team we have raised close to $12,000....let's challenge ourselves to get to $15,000!!!
