Hey all, my birthday is coming up (woohoo more gray hairs!) haha and I think I’d like to celebrate by raising donations for a nonprofit using our new campaign pages! I’ve actually never run a birthday fundraiser before - does anyone have any tips for doing so?
Do I start it on the day of the birthday and only do it for one day, or do I run it for some time before / after?
What are the best ways of getting the word out? I’m thinking Facebook and email as well as some direct asks via various messaging channels.
My friends are scattered over several different cities that I’ve lived in - will people respond better to a local ask (i.e. local foodbank) or a nonprofit that covers a broader area (Feeding America)?
Thank you for any thoughts y’all have
