While that fundraising goal may seem a little intimidating, you have plenty of time, and we have plenty of tips for your team to reach that $5,000!

  1. Personalize your Walk for Wishes team page with a picture and a story-let your supporters know why you are raising money for Make-A-Wish. Don’t have anything of your own to use? Just email and we can provide one for you
  2. Use social media as a tool! Post and share your team link on all platforms (Facebook, Instagram…). Your fundraising page offers quick and easy social media integration.
  3. You can also upload your email contacts and send your appeal and team page link to family and friends!
  4. Make a quick, personalized video explaining why people should donate to your team (or share Selena or Michelle’s adorable videos).  Share and send this to friends and family and definitely post it on social media with a link to your team fundraising page
  5. Have a lemonade stand! No one can resist refreshing lemonade on a hot summer day!
  6. Get your team together, get some buckets and soap, and have a car wash at a local gas station!
  7. Having a BBQ for friends and family? Put out a donation bucket for all your guests!
  8. Are you crafty? Make some jewelry and sell it to raise money for your team!
  9. Are you musical? Set up in a crowded area and sing for donations!
  10.  Pick some flowers and spread love and beauty to people’s day! Make a flower stand for donations!

Keep fundraising and you may just end up on the beautiful beaches of Mexico!  Thank you for helping us grant wishes!

Let the FUNdraising begin!
