How to smash your fundraising goals!

Personalise your page

It's your page - so own it!
Add a profile picture so everyone can see it's you.
And, if you have a personal story of why R U OK? is important to you, and you’re comfortable sharing your story, please do.

It’s not a secret

Make sure everyone knows what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Be sure to share updates – and they don’t all have to be asking for donations. You could share photos or videos of your training and preparation or share some of the R U OK? resources.

Start the Ball Rolling

By making the first donation to your page you're showing others that you are dedicated to the cause.
Your friends and family are also more likely to make a donation if somebody else has already made the first donation.

Don’t be afraid to ask

Most people will be delighted to support you and R U OK?
It usually takes a few asks, so make sure you get your reps in – ask a few times and in different ways – email / phone / in person / social media.

Start small

Start off by asking for support from close friends or family (people you know will support you) to make a donation.
Once you’ve got a few donations you can start askin a wider group wider group.

Show your gratitude

Make sure to thank every donor for their support, this could be a phone call, email or post on social media.
A post showing your progress and tagging your latest donors to thank them is a great way to increase interest and show your gratitude at the same time.

Get social

Social media is the simplest way to reach a wide audience - tag @ruokday for a chance to be featured in our Friday Insta Story.
Email is also a great way to ask your friends and workmates for a donation.
And don’t forget the power of conversation – you can always drop into a chat that you’re fundraising and let your friends know why you’re passionate about R U OK? 

When you're posting about your page be sure to tag @ruokday and use #RUOKfundraiser to see your post below and help spread the message further.

Each Friday the best posts will be shared on our Instagram Story.
