TELL YOUR STORY
No matter your reason for supporting CALM, people want to hear about it. Let them know why you’re going the distance to support the movement against suicide, as well as what and how you’re going to do it.
SET A TARGET
Setting a target is a great way to give yourself a goal to aim for. If you smash it, you can always extend the target to encourage more donations.
KEEP IT SHORT AND SWEET
Keep it simple - just a couple of sentences that really explain what and why you're taking on the challenge.
SHARE YOUR JOURNEY
Whether you’re training in the rain, wiping off your muddy shoes, or rallying supporters on the street, share updates to show the hard work you’re putting in.
Giving what you can from your own pocket can help show your commitment to fundraising. It’s also a good way to kick off donations and set the benchmark for future supporters.
ADD A PICTURE
Pictures can speak a thousand words. Add a picture to help tell your story, share your fundraising journey, and give your friends and family an idea of what their support could fund.
WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO?
We know you love CALM, but it’s a good idea to give your friends, family and colleagues an idea of what their money will be making possible. Knowing that £8 can cover the cost of a life-saving call, could encourage people to go the extra mile.
KEEP TRACK OF YOUR FUNDS
Make sure cash and cheque donations are represented on your online page. This helps to show exactly where you are in your fundraising journey.
