  • Include details about your personalised fundraising page on invitations with pictures and the reason why you’ve chosen to fundraise for us at your celebration
  • Include the link to your fundraising page on emails and invitations to let family and friends know you’d like them to donate. Don’t forget to share it as a reminder so people who can’t make it can still donate
