Social media and email

Updated 08 Feb 2019

Spread the word about your fundraising and why you’re doing it on social media – here are some tips and ideas.

Bloodwise supporters

Sharing videos and photos is especially effective

Don’t forget to always include a link to your fundraising page.

Post about Bloodwise and what your fundraising is going towards

Personal pictures and stories of you are always a good idea, but you might also like to share general posts about the charity and what your supporters’ money can help us achieve. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, where we regularly share inspiring stories about blood cancers and our research that you can share with your followers!

Don’t forget to use email too!

Research suggests that a direct email to your contacts is actually one of most successful ways to encourage donations. Adding details of your fundraising to your email signature at work is another quick and easy way to reach a lot of people both inside and outside your business.
