  • Set up a fundraising page to make it easy for people to sponsor you
  • Explain to people why it will be a challenge for you to give this up, and why you’re doing it
  • Keep your supporters up to date with how you’re finding it
  • Share videos and information about our work so that people who donate know how their money will make a difference
