Information For Rappellers - Fundraising Tips
In order to participate in Over the Edge, you must raise a minimum of $1,500 in pledges to Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas. Please have your pledges raised and paid to Make-A-Wish® by June 2013. If you need any assistance with your fundraising or have any questions, please let us know. Any cash donations can be made on the day of the event.
Here are a few suggestions to help you raise the money:
Ask your friends and family to support or sponsor your efforts.
Ask your employer or other companies to sponsor you by pledging or matching each donation.
Send emails to everyone in your address book with the link to your personal Over the Edge website.
Post a link on your Facebook page. Spread the word via Twitter.
Consider going “Over the Edge” in honor or memory of someone, and let everyone know that.
Hold little events such as bake sales or craft sales. Set up a table at grocery stores with big signs that display the donations are to support Make-A-Wish.We can email you flyers for this event as well to place at local schools or businesses. Just send us your requests.
Be sure to let everyone know that 100% of the money they are donating goes directly to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas is a non-profit organization.
Please remember that $1,500 is the minimum amount that participants must raise; we ask that you not stop your fundraising efforts at that point. Over the Edge is one of the most exciting fundraisers in our organization’s history, and it will make a huge difference in the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
