Weddings, graduations, anniversaries – make your special day truly memorable by asking for Do it for Heart donations in lieu of receiving gifts

Knowing you’re helping others can be a great way to share the joy of a milestone moment in your life. Start by registering your Do it for Heart fundraiser and setting up your personal fundraising page. Email your friends, family and other guests to explain your fundraising goal, and include links to your page and a request for donations in lieu of gifts. Once your fundraiser is finished, send a thank-you email to everyone who contributed – and be sure to tell them how much you raised!
