Whether you want to camp out in a haunted house for a night, write a novel in a month, or go tenpin bowling in a gorilla costume, you can turn almost anything into a Do it for Heart fundraiser.
Once you’ve decided on a fundraising idea, register with Do it for Heart and set up your personal fundraising page. Email your contacts, post on social media, and ask your friends, family and colleagues to donate and spread the word about what you’re doing – or, if you’ve come up with a group challenge, ask them to join you. Once the event is over, send a thank-you email to everyone who contributed – and be sure to tell them how much you raised!
We’ve got lots of resources to help you run your event. Once you have registered you will be able to access:
- Our top fundraising tips.
- Fundraising toolkit.
- Invitations and other event materials.
- Template email to ask for sponsorship and thank your donors.
Gemma and the team at F45 for Kardinya completed 500 burpees within an hour to honour family members affected by heart disease. Gemma almost lost her step dad to heart disease and wanted to do something to give back. The 500 Burpee challenge was created.
“I was surprised at how easy it was, I originally set a fundraising target of $1,000 but once I started sharing the fundraising page it kept growing. Each time my goal was achieved I would increase it again”
