The best way to raise funds

The best way to raise funds for Diabetes NSW & ACT is to set  up a fundraising page on everydayhero. Once your page is created, we’ll review and approve it on the site. You can then go ahead and email everyone you know the link to your page, asking them to donate.

Keeping people up to date on your progress and thanking them for their donations will encourage them to donate more – and perhaps even tell other people about your efforts.

Don’t forget that social media is a great way to get the word out and don’t be afraid to include the link to your donation page in each post and ask people to support you.

Everydayhero works best if your page is linked to a challenge that you are undertaking, such as:

  • A sponsored swimming, hiking, jogging, cycling, dancing, reading, table tennis or golf marathon – or climbing a mountain, or running the City2Surf;
  • Giving something up for a number of days, such as junk food or watching television;
  • Travelling light;
  • Camping out.

Diabetes NSW & ACT hold an annual fundraising event – the Great Ocean Road Walk. If a five day fundraising walk along one of the most beautiful parts of the Great Ocean Road appeals to you, please let us know and we will send you the details.
