As we anxiously approach the marathon, a motivated group of dancers have already exceeded their fundraising goals of $200! We ask them how they did it.
Lindsey Deaton, who has personally raised $200, said she did most of her fundraising online.
“I put up a link on Facebook and wrote about why I’m in Carolina for the Kids for family and friends, and I was able to raise my $200 through that one post,” Deaton said. It can be as easy as as a thoughtful post and one click to spread the word and get started!
In order to reach her goal, Sarah McClain used a slightly different method.
“I truly owe it all to letter push! I sent letters out to almost all of my family and my parents’ friends, and I was surprised with the amount of donations I received over the winter break!”
Family and friends are great resources, and letter push can be an invaluable to reach out to connections in a meaningful way, so look out for future letter push campaigns!
Ashlyn Barbee used connections to obtain more funds as well.
“I actually have family who has been directly impacted from CFTK, so I wrote personal messages to people in my family asking them to donate. I also posted my webpage to Facebook, and that got me some donations. Other people in my family shared the message, and the word spread that way!”
Networking, letter push, and Facebook are all great ways to work your way towards to marathon. Congratulations to all of our dancers we have passed their $200 dollar goal, and good luck to everyone working towards theirs.
