How can I increase my fundraising?

There are many ways to help boost your fundraising. In the days/weeks before your marathon, share on your social media pages telling your friends and followers what you are doing and why. Get hourly sponsors from local businesses or family members. During their ‘hourly slot’ give the business or family member a few shout outs, thanking them for their donation and telling your followers what the business does. Why not get your viewers to give you challenges or dares for extra donations while you are playing? Remember to share to your social media accounts throughout your marathon.

There is no minimum amount to be fundraised. Set a realistic target and work towards it. Every penny goes to help children living with cancer.

The platform you choose to stream on is completely up to you. One popular platform to stream on is Twitch.

 

Will Cancer Fund for Children be able to promote my stream or event?
