One week from today, we will be hosting our 10th annual hemophilia walk.  We are so proud of everyone that has raised money thus far.  So far, we’ve raised nearly 70% of our goal.  We still have a ways to go to meet or exceed our goal of $300,000.  Not registered or on a team yet?  It’s not too late!  Already have a team?  Use these ideas to increase your teams fundraising goals.

Let’s talk about how you can raise $500.00 in just 7 days.  Here’s some great ideas from the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF):
  • Sponsor yourself first:  $50.00
  • Ask 4 family members to sponsor you for $25.00 each:  $100.00
  • Ask 5 co-workers to contribute $15.00 each:  $75.00
  • Ask 5 friends to contribute $15.00 each:  $75.00
  • Ask 5 neighbors to sponsor you for $15.00 each:  $75.00
  • Ask your boss for a company contribution of $50.00:  $50.00
  • Ask 3 businesses you frequent for a donation of $25.00 each:  $75.00
Who should you ask to contribute?  Here’s some ideas:
  • Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Cousins, Uncle, Aunt
  • Doctor, Dentist, Pharmacist, Pediatrician
  • Landlord, Roommates, Neighbors
  • Co-Workers, Boss
  • Attorney, Accountant, Teachers, Banker
  • Hairstylist, Manicurist, Grocer, Baker, Coach, Dry Cleaner
  • Repairman, Doorman
  • Best friend, Friends
In addition to raising funds, we have set a goal of having 2,000 or more participants attend our tenth walk.  This is a great opportunity to pay it forward, meet the wonderful people connected to the bleeding disorders and have a great afternoon of fun!  The best part?  You don’t have to have a bleeding disorder to participate!
