You could create a Facebook event and invite people to your Tea Party; remember to include your fundraising page URL in the event invite.

You can also send invitations via email or SMS, pop a poster up in your workplace or community club (you’ll find these online here), or put a notice in the local magazine or newspaper. 

If you’re hosting in your workplace, ask if you can advertise on your internal communications channels or add to your email signature.

How do I ask people for donations?

add remove

People donate because they are asked – so don’t be afraid of asking! 

Tell your supporters why the cause is important to you and remind them that every dollar counts – every dollar will go towards supporting those living with Parkinson's. 

Many workplaces also offer dollar matching, so it’s worth asking your boss if they will do this.

Also, don't be afraid to follow up on ask. We all live busy lives, someone might have every intention of donating to your Tea Party, but it has slipped their mind, so a simple reminder won't go astray.

I shared my fundraising page on Facebook and it prompted me to add a donate button, should I use this?

add remove

We would advise you don’t use the Facebook donate button. As donations via Facebook are managed by a third party, we are unfortunately unable to track the funds you raise on Facebook. This means that any donations made using the Facebook donate button will not appear on your fundraising page or be added to your total fundraising amount.

Once you have registered, you will be provided with a unique QR code which can be used to make cashless payments at your event or used on flyers or posters to direct people to your fundraising page.

Once you log in to your fundraising hub, under Get Support there is the option to download and print your QR code to display at your event. 

Attendees will be able to simply scan the QR code using the camera on their phones and be taken directly to your online fundraising page to donate to your tea - without worrying about cash!
