How To Get Started
Need some help getting started fundraising? Here are some easy things to do to get going.
1. Register! If you haven't done so already registering is the first thing you need to do. Registering will give family and friends a place to make donations online (with donner drive) and gives you a place to keep track of all the donations you've received.
If you haven't yet, register here.
2. Set a goal! How much do you want to personally raise? Choose how much you want to raise and work towards it!
3. Post about MadiTHON on your social media pages! Sites such as Facebook are great tools to raise money. You can share your donor drive page on Facebook so your family and friends can easily click on the link and donate to you! Using social media sites will let your other friends/family members who aren't in the JMU community know about MadiTHON and what you are fundraising for!
4. Send letters! One of our favorite ways to fundraise is through our letter writing campaign. It's easy! Just go to our Letter Writing page, choose your favorite letter and download it. Add a personal touch to our pre-made letter to say why you are participating in MadiTHON this year then send it to your out-of-town family and friends. We have five different letters you can choose from, each highlighting a different miracle child who spent time at the UVA Children's Hospital.
