Make This Birthday Count For Something
Want to know how you can help the most effective charities in the world without spending a dime? The secret is an online birthday fundraiser! With little time investment, you could raise $500 or more with just a few clicks!
Birthdays are a time when people can fundraise for charity without appearing too pushy. A birthday fundraiser is the easiest way to try online fundraising. We put in the legwork, and you simply accept donations through your personalized webpage. You can run a birthday fundraiser in these selected territories, or have us remind you later when your birthday comes around.
For UK fundraisers, please refer to the AMF webpage to run a tax-deductible online campaign.
Create a Fundraiser
This part is really simple - visit our birthday fundraisers page for the US, the UK, Canada or Australia on leading donations platform CauseVox and click "Create a Fundraising Page." The process should be simple to follow and we’ve provided default text and pictures for you so you’ll be done in no time.
Promote Your Fundraiser
But don't forget the most important part! You won't raise any money simply by creating the page and letting it sit there. Instead, you have to promote it! The more time you put in here, the more money you'll raise.
Post about it on Facebook, often!
Facebook is a great way to share your campaign with people who might be interested. Anyone can see and contribute to it. It's also a great place to thank your donors.
Here's the message that Joey posted, three times within a span of fifteen days:
"I am donating my birthday so if you want to celebrate my birthday or want an excuse to donate to a great charity this is your chance. All funds go to SCI. "http://birthday.causevox.com/joey-savoie"
Here's the message that one woman posted, twice within a span of ten days:
"My birthday’s coming up and I’m donating it to charity! To celebrate my surviving so long, please help children have an education by donating to my birthday page (https://www.youcaring.com/nonprofits/xio-s-donating-her-birthday-/152566)
It all goes to deworming children which increases school attendance and increases their lifelong income."
Send some emails!
Friends and family (even distant family) are also good targets for email. Here are some sample emails that you can use or adapt:

I'm donating my birthday to charity! If you want to give me a present, I'd love for you to help give a child an education. Just $1.25 deworms a child and gives them the energy to go to school.
You can donate through this page I set up. [LINK]"

Hope you're doing well. Just wanted to let you know there are only three days left on my birthday charity fundraiser if you are interested in donating. :)
