How does it work?

These ten tips will help make your fundraising inititative an even bigger success!

  1. Create an action page and give it a personal touch with a picture and your motivation.

  2. Share the link of your action page with friends, family and colleagues via WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.

  3. Download your own QR code via the red icon on your action page and share this with everybody. This will help people easily access your action page and - hopefully - hit the donate button!

  4. Use the War Child fundraising logo in your communications.

  5. Keep your sponsors up-to-date with photos, videos and messages.

  6. Use ‘send lists’ in your WhatsApp, and ask your contacts to contribute to your initiative.

  7. Use the Dutch app 'Tikkie' to easily ask for donations. If you' like, we can provide you with a personal Tikkie code, linked to your fundraiser. Let us know if you're interested.

  8. Raising funds through sports? You can link your Strava-account via the performance tracker and let keep everybody informed of your progress for War Child.

  9. Don't hesitate to ask for donations. You are not asking for yourself, but for conflict-affected children. 

  10. Thank everyone for their support through your fundraising page or e-mail.
