Giving Tuesday, the most generous day of the year, will be here before you know it! This year, you can help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) create more milestone moments for kids with cancer. We’re asking supporters to set up a Facebook fundraiser for December 1, 2020 to support the search for better treatments and more cures on this day of generosity.
Even better, ALDI is generously matching all online donations made to ALSF Giving Tuesday fundraisers that day, up to $100,000. That means every dollar you raise will count double for kids fighting cancer.
To make it simple, here are some resources to help you get started and maximize your impact come Giving Tuesday.
How to Create a Facebook Fundraising Page
Creating a Facebook fundraising page is easy and effective.
- Click this link and follow the steps to fill out your fundraiser information including timeline and amount.
- Add a unique title telling friends it is for Giving Tuesday and upload our ALSF Giving Tuesday cover photo to the page.
- Click “Create.”
- Share your fundraising page with friends and family on December 1!
Here is some sample text you can use for your fundraising page:
"I'm holding a fundraiser on Giving Tuesday to help Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation give kids more milestone moments! You can help make a difference for kids fighting cancer by donating to my Facebook fundraising page. The money you donate will be matched by ALDI and make 2X the impact for finding better treatments and cures. Thank you for your support!"
Once your page is created, share it on December 1, 2020 with as many people as possible. Every dollar Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation raises online through Giving Tuesday fundraisers will generously be matched by ALDI. Make sure your supporters know that every dollar they give will have 2X the impact for finding better treatments and cures.
We’ve created graphics you can use with your Facebook fundraiser to help spread the word.
