This year is shaping up to be the biggest Giving Tuesday yet at Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, and you can help take it over the top! We’re asking supporters to create a Facebook fundraiser on November 27th to support the search for better treatments and more cures on this day of generosity.
Even better, Country Time is generously matching all donations to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation that day. That means every dollar 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, intuitive and effective. Here is a handy how-to video to quickly get your page up and running.
- 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 November 27th!
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 find a cure for all children with cancer! You can help make a difference in the war against childhood cancer by donating to my Facebook fundraising page. The money you donate will be matched by Country Time and make 2X the impact for finding better treatments and cures. Thanks for your support!"
Once your page is created, share it on November 27th with as many people as possible. Every dollar Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation raises on Giving Tuesday will also generously be matched by Country Time. Make sure your supporters know that every dollar they give will have 2X the impact for finding better treatments and cures.
We’ve created several graphics you can use with your Facebook fundraiser to help spread the word.
