For those fundraisers who go above and beyond and raise over $500 we’re offering our special supporter pack which includes an R U OK? Beanie, wrist band and water bottle.
How to smash your fundraising goals!
Personalise your page
Make sure you add a profile pic and if you have a personal story of why you’re taking part, and you’re comfortable sharing, please do.
Set the bar
Show your commitment to the challenge and the cause by making the first donation to your page.
Before you go hard on social media, ask a few close friends (ones you know will support you) to make a donation. Once you’ve got a few runs on the board, cast the net wider and even more people will be keen to support you.
Social media is a great way to reach a wide audience - to reach even more people tag @ruokday and use #ksforruok and we'll share your pics here.. Email allows you to reach a lot of friends and teammates, but don’t forget the power of good old conversation – you can always drop into a chat that you’re taking part in K's for R U OK? and let your friends know why.
It’s not a secret
You're doing something awesome! So why not let everyone know what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Be sure to share daily updates – and they don’t all have to be asking for donations. Share photos or videos of you clocking up your K's or share some of the R U OK? resources. Don’t forget to tag @ruokday and use #ksforruok and we'll share your pics here.
Don’t be afraid to ask
Most people will be delighted to support you and R U OK? It may take a few tries so be sure you get your reps in – ask a few times and in different ways – email / phone / in person / social media.
Show your gratitude
Make sure to thank every donor for their support, this could be a phone call, email or post on social media. A post showing your progress and tagging your latest donors to thank them is a great way to increase interest and show your gratitude at the same time .
