2010 is going to be a huge year for the dumball – we are turning it into a fundraising powerhouse, all in aid of a fantastic cause – the Teenage Cancer Trust, who we have pledged, on your behalf, to raise £100,000 for. How are we going to do that? Well, we won’t lie – you’ve got a bit of work to do.
HOW TO RAISE £1000
1) CONTACT PEOPLE PERSONALLY
Don’t just send a mass e-mail pointing to your microsite, call or e-mail people personally. There’s over 100 days left until the dumball. Just contact one person a day and kindly ask them for £20, they are a million times more likely to respond. Well done, you’ve raised £2000!
2) ASK YOUR BOSS FOR COMMERICIAL SPONSERSHIP
We don’t care if your car is amblazoned with your work logo – milk ‘em for all they are worth!
3) GET THE LOCAL PRESS INVOLVED
Once your car is done contact the local rag. They’ll love a good charity story with a nice picture of some nutters dressed like idiots. We’ll post a link to a press release soon – watch this space. If you need contacts for your local press – just ask, we have a database of them. E-mail Captain Jess Holiday: firstname.lastname@example.org
4) PIMP YOUR CAR UP, AND DRIVE IT AROUND TOWN SHACKIG BUCKETS
You will get loads of TCT stickers in your fundraising pack to help you do this – it’s a must for August bank holiday, which we will declare, NATIONAL DUMBALL DAY!
5) HOLD A FUNDRAISING PARTY
The easiest and most fun way to get money off your friends. Charge on the door – have a raffle – you’ll raise tons!
Ok that’s it for now. We know you can all do this – it’s easy right?
