Join the LBDA community of fundraisers and help LBDA do even more to provide valuable support and resources. Whether your goal is to raise $200 or $2,000 your efforts are going to make a major difference in the lives of many people. We have provided three easy steps to help you with your event:
Step 1 – Get Creative
Make your virtual event exciting and memorable by incorporating lives or pre-recorded videos for the event. Create your own hashtag for friends and family to share their participation during the event!
Step 2 – Get Others Involved
Share your event with friends and family. Ask them to share their pictures with your hashtag.
Share details of your event and encourage others to create their own teams. Using social media is also a quick and easy way to spread the word. Be sure to include information and links about how donations to LBDA can be made.
Create an account with frontstream.com, share your about why you want others to support LBDA, and provide family and friends with direct links to your page. Donations come straight to the organization, so you don’t have to worry about managing them.
Step 3 – Share Your Success
Let all your participants and donors know how their donations and efforts impact the lives of those affected by Lewy body dementia.
Tag us on Facebook in your photos and videos on Facebook or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos may be shared on our social media pages.
Create your own unique hashtag and ask them to share their pictures using the tag.
Set up a live video or zoom call for your event. Share the link to the live call on your FrontStream.com page.
