FAST START IDEAS

  1. Donate to your own campaign. Your friends, colleagues, and family members will be inspired by YOUR commitment to helping injured veterans achieve their highest ambition.
  2. Tell your story. Share your personal motivation to put the WWP mission in motion and ask others to support your efforts. We’ve provided some samples and generic messages to your dashboard to help you get started.
  3. Send an email. Now that you have your script, send a fundraising email to your family, friends, and colleagues. We have one ready to go in your Dashboard right now.
  4. Post on Facebook and other social media outlets. Tell all your friends that you’re putting the WWP mission in motion at Carry Forward — and invite them to join you. Explain why you are passionate about veterans, post training updates, share your fundraising goals and progress. This will move and inspire your network to rally behind you!
  5. Ask your company for a donation. Or, check to see if your company will match your donation here. When your donations are doubled, they add up quickly.
  6. Results will come. On average, you’ll get one donation for every five people you ask. Your close family and friends will be more generous and supportive of your fundraising efforts, but as you start to reach out to your wider network, it’s common to see a drop-off. Don’t fret. Kudos to you for rallying your community!
