Ways You Can Help Raise Funds
You can make a difference in the future of LAM! Over 90% of funds donated to The LAM Foundation have been made in honor or memory of a woman with LAM. Whether virtual or in-person, there is no effort too big or too small – it’s all up to what works for you! Below are some excellent examples of the events that have been successful over the years, and tools to help get you started. How will you get involved?
Online and Virtual Fundraising
In this time of social distancing, social media and technology, it’s easy to raise funds online. The LAM Foundation can help you set up your own donation page to share with friends and family across the globe. Click on the How To instructions below, add your pictures and your story, and you’ll have your very own fundraising page in minutes to share on social media, email, or your own website. Click below for inspiration from past fundraisers, or come up with your own idea. Have questions, or need help setting up your site? Contact our Development Team at 513-777-6889 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Facebook makes it easier than ever for you to fundraise for The LAM Foundation by asking your family and friends to donate to The LAM Foundation directly in a post. You can get started by going here: https://www.facebook.com/TheLAMFoundation. Click the gray “+Create Fundraiser” button, and then the blue “Get Started” button. From there, you can set your goal, and the date your fundraiser will end.
On the next page, you can create your title, and write a blurb about why you’re raising money – or you can use part or all of what’s already written for you! On the page after that, you can select a photo – we have some available, including our logo, or you can upload a new photo of anything you like.
Once you’re all set, hit the “Create” button, and this will take you to your own Facebook fundraising page – from here you can invite your friends, share the page, make posts, change your goals, upload new photos, and more.
Virtual Letter Writing Campaignplus
When Jen was diagnosed, the first thing she wanted to do was raise funds for LAM. She wrote to her family and friends to tell them about the disease, what it was doing to her body, and how they could help. An outpouring of support from her community followed, showing there is nothing like telling your story – whether it’s online or on paper!
Joanne created an online fundraiser with a clear goal: to raise $10,000 in honor of the 10th anniversary of her lung transplant. With the help of her family, friends and church (even a few strangers!), Joanne was able to beat her goal.
