Optimism Personal Campaign

Create Your Personal Optimism Campaign Now!

A Personal Campaign Page is an ideal tool to use when friends, family members and co-workers ask, "What can I do to help?"   It is a meaningful way to include others in your effort to support Parkinson's disease research, awareness and local educational support services. 

These pages can be used to honor or memorialize a family member or friend, commemorate a birthday, wedding, or anniversary, or create your very own fundraiser, while supporting the mission of the American Parkinson Disease Association, Inc. (APDA).

How it Works

Step One

Create your Personal Campaign Page now.  There are no limits to the ways you can get involved.  Customize your page by writing a personal story or adding a picture.

Step Two

Invite friends and family to join you—the more the merrier—and start collecting donations.  Send out emails and post it on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Linkedin. When posting, provide a direct link or URL to your personal campaign page.

Step Three

Say thank you to your donors! You'll be notified whenever a gift is made. We will supply you with a sample thank you email, but you can personalize it or write your own.

Update It

Now that you've built it and are sharing it, you will want to keep it up to date.

 

Select Your Campaign Type

Personal campaign fundraising pages allow you to quickly and easily reach out to family and friends and engage them in your efforts to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson's disease.

Story Pages

Tell your story, set a goal, then share it with others (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google+) and watch the fundraising thermometer on your personal campaign rise!

Activity Pages

Do you love to hike or bike?  Maybe you are a bowler or a dancer.  Personal campaigns allows you to turn your current interests and activities into fundraising opportunities.   Join existing APDA events (i.e. annual Walk) or an event sponsored by another group/organization (i.e. 5K, Fun Run, Zumbathon, etc.) and turn it into a personal fundraising opportunity.

Honorary Pages

These pages pay tribute to a loved one and enable that person to receive e-mail notifications when gifts are made in his or her name. Honorary pages can also be used to recognize a positive experience with a doctor, nurse, caregiver, friend, family member or APDA group.

Memorial Pages

Dedicate a page to a loved one's memory. It is a great way to share how this person affected your life.

Weddings or Anniversaries

Ask your guests to donate to APDA in lieu of a gift, post pictures of your special day and share memories with your friends and family.

Birthdays

Ask your friends and family to support APDA in lieu of gifts. 

Everyone wins!

You can have a fun and fulfilling experience, donors can support an organization they believe in, and APDA receives money for research, education and support services.
