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 (APDA).
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.
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.
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.
Now that you've built it and are sharing it, you will want to keep it up to date.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Dedicate a page to a loved one's memory. It is a great way to share how this person affected your life.
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.
Ask your friends and family to support APDA in lieu of gifts.
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.
