Five-month targets smashed in six weeks
Let’s not beat around the bush. Charity fundraising is hard – really hard. If it’s not the challenge of marketing your campaign, it’s getting people to dig into their pockets.
That’s why you need all the support you can get.
And that’s where Katie Lingo comes in.
Just ask the team at Deafblind UK.
Back in 2018, when Katie was writing for Deafblind UK’s charity magazine, she was offered the chance to run the London Marathon for them. The catch? The mean feat of raising £1,500 in five months.
Undeterred, Katie turned the fundraising mission into something of a comic relief campaign. In exchange for donations, she would humiliate herself in public and film the evidence.
The result? Coverage on local television, BBC Radio and in local press. Viral views on social media and a smashed fundraising target within six weeks.
Charity fundraising should be fun, no matter how serious the cause. Ask us for help formulating creative ideas.
