Heart&Stroke - The Big Bike
Dear Cheryl,

It’s just 7 days until your Heart&Stroke Big Bike event. As the bike rolls toward your town, keep pushing on the fundraising as every dollar you raise helps to create survivors.

Here is a quick re-cap of 6 great ways to boost your fundraising total:

1. Personalize your page. Upload a photo and write a sentence explaining why you are fundraising for Big Bike. People will donate more when they know why you are riding.
2. Make a self-donation. Donate to yourself and ask others to follow. Give yourself $20 or $50 and just watch as others follow your good example. To do a Selfie now, visit your fundraising page.
3. Send an email to 10 friends. Use one of the templates in your fundraising HQ to quickly reach your friends and family.
4. Add a message to your email signature. Every time you send an email, the recipient knows that you are supporting the Heart and Stroke Foundation and they’ll be happy to support you. Here’s a sample you could use:

I’m riding the Heart&Stroke Big Bike. Please support the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and me, with a secure online donation at my fundraising page.

5. Fundraise with Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and followers why you are doing the Big Bike and ask them to support you. Don’t forget to include your fundraising URL in the post. You can also post direct from your Participant Centre to Facebook and Twitter.
6. Enter any Offline Donations. To upload any offline pledges you have received so they show up on your fundraising thermometer online, simply follow the steps below:

➢ Visit
➢ Login to your personal page
➢ Click on “My tools”
➢ Click “Offline donations”
➢ Click “Enter pledge”
➢ Complete donation details
➢ Click “Submit” button

Together we ride to create survivors.
