With the holiday season right around the corner, now is a perfect time to start thinking about how to make the most out of your campaign. With people starting to celebrate all kinds of different holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s), now is an excellent time to bring up your campaign! You’ll be surrounded by family and friends, who are your main target audience and donors. Since everyone will be together, this is a great time to ask for donations. By explaining what you will be able to do, see, and experience with their contribution, you will be able to convince others to donate. Below are some ideas on how you can bring up your campaign to your friends and family during the holiday season.
Give a Holiday Speech
Whether you are attending or hosting a holiday party, these are both perfect opportunities to let everyone know that you are raising money for your meaningful travel experience and that you need their help. By giving a speech or just connecting with other party goers, you will be able to connect with your donors in person. Doing this will add a personal connection to your campaign and increase your donations. An important thing to consider when giving your holiday speech is to motivate party goers to take action. You could ask your audience to pull our their phone and look up your campaign or even have a signup sheet where people could write down their email or phone number to learn more about your campaign. So make sure to take advantage of these social gatherings, and connect with your target audience to increase your donations!
