NZ Music T-Shirt Day

Fundraising Tips

1. Show You're Committed

Donate to Yourself Nothing shows commitment to the cause and challenge like donating to yourself. It's also a great way to lead by example - if you're asking friends and family to make a donation, it makes sense to donate to yourself as well! Plus, people who donate to themselves raise twice as much as people who don't.

2. Spread the Word

Let friends, family and colleagues know you've signed up to the challenge - that way, there's no backing out! Tell them in person (maybe that's a video call now!), send an email, send an SMS, put it on Facebook, Tweet it, Snapchat it; whatever works for you (maybe all of them)! Don't forget to let them know how they can support you and make a donation: share your profile page URL, or ask them to search your name on the website.

3. It's OK to ask more than once

We all need reminding every now and again. You're doing something great for yourself, and for others, so don't hesitate to follow up people, and remind them to make a donation. Even if you've asked before, people get busy or simply forget. An easy way to remind people is by posting updates throughout the month. Don't forget to explain why you're taking part and why NZ Music T-Shirt Day is important to you. Let friends and family know that their donation will not only help to celebrate kiwi music and the people who make it, but it's going to a great cause; helping musicians, crew and music workers who are doing it tough due to COVID-19 and projects throughout the country using music to help and heal people in need.
