Millions of people celebrate their birthdays on Facebook every day, with people wishing each other well, sending messages and photos of good times.
Facebook Birthday Fundraisers are a great way to make your birthday extra special, more memorable and raise funds for St John’s Hospice!
When your birthday is coming up, Facebook will invite you to create a fundraiser. You can select St John’s Hospice as your nominated charity. You can then select how much you would like to raise and when you would like to run your fundraiser until.
Facebook will also invite you to tell your friends and family why you have chosen to dedicate your birthday to St John’s Hospice. You can take this opportunity to share your experiences and that of your family.
Once these details have been set you’re good to go. Setting up a fundraiser won’t cost you anything. You have the option to match the donation amount to give your fundraiser a boost if you wish.
You can then invite your friends and family to donate to your birthday fundraiser and spread the word on your birthday fundraising target.
Fun and easy fundraising activities like Facebook Birthdays is a great way to help us continue to provide care and treatment in the hospice and out in the community.
Community fundraising for St John’s Hospice is incredibly important for us, only around one third of our funding is from the NHS, two thirds comes from people like you in our community.
Every donation, however small or large makes a positive difference – thank you and Happy Birthday!
