Tips and Ideas

Your fundraising efforts through the One Walk Step Challenge will fund critical research focused on improving lives and curing type 1 diabetes. To help you on your way, we’ve put together a list of our top tips and ideas to help you reach your fundraising goal.

Tip #1

Social media is your fundraising friend

Use the power of social media to spread the word to family, friends and co-workers about your challenge. Simply share your fundraising page on your Facebook or Instagram profile, letting people know you are taking part in the One Walk Step Challenge and why it's important to raise funds for T1D research.

You can also use our FREE Social Media tiles to help you spread the word

Tip #2

Donate to yourself

Make the first donation yourself to set the standard and encourage your friends to follow your lead. This will show your personal commitment to the cause and inspire others to support you.

Tip #3

Spruce up your fundraising page

Personalise your fundraising page to share your reason for taking part and ask your friends to sponsor your walk.

Here are some key ways to use your page:

  • Upload a photo of yourself or the person you’re walking for
  • Share your personal story for taking part in JDRF One Walk
  • Post blog updates (on your page) to thank your sponsors and update everyone on your progress

Tip #4

Organise a fun games night to raise funds

Gather your friends, family or co-workers and organise a fun games night, whether it be trivia, bingo or a murder mystery night. Let people know about your cause - those who wish to take part in the online games donate a fee to help you in your mission to defeat T1D!

Tip #5

Declutter to Donate

Got a few books collecting dust at home? Why not sell them to raise funds ! Other items you sell can include clothing, homewares, electronics - anything you don't use anymore that's in good working condition. It's now easier than ever to sell online - Facebook Marketplace and Ebay are a few great options.

Tip #6

Donate your birthday

Got a birthday coming up? Ask people to donate to your fundraising page as part of their gift to you!
