“Join Me Fund A Cure” is a resource that allows Fund A Cure to extend beyond the walls of the ballroom, reaching potential donors year-round through peer-to-peer online fundraising pages. Your custom Fund A Cure page offers your friends, family and colleagues a personalized experience, and a way to donate to the JDRF Central Virginia Chapter Gala that is meaningful and distinctly you.
Getting started is easy! You will create your own fundraising page that includes your personal story, passion for and commitment to funding the research that will find a cure for type 1 diabetes. You then share your page via a special “widget” and a link via email, Facebook and other social networking sites. Fundraising pages can be tied to individuals or corporate campaigns.
It’s easy, it’s personal and it’s effective—and we’re happy to help! For assistance with creating your own Join Me page, please contact Katie Ferguson Lovejoy at email@example.com.
