It’s time to sell some virtual lemonade.
Sell you virtual lemonade online! You can use the suggested price for a cup, jug, bucket or case of lemonade and know that every dollar will help children with vision impairment and hearing loss. The money you raise will go directly to the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children to help deliver innovative support programs that help children to reach their full potential. Thanks for Making a Stand!
How do I ask people I know to buy my virtual lemonade and donate?
The most effective way to get people to donate to your page is by asking them! Share your fundraising page with all of your friends and family via Facebook, Instagram or email. It’s always amazing to see your family and friends support you in helping out a cause you’re passionate about. Just share your ‘why’ for participating to really connect and encourage their support. The about section on your page is a great place to share why you’re Making a Stand. You could even make a short video of your ‘why’ to share and make it even more personal.
How do people donate to my fundraising page?
They simply go to your fundraising page via the link you give them and click the ‘Donate’ button, then search for your name to make a donation directly to your page.
How much do cups and jugs of virtual lemonade cost?
You can accept donation of any amount for your lemonade, but we suggest selling it for:
$15 for a Cup - could purchase craft resources to use in therapy sessions.
$50 for a Jug - could fund a 1 hour early intervention group session.
$100 for a Bucket - could transcribe a toddler book into braille.
$350 for a Case - could provide a Parenting Group session for families with babies under 12 months with Hearing loss.
Where does the money raised go?
All money raised for RIDBC goes towards helping to provide children with vision impairment and hearing loss with the best quality and innovative services so that they too can achieve their fullest potential. Our $30,000 target for this fundraising activity is to assist 600 children to have their first session of Early Intervention. You can read more about RIDBC’s work here.
