Why did you determine to fundraise for the Oral Well being Basis?

I used to be impressed by Charlie Rees’ story, a younger girl who misplaced her life to mouth cancer. I wished so as to add one thing to her legacy. 

Are you able to describe what your fundraising occasion was?

A 15,000ft tandem skydive.

Why did you select to do that?

I select to do a skydive, then determined to benefit from the chance by doing it for charity, then select the Oral Health Foundation.

The inspiration for the skydive was primarily to assist overcome my worry of heights and to see what I’m able to.

It seems, I’m much more succesful than I first thought and it has spurred me on to maintain difficult myself and venturing outdoors of my consolation zone.

What was your greatest fundraising second?

There have been three in truth.

Firstly, being sponsored by individuals who I didn’t suppose can be supportive.

Secondly, reaching my fundraising goal.

Then, lastly, smashing my goal by elevating 115%!

As a result of the Oral Well being Basis is not an official charity supported by GoSkydive, my bounce was self-funded (I paid all bounce prices myself) so all the pieces I raised went straight to the charity.  

What prime suggestions do you could have for fundraisers to be?

  • Don’t go away it to the final minute.
  • Don’t be afraid to put up common updates to nudge individuals who wish to sponsor you, however simply hadn’t received round to it but. However, ensure they’re attention-grabbing, related and each is completely different – avoid simply saying ‘sponsor me’.
  • Say thanks personally to everybody who sponsors you whatever the quantity.
  • Take into consideration what you’re going to do when you don’t attain your goal – are you ready to prime up the distinction your self? It’s because for occasions like a skydive you gained’t have the ability to bounce except you could have achieved your goal earlier than your bounce day.
