Getting Sponsors

Tell the world you're taking part

Here are a few ideas to help you raise the £108 sponsorship target.

Local Newspaper

Local papers are always interested in good stories so write a letter to the editor to let them know what you'll be doing. If possible send a good quality picture with it.

Facebook.

There are some great tips on how to use facebook to maximum effect on the Just Giving website. Did you know that over 20% of all traffic to Just Giving results from Facebook? Check out this link for more information.

Twitter

Tweet your followers and let them all know about OM YogaThon. Tweet your daily training progress and encourage more donations with a link to your Just Giving page

Email

Email everyone you know the link to your just giving page. Explain what you will be doing at OM YogaThon, which charity you are supporting and most importantly, ask them to sponsor you.

Posters.

We'll be sending you some posters to put up in your yoga studio, place of work or other places you frequent. The posters ask for friends and anyone that knows you to pledge sponsorship. There is a place to add details of your just giving page on the poster.

Once you have completed the OM YogaThon contact your supporters and thank them for their kind donations. It's always great to let everyone know how you got on.

If you have any other suggestions to help others raise more sponsorship, let us know by email and we'll post the ideas on this page.
