Getting Started with your Fundraising

Paws for Sick Kids has one goal—to make kids smile. Together, our aim is to raise 750 - 1000 nights and make a difference!

Set and Achieve your Fundraising Goal

Make sure you set a fundraising goal on your profile page. Your hooman friends will be more likely to sponsor you if they know you have a personal goal...and they'll help you achieve it.

The higher your fundraising goal, the more support you'll receive from your friends, family and workmates. 

You will find additional resources to use across your social media at the bottom of the page to help you and your hooman make a difference.

Raise $50 and you will receive a PAWS FOR SICK KIDS pet bandana.

Raise $1,600 and you will receive a special PAWS FOR SICK KIDS plush toy.

Customise your profile page

Make your page as personable as possible. Tell your story on why you are doing PAWS FOR KIDS, add updates on your challenges, you can also use tik tok and you tube to upload your videos.

Ask Everyone

Be sure to ask everyone you know to support your efforts to make sick kids smile! You never know who will sponsor you and donations can come from the most unlikely places.

Share your personal story and the goal you hope to achieve, and then let people make their own decision to sponsor you.

If you never ask for support, how will people know to support you? 

Send an Email

Send an email to your hooman friends, family and work colleagues to tell them about your personal challenge to make sick kids smile!
