FebFast is better with friends. Your friends, whānau and colleagues will be key contributors to your FebFast campaign, so it’s really important to keep them involved.
One of the best ways to do this is to host an alcohol free FebFast event. There are heaps of different ways to approach these, but they’re all opportunities to encourage your guests to donate to your campaign.
It’s win-win for everyone; your guests get to have a great time at the event you host, and you get the joy of making a difference in the lives of those New Zealanders who are most at risk of alcohol harm.
Don’t be shy about asking for a donation. If you’re nervous about asking for money, try giving everyone an envelope as they arrive, pass round a homemade donation box, or open your FebFast page on a laptop or phone.
Make sure you say thanks, and follow-up with a note about how much is raised.
Tell people how the funds will make a difference for young New Zealanders – everybody loves knowing their money will be going to a good cause.
If you want to fancy up your alcohol-free occasion, they’ve got the decorations for you! Below you'll find printable templates with some great ways to spruce up your event. Hang some FebFast bunting, and let people know what’s in the delicious drinks you’ve mixed for them.
