By participating in Hats On For Healthcare you are doing something really special - improving healthcare in our community.
Challenge everyone at work, even vendors or customers. Challenge friends. See who can fundraise the most.
STICKER OR BUTTON STRATEGY
If your staff or students are on-site, a fast and easy way to increase your fundraising is to include our stickers or buttons in your campaign. Give Hats On buttons and stickers as an incentive to those who are wearing a hat and making a donation!
Encourage employees to fundraise by offering prize draws to reward those who raise the most money. Have your organization sponsor prizes: merchandise, a day off, lunch with the boss, etc. There are many ways to encourage people to fundraise!
ASK YOUR BOSS TO MATCH FUNDS!
This will provide a real incentive for your employees to raise as much as they can. If matching the total amount raised by the team is not an option, ask if he/she would be willing to match what the team raises at your next fundraising event.
ASK YOUR PAYROLL DEPARTMENT
Spread the word about Hats on for Healthcare by including promotional flyers with every paycheque. The flyers should include information on how to donate and fundraising ideas.
ORGANIZE A 50/50 RAFFLE
A 50/50 raffle is an easy and fun option where the prize is CASH! Let everyone know that half of the proceeds from the tickets sales will go to the Hats On For Healthcare fundraising total and half will go to the lucky winner. Make your own raffle tickets, so you don't spend anything!
VIRTUAL FASHION SHOW
Invite your team to show off their best head attire in a virtual fashion show! Offer prizes for the most colourful, creative, or unique hats!
SOCIAL MEDIA CONTEST
Have your team share their hat look with a selfie on social media! Whoever posts a photo will be entered into a contest for a special prize. Be sure to use the hashtag #HatsOnForHealthcare when posting!
HOST A VIRTUAL LUNCH
Host a lunch party over Zoom! Order your team a lunch that they can pick up, or have delivered. Each participant can make a donation to Hats On and then enjoy their meal while showing off their best headwear.
