Motivate your team!
Being part of a team for an event is motivating and a lot more fun. It can also be a great way to combine your fundraising efforts.
Below are some tips to help your team stay organised and motivated as you count down the weeks to the Walk for Prems event.
Plan your fundraising goal and strategy with your team
Once you have registered your Walk for Prems team, it’s a good idea to plan the most suitable fundraising goal and strategy with your team members. Encourage your team to fundraise, make it fun, give them weekly targets to reach. For instance, the first team member to reach a set target gets a big hug from you! Or shout their next coffee. Give your team words of encouragement.
Use email and social media
Use email and social media to share your team’s fundraising page to your family, friends and colleagues and include a brief note to let people know why your team has chosen to raise funds and participate in Walk for Prems. Providing a direct link is a great way to not only collect sponsors for your team, but also to encourage others to join your team.

Set challenges for your team
Setting challenges for team members to see who can raise the most in a specific period, is also a good motivational activity.
Encourage team members to become a Walk Warrior
Life’s Little Treasures Foundation loves to recognise its heroes and this year we are once again acknowledging our Walk for Prems Warriors.
Encourage team members to raise $600 and become a Walk for Prems Warrior; all Warriors receive a limited edition t-shirt.

Share your story
If you are a parent of a prem baby, or if you were born premature or sick, sharing your personal story encourages others to join with you, whilst also raising awareness of Life’s Little Treasures Foundation. We would love to hear your stories either via social media using the #walkforprems2021 tag or if you are not online, email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THANK every person who sponsors or donates to you
The most important tip though, is to remember to THANK every person who sponsors or donates to you. By helping you fundraise they in turn are helping support more families with premature or sick babies across Australia.
