Hosting an event on the day you launch your campaign builds excitement for your fundraiser. Oftentimes, momentum is the force that differentiates a moderately successful campaign from one that goes viral. The more “buzz” the better, so organizing events such as a beach party, a barbecue or a dinner can give your fundraiser the strong start it needs. You don't have to put on anything too elaborate—the point is to raise money, not to spend it—but a party gets the word out while allowing you to generate awareness and support for your cause. Invite guests via online invitations and ask them to share your fundraiser's link on all of their social media accounts.
