I need advice because I'm new to fundraising!
I work at my local humane society and a donor has agreed to match all donations from now until the end of the year. So, I was trying to think of ways to invite my Facebook friends to be extra giving this holiday season! Since I just picked up a running hobby this summer, I'd like to use that (and as an added bonus, it'd give me motivation to keep exercising in the cold weather), but I don't know how.
I was thinking maybe of inviting people to pledge to donate a certain amount for every mile I run for the month of December? Remembering that I'm still a beginner so I only expect to run maybe 4-5 miles a week haha. What do you think of that idea? If it's a good idea, how should I go about carrying it out? And if it's lame, do you have any other suggestions?

Sure you could do that :D
Things like a facebook group or also always a nice idea. Of course, when it's about giving money, you'll need to get peoples' confidence so you'll need to clearly mention for which good aim you're doing it.
Otherwise people my think you're after their money :-(0
