Make it personal

Fundraising from friends isn't hard

But some of us find asking hard.

3 Quick tips to make it easier:

1.) Tell them why this matters to you. What personal experience have you had that makes you care?

2) What difference will the money make?

a) To orangutans – e.g. £5 pays for anew tree to be planted and nurtured to maturity, which within 4 years an orangutan can build his or her nest in

b) To you? How much will it mean to you if your friends get behind you in supporting this cause?

3) You are not asking for you. You are asking for some wonderful  animals who do not have their own voice.

You are amazing. Thank you.
