Tails of Hope Telethon Fundraising Toolkit

Tune in to the Tails of Hope Telethon on Saturday, March 7, 2020, from 3:00 – 9:00 p.m. and watch as we broadcast live from Eastview Mall on 13 WHAM ABC, CW Rochester, and 13wham.com to help raise funds for Rochester’s pets in need! Your donations provide pets with food, shelter, veterinary services, and other forms of compassionate care. Your donation saves the lives of homeless and abused pets in our community – and you don’t have to wait until March to make an impact.

You can encourage your friends and family to raise lifesaving funds for pets in need by creating a Tails of Hope Facebook Fundraiser! (Having trouble with the link? Make sure you are already logged into Facebook.)

Just like when creating a Facebook fundraiser for your birthday to raise dollars for a cause you care about, you can create a Tails of Hope Facebook fundraiser to directly support homeless and abused pets in our community.

Getting Started

It is so easy to create your Tails of Hope Facebook fundraiser! Just click here to be directed to Facebook, where you can start building your unique fundraiser page.

Personalizing your Fundraiser

Once you have started creating your new Facebook fundraiser, you can edit it and make it your own! Feel free to add the Tails of Hope Telethon cover photo above (which you can also find on our Facebook page) update the name of your fundraiser to read: [Your Name]’s Tails of Hope Fundraiser, and edit the “about” section text. Here’s a sample that you can use, and feel free to make it your own.

Make sure you put an end-date on your fundraiser, so that it finishes on Saturday, March 7, 2020, the date of our Tails of Hope Telethon!

Facebook Fundraising Pro-Tips

Wondering how to make the most out of your new Facebook fundraiser? Here are a few tips we suggest trying out to raise funds to help pets in need.
• Share your fundraiser! Invite your friends, family members, and co-workers to make donations to your fundraiser by posting about it on your Facebook wall. You can also invite your friends to the fundraiser page, just like you could for a Facebook event. You’ll find this option on the right-hand side of your Facebook fundraiser, under a tab called “Invite Friends.”
• Post in your fundraiser frequently! Sharing stories directly from the Lollypop Farm Facebook page or posting photos of your own pets are both great ways to encourage your friends to donate. Posting more frequently as the event date approaches is a great way to ramp up the excitement, spread the word about the Tails of Hope Telethon, and help pets in need.
• Thank people who make donations to your fundraiser! This is a great way to engage your friends that are generous enough to make a gift to help pets in need, and encourage others to do so.
