What Are Giving Campaigns?

Apparel-based giving campaigns are fundraisers directly connected to Barbells for Boobs. These campaigns display an official badge that lets your buyers know that all proceeds raised from your sales will be sent to our organization. Setting your campaign as a Giving Campaign builds trust with your buyers and takes the responsibility off you to handle funds. Barbells for Boobs takes care of all the work for you and ensures the money you raise gets exactly where it needs to go.

How to Set Up Your Giving Campaign

Setting up a Giving Campaign is simple and straightforward. Let’s take a closer look at each of the steps.

Create your design

The very first step is designing your merch! It’s important to ensure your design reflects Barbells for Boobs and/or why you are passionate about fundraising for this particular cause. Once your design is finalized, you’ll select products and color options from our product catalog. Consider your target audience when choosing what products to offer for this campaign and include various options.

Helpful tip: when selecting product colors, look for hues that contrast well with your design. Think dark colors for light designs and light colors for dark designs. Giving Campaigns feature striking imagery and bold text, so pick product colors that let your designs shine.

Get Your Items Ready to Sell

After you have solidified all aspects of your design, you’ll navigate to the second step in the setup funnel that allows you to set the prices for your items, estimate your number of sales, and decide how you would like your orders to be sent out.

Helpful tip: setting your orders to be sent out in batches increases your profit and therefore increases the amount you can donate to your chosen organization. The more you sell per batch, the more funds you collect per item.

Set Your Campaign as a Fundraiser and Select an Organization

Next, you will be prompted to choose whether you would like to sell for profit or sell for fundraising. In this case, you will select ‘Fundraise’ and then select that you would like to send your payout directly to Barbells for Boobs.

Then, use the search bar to find and select the organization you want to raise money for. As long as the organization can be found on Charity Navigator, you’ll be able to find it in our search tool. You can search for the organization using its name or EIN.

Show Your Community Who You’re Fundraising For

The next step will be to customize your campaign page. This is your opportunity to share your story, talk about why you decided to launch this Giving Campaign, and why this cause matters to you. You can also add photos and videos to the campaign page to enhance your story.

Since your Giving Campaign is directly linked to Barbells for Boobs, your page will automatically display that information for your supporters. Your community can learn more about the cause and the organization by clicking the green heart next to the nonprofit’s name. Clicking the heart will take them to a page where they can see the organization’s location, EIN, and verification status.

Helpful tip: Including a call-to-action in the description tagline and additional information in the ‘About this campaign’ section of your page helps to further legitimize your Giving Campaign and fundraising efforts.

How to Promote Your Giving Campaign

As soon as you launch your Giving Campaign, it’s time to start sharing and promoting it to your community. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you get started.

Share Your Giving Campaign With Your Community

It’s important to make sure everyone in your circle knows about your Giving Campaign. Once your campaign launches, we recommend making a dedicated post about it across all your different platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Be sure to include the link for your campaign page in your social media bios, so people have an easy way to access your page. You should also text your campaign link to your friends and family so they can share it with everyone in their circles.

Don’t be afraid to get creative and have fun with how you share your campaign! The more fun you have with it, the more people will gravitate to your promotions.

Give Your Community Updates on Your Giving Campaign

It’s always a good idea to remind people about your campaign. Share about it frequently and let people know how your campaign is doing. Are you close to reaching your fundraising goal? Share the exciting news! Keeping your community involved will inspire them to support your campaign and maybe even inspire them to help you reach more people to raise more money.

Thank Your Community for Their Support

You wouldn’t be able to reach your fundraising goal without the overwhelming support of your community. Remember that and thank them for their help and involvement.

Ask buyers to share photos of themselves rocking your merch. You could even create a specific hashtag for your fundraiser if you wanted to and ask your buyers to include it in their posts. If they give their consent, re-share their photos and posts to celebrate them and show your gratitude! It also helps to get more people excited about supporting your campaign if they see your merch worn and loved.

No matter how much money your Giving Campaign raises, count it a success! Thank your community for helping you donate money to Barbells for Boobs.

Celebrate big time with your community if you reach or surpass your fundraising goal! It truly takes a village to achieve something like that.
