7. Set up a Ramadan online fundraising page
Friends and family will be more willing to contribute to your Ramadan charity ideas if you make donating as faff-free as possible.
Make it clear who you’re fundraising for and choose a compelling header image that highlights the cause. Explain why your chosen charity needs financial help and what any funds raised will go towards. Tell an engaging story that illustrates how much good the charity does for society.
People won’t know about your Ramadan fundraiser unless you tell them about it, so remember to promote your GoFundMe page across social media and encourage others to do the same.
Successful GoFundMe Ramadan campaigns include the nearly £88,000 raised by Jamal Ahmed to sponsor iftar parcels for desperate and hungry people in Syria and the £1,600 raised by Zanjabil Qureshi to help Syrian refugees – more than triple her £500 goal.
In 2017, more than 3,500 people donated an incredible £128,000 to Shameela Islam-Zulfiqar’s Grenfell Tower appeal on GoFundMe during the last few days of Ramadan.
