Top tips for sharing your occasion book and fundraising on your special day

  • Consider being the first to add a dedication on your occasion book - perhaps just a thank you to your friends and family for coming and / or celebrating with you. You could also add the first donation yourself to kick-start the fundraising
  • Encourage guests who can’t make it to your event to contribute to your online occasion book. Sharing special photos and messages and making a donation is the perfect way to say Happy Birthday or Congratulations if they can't say it in person
  • Note on your invitations that Meningitis Now is your chosen charity and include your personalised URL on the invite. Encourage family and friends to celebrate with you through your online occasion book
  • Display your personalised URL somewhere at your event for guests to see and engage with
  • Mention Meningitis Now in your 'thanks for coming' speech. Announce how much you’ve raised so far and thank everyone who has added to your online occasion page. Encourage guests to dedicate if they haven't already - these are memories for you to keep
  • Consider sharing your online occasion book across your social media channels on the day of and leading up to your event and encourage messages, photos and donations
