If you’re one of those people who dislikes their own birthday because it’s too much attention, then a fundraiser birthday party is for you. Basically, you use your birthday as an excuse to raise awareness and money for The Spastic Paraplegia Foundation. You could limit the invite list to your friend and family, or you could open it up to co-workers, community volunteers and even more. Here are your three tips to throwing yourself a fundraiser birthday party:
Digitally fundraise—For those family members and friends who feel uncomfortable sending money in the mail, set up an account on a fundraising website for people to donate online. You could set it up through Razoo, Punchbowl or even link them to the donate page on the SPF website that allows your friends and family to make their donation quick and easy. Here is the link: http://sp-foundation.org/get-involved/donate.html
Showcase HSP or PLS—The most important part of your fundraiser birthday party is educating your guests about HSP and/or PLS. HSP: http://sp-foundation.org/understanding-pls-hsp/hsp.html
