First off, make a donation yourself, however small. This shows you’re committed to cause and others will then follow in your footsteps.

Next, email friends and family explaining why you started your Beam fundraiser and sharing the link to your page. We’ve found that the more personal you are with your message, the more responsive people will be.

You can also easily share the link to your fundraiser on social media - spreading the word early and often! You can also post the link to your fundraiser URL in your bio on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Why not add it to your email signature too?

Also, don't be afraid to send a few follow-up emails to your family and friends - they'll appreciate the reminder to donate to your campaign before it closes.
