Fundraiser Ideas

  • Put on your fundraiser and don’t forget to advertise it.
  • Send the money raised to LMSDR
  • We will issue you a thank you letter with the amount donated and our nonprofit ID for your tax purposes.


Facebook fundraisers are easy to make — they even include a designated landing page. To create one, click Fundraisers in the left sidebar of the Facebook home page. Then use Facebook’s fundraiser creation tool to indicate specifics about the fundraiser, such as duration and fundraising goal, and your fundraiser will be immediately published on the site.


Crowdrise fundraising pages are the social nonprofit sites by Go Fund Me. They offer some advantages. Money donated on the site goes directly to the charity. The charity gets an instant notice when someone donates and helps you send a personalized thank you letter to each one. The donors are listed on the site to inspire others. You can write your story and make your call to action with photos and videos too.


The Gross Cupcake Challenge for the Cure
Put FUN back in FUNdraising and raise an enormous amount of donations for LMS research!

Here’s the challenge. Ask your Facebook friends to pledge a donation to LMSDR and you will eat a gross cupcake and put the video up for them to watch on a specific date. They can make a donation on your Facebook page or you can set up a Crowdrise page . Set a goal of how much you think you can raise. People like to help reach goals.

On your specified day…
Have a friend make a mystery gross (but edible) cupcake for you.
Video you eating the cupcake. Ham it up! Buckets and a glass of water are allowed. You must eat the entire cupcake. Hey, it’s for a great cause!
Post your video on Facebook. Don’t forget to post it to the LMSDR Facebook Group too.
Get creative! Have the entire family eat a gross cupcake together or eat it without hands… the funnier, the better.

Examples of what to put inside the cupcakes are: Sour pickles, hot red chili peppers, a raw egg, unripe persimmon, raw lemon, cooked spinach, rotten banana, cat food…. or top it with gobs mayo or horseradish with anchovies on top. We can’t wait to see what you get!

Ask all your friends to do it too…
