Spending ten minutes online to publicise your event can make a huge difference. Use websites such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace to tell your friends about what you’re doing and why to encourage them to show their support.
You could also display posters and leaflets in your workplace, school, library and local shops - the list is endless. Or why not send out personal invites to make people feel extra special? Talking to your colleagues, friends and family about your event is a great way to spread enthusiasm and encourage people to get involved, you can also ask them to spread the word too!
Getting in touch with your local paper or radio station is a great way to publicise your event. Make sure you give the media enough notice to cover the story (generally about two weeks prior to the event), and send them lots of details about what’s happening, who will be attending, why you are holding it, how much you hope to raise, when/where it is happening, and your contact details. For more information, read Promote Your Event.
