Make your own JustGiving page linked to the Newborns Vietnam JustGiving website – like the Cycle-a-Difference Raffle page at www.justgiving.com/CaD-Raffle – or better!
This is a great way to help you manage your personal fundraising for Cycle-a-Difference, to share what you are doing and to send your own message to potential supporters.
It doesn’t cost you anything, and it allows people to donate online and by text. It shows you at a glance how much you have raised, it has lots of management functions, for example managing the gift aid and automatically thanking donors, and it links to twitter and facebook.
We will provide you with as much help as you want to personalize your page. We can provide you with our logos and pictures, or if 'IT' really isn’t your scene – we’ll build the page for you! Just let us know what you want by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Make a simple and eye-catching home collection box. It’s very easy to make out of a Pringles box with a paper cover, which we provide, which gives information about the Cycle a Difference ride and Newborns Vietnam, and which we can personalise with your name.
Use it to put all your small change in – make them for colleagues, friends and family and ask them to do the same!
Put one on your desk at work! Ask your local cycle shop to put one on their counter! Invite all your spare change box supporters to a fun a grand counting fun night! Invite your local bank’s business manager to do the count! Tell the local press!

You will need to take your spare change to your local big supermarket and put in their change machine to convert to funds that can be used to make a donation on line via Just Giving or at the bank.
This is a very simple idea to help you raise your sponsorship. The average person spends around £5 per a day on lunch and coffees.
If you make your own lunch and go without the coffees every Wednesday for six months you would raise £130.
If 10 friends or colleagues join you in No Lunch on Wednesday you could raise £1,300! If 20 colleagues and friends join you could raise £2,600 of your £3000 sponsorship. This is such a simple idea share it with your family, if your sister, mother, aunts did their own No Lunch on a Wednesday then the skys the limit.

“Only 900 grams but I made it” designed for Newborns Vietnam by Clare Humphreys.
‘My thoughts as, I developed this drawing was to create a card that symbolizes – a journey of hope and the gift of life, my son was 3.5kilos when he was born so the title of the sketch was based on photograph of a Vietnamese premature baby that struck a chord with me. I hope the card will help the Cycle a Difference ride participants inspire their family, friends and colleagues to support them to meet their fundraising target.”
Clare is a talented freelance illustrator she trained at University of Plymouth and has recently worked on images for Juice Lubes and Velobrands. Clare is also mother to 9 month-old Thomas who is now a healthy happy baby but his first week of life was not so rosy and he spent a few days in a neonatal care unit. This experience together with her travels in Vietnam provided the inspiration for this drawing.
