Steps to Success

How to Help Save Lives: Be a Pledge-Raising Walker!

  1. Sign-up to help save a life! Also, learn more here about who Walk supports!
  2. Create your own online fundraising page on FundEasy (by completing your online registration). You can access your FundEasy page later by going to https://fundeasy.com and clicking “Log In”. If you do not know you log-in information or are having trouble accessing your account, e-mail Christina at christina@newlifesolutions.org with your full name and the e-mail address you used to sign-up.
  3. OR to raise pledges offline, either download a Pledge Form to get started now or ask your church to send you one (a church Liaison should have brought pledge forms and other materials there). If your church isn’t involved in the Walk For Life yet and doesn’t have a Liaison, click here. You can also call us at 727-216-1410 and we can mail you one.
  4. Set a fundraising goal! Pick a prize you’d like to earn (or aim high and earn multiple prizes), and go for it! You can check out this year’s prizes by clicking here!
  5. Start asking for sponsors: ask everyone you know! Friends, family, co-workers, EVERYONE! You can call, text, e-mail, or contact them on social media! Simply commit to asking just one person a day to sponsor you, or set aside 10 minutes each day to ask for pledges. Did you know that you can raise $250 by asking 10 people to pledge you $25; or by asking 25 people for just $10 each (and you earn a cool t-shirt too!!)
  6. If you are raising pledges online, be sure to share the link to your FundEasy page via text, or on social media (Facebook, Instagram & Twitter). If you see our promotional posts on Facebook, share them! Twitter? Retweet! You can use the hashtag #givelifeWFL on your own posts and pictures to spread the word too!
  7. Remember that you DO NOT have to collect any money! We will collect pledge payments from your sponsors AFTER the Walk For Life! If someone does give you money, mark on your pledge form that they have paid and mail a check along with your corresponding pledge form to us at 1910 East Bay Drive, Largo, FL 33771 or bring it to your Walk site on Walk Day, Saturday, May 8, 2021!
  8. Since this year the Walk For Life has a virtual component, you do not have to attend  the event at a Walk site on Walk Day – you can walk on your own – anytime, anywhere – it all still counts! You will help save babies. You will change lives. We will be grateful! If you have sponsors, you can mail in your pledge form along with any checks to Walk For Life, 1910 East Bay Dr, Largo, FL 33771. You can still earn prizes, and even earn membership into the Life Saver Dinner Club if you raise $1,500 or more in pledges!
