Day 1: Donate $50 to yourself. $50
Day 2: Ask your housemate/spouse/partner to donate $50 $100
Day 3: Ask two relatives to donate $50 each $200

Top fundraisers have found letter writing campaigns very successful. Write a letter or email friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors to let them know what you’re doing and ask them to donate to you. Tell your story, why you are doing the Canary Challenge, where the money goes and why this is important to you. Remember: always send a thank you note to your donors.
