MOVE FOR MELANOMA IS 10 DAYS AWAY.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
Move for Melanoma is not only a fundraiser, it’s also an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the amazing community of patients, caregivers, advocates and supporters that allow us at Save Your Skin Foundation to do the work we do. As a token of our appreciation, we’re putting on a virtual after party on Sunday, September 26 at 5pm PT, 8pm ET to celebrate all your hard work and dedication.
To learn more about the after party and how to join the Topia platform, CLICK HERE.
With only 10 days to go before Move for Melanoma, it’s the perfect time to do another round of requests for donations. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you:
- Post on social media frequently. People rarely donate the first time they are asked. By posting frequently, you’ll remind people who might have forgotten, and get better results.
- Send personal emails. Most people, when asked directly, will be happy to make a donation to a cause important to a friend or family member.
- Tell your story. This cause is important to you for a reason. People who are touched by your story will be more likely to give.
- Use an image. We all know the power images have. Consider including a photo of yourself or your family in your posts or emails.
And don’t forget to always include the URL to your fundraising page so that donations made as a result of your posts will be correctly assigned to your team.

During Move for Melanoma
During the weekend of Move for Melanoma, we encourage you to take lots of pictures of yourself and your teammates doing your activity! And if you have time, consider making a Move for Melanoma poster with your hand prints in SYSF colours. This is a fun way to get the kids involved!
Please share your pictures on your social media accounts and tag us with the hashtag #MoveForMelanoma and email them to email@example.com. As we do every year, we will compile all the pictures we get into a thank you video.
Thank you to everyone who has already raised funds. We are thrilled to have reached 50% of our goal and are confident that, with your help, we will reach $75,000.
As always, if you need help or want support with your fundraising plans, don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
