ASK, ask, ask!

If you don’t ask, they won’t donate.  Number 1 reason people donate is because they are asked.  Don’t be shy, ask for a donation in support of Wounded Warriors Canada, NOW.

Don’t hesitate to contact Ride Director, Steven Topham, if you need more information or a speaker for a group of people.



Use the fundraising program on your homepage, it works.

Write a short letter/email, sharing something about yourself or the person you are riding in support of.

Tell them donations are tax deductible.

Send “THANK YOU” notes.

Add a tagline to your email signature that includes an ‘ASK’ such as; ‘Join me in supporting The Highway of Heroes Bike Ride’.
