What is Raise Love?

Raise Love is a fundraising platform that allows participants to do what they love and help raise money for RMHC Global and local RMHC Chapters. Funds will help keep families with sick children stay near to each other and the care they need.

How can I get involved?

There are a lot of ways to get involved!

  1. Start a fundraiser: Whether it’s just you or an entire team, pick an activity you love, set a goal and call on your friends and family for their support.
  2. Join a fundraiser: Know a friend who has already started a fundraiser? Join their team, start fundraising and help them hit their goal!
  3. Donate: Whether it’s a gift to a friend’s fundraiser, a team or to RMHC, every donation big and small impacts the families who stay at RMHC in a positive way.
  4. Spread the word: The more you chat, tweet, share and post about Raise Love with friends and family, the more families we can help keep together.

How do I get the word out about my fundraiser?

When you create your fundraiser, we’ll give you all the tools you need to spread the word. Everything from emails to your very own custom badge that you can share with friends and family on social media. Of course, selfies, tweets, posts and good old-fashioned word of mouth work as well.

How do I join a friend or family member’s fundraiser?

It’s easy! Just search under the "Find a fundraiser." Then when you find what you’re looking for, click the “Join the Team” and follow the simple instructions provided.

What if I don’t meet my goal?

All that matters is that you try your best. Any amount of money that you raise doing what you love can help us keep families together.
