Of course you’ll say “please” when asking for donations, but don’t forget to thank your donors. You may want to send them a simple note or a photo of you wearing your Ramah Bike Ride jersey on your bike. (We’ll make sure to send you a picture!) Make your donors a part of your experience, and they’ll feel even better about the part they’re playing in helping you to help those with special needs.
Continue to communicate with your donors throughout your training, and be sure to write to them after you complete the Ride. Let them know how successful the trip was, what you experienced and, again, thank them for their support. There are dozens of ways to thank your donors and keep them involved. We encourage you to be creative and have fun letting your donors know how much you appreciate their support!
