Giving in memory can be an opportunity to leave a lasting memorial to somebody who loved motorbikes or supported our cause.
Giving to Two Wheels helps ensure healthcare gets to those who need it in some of the poorest and most remote parts of the world using motorcycles.
How to give in memory
If you would like to raise in memory for loved one, here are some tips to make it as easy as possible.
- On the text message, email or printed funeral or memorial invitation, simply ask for donations to Two Wheels for Life instead of flowers. Let people know if they should bring cash or cheques on the day or add a link to your online fundraising page if you have made one.
- Add our charity number (Registered Charity No. 1169942) and website address (twowheelsforlife.org) so people know it’s a valid and certified charity.
- Make sure to say it is completely optional so people don’t feel obliged.
- Find out how to set up an online donation page with Just Giving. This is a widely used tool that many are already familiar with and Two Wheels for Life are already set up as a charity on JustGiving which makes this easy to do.
- If you’re taking cheques or cash you can simply leave a box or tub out with “Donations’ written on it in the space people will be after the formal part of the day so that you don’t have to think about it throughout the day. Add the name of the charity so people know what to write on cheques.
