What do you and Betty White have in common?


A quick look at some stellar campaigns to start 2022 off right.

Betty White was a long-time supporter of The Seeing Eye, an organization that trains seeing-eye dogs. Her passion for this mission fueled a lifetime of awareness and giving. Then, that passion translated to honor Betty after she passed away.

Your passionate supporters and fundraisers can make a meaningful difference for your organization, just like Betty.

Today, we want to highlight some campaigns on JustGiving that have knocked it out of the park in these first two months. We are hopeful that these unique and passionate campaigns and pages help the creative juices start to flow when we think about all the creative ways to incorporate JustGiving into your fundraising strategy for 2022.

Cooks with Collars – Diocese of Allentown


This unique campaign features so much fun when you combine a virtual cooking competition, videos of each priest’s kitchen skills, and a fundraiser that you vote with your dollars! Parish priests and congregation members include a video of their recipe. These videos often come with a story and a laugh as well. Voting ends on February 28 with the winner announced on March 1, Fastnacht Day, an annual celebration the day before Ash Wednesday.

Betty White was a long-time supporter of The Seeing Eye, an organization that provides training for seeing-eye dogs for the blind and visually impaired.

The goal was to raise enough to be able to name a dog after Betty White, but with the outpouring of support, they increased the goal to help name the dog quarters in their new building.

The campaign highlights the support Betty provided the organization for over 40 years. They finished the page with “As they said on Golden Girls, thank you for being a friend.”
