Thank you for participating in the 2018 MDLL Hit-a-Thon. To assist you in your child’s efforts to gather donations, MDLL has partnered with DoJiggy, an online fundraising software company that specializes in websites for pledge drives.
Each participants has their own personal fundraising page. Go to http://mdll.dojiggy.com/ng/index.cfm/ba2e486/regPages/participants/?p=b517be5e to find your player and get started with spreading the word about the 2018 Hit-a-Thon!
Each player profile has a unique user name and is associated with the email address of the parent who registered them for MDLL this season.
The following tips will help you to log-in to make any chances to your child's fundraising page. If you need assistance, please contact Mary Beth, MDLL Hit-a-Thon Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CREATE YOUR LITTLE LEAGUER(S) FUNDRAISING PAGE
Clicking on “Personalize” to start your page. Each personal fundraising page can be customized under the My Page section. The My Page tab includes a sub-menu for Settings, Statement, Pictures, Videos, and Donations.
Read more about the benefits of personalizing your fundraising efforts at the DoJiggy Facebook Fundraising Library (https://www.facebook.com/dojiggy/app_301925139822058).
Enter or edit the Personal Web Link. This is a combination of numbers and letters only and becomes part of the little leaguer’s unique web address (e.g. mdll.dojiggy.com/johnsmith). Friends and family will click on your unique web address to see your personal fundraising page and donate to your cause.
Enter the dollar amount you and your child/children wish to set as a personal Fundraising Goal. Typical Fundraising goals are $100 for MDLL major players and $75 from players below majors. The thermometer will rise as you reach this goal, so be sure to make a reasonable goal.
Enter the estimated number of feet your player is shooting to hit for.
Enter the text for a personal fundraising page statement here. This is the plea for support, so make it compelling. We hope that this space provides an opportunity to share important information in a way that creates excitement about the hit-a-thon and goals. Here is an example: “John has played in MDLL for 3 years. The league has huge impact on him and many players like him. A donation in any amount is deeply appreciated and will help the MDLL continue to help kids in and around Mason District”
The Donation Report is designed for you and your child/children to review donations and enter donations or pledges that received off-line. Parents and players can ask friends at work or school and enter their pledges here. Entering pledges on this page causes the personal fundraising thermometer to rise and reflect how close the little leaguer is in meeting the overall fundraising goal. Click on Enter personal donations to be taken to the personal fundraising website where you can enter donations in administrative mode.
Select a donation from the Donation Report and there will be an ability to send an email thank you to the donor. While the system will send an auto-generated thank you to each donor, it is always nice to receive a more personalized reply. To send a personalized thank you note to a donor or group of donors, check the donor and click on the ‘Email Thanks’ button.
Thank You Message
This is the area where you or your child/children can customize the system’s thank you message to your donors. Enter the content you want to include in donors' receipts and hit Save.
This section is where players can write and send a personalized email message to friends, family and co-workers telling them about the hit-a-thon. Your heartfelt appeal in asking them to make a pledge can have a real impact in meeting the fundraising goal.
By clicking on Import from my address book, there is an option to import address books from your Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, Plaxo, or Outlook account. Alternately, enter the email addresses for those that you wish to send the player’s website. Enter one email address per line, using this method.
Enter the Subject and customize the message in the next two fields and hit Send.
In this area you can easily change the profile or contact information, including your mailing address, Email address and phone numbers. You may also update the account username and password here. Click on Save when you’re finished updating the information.
Each personal fundraising page includes social media sharing tools in the footer. You can share the player’s personal fundraising page or other website pages with friends and family using your favorite social media tools (e.g. facebook), as outlined here.
In addition, four fundraising widgets are available. To add a personalized fundraising widget to any website or blog on the internet, just copy and paste the sample HTML code provided into your web page editor.
