Fundraising Teams

Hi [accessally_user_firstname],

If you’ve registered for Mindful in May, but haven’t created a fundraising team you can do it retrospectively by following these steps:

  • Visit this page on our partner fundraising platform mycause
  • If you’ve never done Mindful in May before you’ll need to register a new account (if you’ve done Mindful in May before you will have an account with mycause and you simply need to login – just click “forgot password” to get a new password for your account)
  • Choose fundraise as a “team”
  • Then choose “create a team”
  • Then you can share the url of your fundraising page with friends and family who can directly donate to your page by clicking “donate now”
  • If someone wants to donate AND join the actual online Mindful in May program they will need to register through first.

Dear [insert name],

I have recently signed up to participate in Mindful in May ( the world's largest global online mindfulness fundraising initiative.

Mindful in May is like a fun run for the mind and so I am committing to meditate for ten minutes each day this May to help raise money for clean water in developing countries. As part of this, I would love your support to raise money for those in need of clean safe drinking water.

You can sponsor me here [insert your fundraising page]. Every $50 dollars I raise brings clean water to one person for life! 

So far Mindful in May has raised over $600,000 for charity:water and given 12,000 people access to clean water. You can see the projects they have supported here []. I am sure you will agree that there is still so much that needs to be done to help those less fortunate which is why I am fundraising this year.

Thanks for your support - I am striving for a clear mind for myself and clean water for others.
