Festive Fundraising
December 1-22, 2023

Help us help people with CF, and help yourself to some holiday gifts! Our Festive Fundraising will live up to the name. We’ve got fun challenges throughout the campaign and so many opportunities to fill your own stocking!

You can fundraise as an individual and/or a team – there are prizes for both (keep scrolling to check it out).

QUESTIONS: Check our FAQ at the bottom of the page!

Where do funds go?

M4CF/CFLF uses funds raised through this campaign to support programs including BreatheStrong exercise grants and BreatheStrong+.

We provide exercise grants for people living with CF in the United States. Grants are available for up to $750/year to help with costs associated with staying active including gym memberships, home equipment, sports fees, activity classes and more!

We’ve got a donation match!

All funds donated during Festive Fundraising will be matched up to $2,500, sponsored in part by Elf on the Shelf! Matched donations are INCLUDED in totals for fundraising and prize considerations!

Who’s in the lead? Check the leaderboard in Charity Footprints and look at fundraising tab!

INDIVIDUAL INCENTIVES

All funds raised go toward your total. Share your Charity Footprints fundraising page, create and share a facebook or instagram fundraiser and we’ll apply the funds toward your fundraiser. AND….we have a $2500 match – YES, those funds go toward your incentives, too!

  • Raise $150 to receive a BreatheStrong+ convertible sling. It’s strong and big enough to carry your phone while you’re walking, running or just out and about.
  • Raise $350 to earn a 20oz Hidrate BreatheStrong+ water bottle. Have you seen these? Download the hidrate app, tap the app as you drink throughout the day – the bottom of the bottle lights up to remind you to hydrate!
    Raise $650 and we’ll send you a pair of Shokz Open Move. These use bone conduction technology so you hear crystal clear music but leave your ears completely open so you’re aware of your surroundings. Lightweight, comfortable and water resistant. Santa wants you to have these!

TOP INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISING PRIZE

Raise the most funds during the campaign period and Santa will fulfill your Amazon wishlist up to $250!! Did you raise funds earlier in the year? Those will count toward all your prizes and incentives, too!

Here’s the fine print:

  • If the individual who raises the most is also the team captain of a winning team, they will have their choice of prize, and the other prize will go to the 2nd place winner.
  • The 1st place individual prize can only be awarded if the raised amount exceeds $1,000. The 1st place team fundraising prize can only be awarded if the raised amount exceeds $2,500.
