Social Media Tips

  • Ask, but also inform and thank: The goal of your fundraiser is to get donations, but also be sure to first inform people about your JA Bowl-A-Thon and thank them for their support to avoid annoying them with constant asks.
  • Personalize your posts: We’ve created these post templates for your convenience, but feel free to alter these or come up with your own to add a personal touch. For example, if you’ve participated in a previous JA Bowl-A-Thons or have volunteered for JA, share your experience in a post.

Facebook

  • As of August 1st, 2018 Facebook no longer allows third party applications to automate posting to your page or timline, therefore you need to copy and paste our Facebook templates. However, you can still share a link directly to your personal and team JABowlAThon.org fundraising pages by logging into your personal dashboard and clicking the "Share Event" tab. 
  • Check out our complete list of Facebook post templates.
