Challenge: Share Your Fundraising Page on Facebook & Twitter
We recently sent everyone their first weekly "Walk for the Wild" newsletter, and it was all about fundraising. We know the idea of asking money from friends and family is scary for some, but, we promise, it *can* be fun and easy. After all, they don't call it FUNdraising for nothin'! The simplest way to ask friends and family to donate is to personalize your "My Fundraiser" page and share it on Facebook and Twitter via the handy links at the top of the page. Don't forget to personalize the message in your post, too. It's all about letting people know how much this event and cause mean to *you.* Now, start sharing!

Scrapbook Challenge: Dog photos, please!
Walking is often more fun with a friend. And, if you're a dog owner, you know that *no one* is more excited to walk with you than your pooch. While you're training for the Walk that starts on Earth Day, try increasing the distance of your daily dog walks incrementally. It's great for your dog, and great for you.

Your first Scrapbook Challenge
Getting your first donation is a big deal. So let's see you celebrate! Whether it's a big smile, a powerful stance, or a happy dance, share a celebratory photo here, along with a fundraising tip for fellow Walkers. Fundraising is a big part of this journey: It increases each Walker's impact and unlocks rewards at the $150 level and higher. The best way to boost your fundraising potential is to include a personal message about your passion for the Zoo and its mission in your email or social media post. Your friends and family will want to hear about what you care about, and many will donate in support. So share your passion!
