WHAT ARE CHARITY BIBS?
The Event promoter has reserved running slots
(Bibs) to help NGOs who register for the TMM 2023 raise funds. Participating
NGOs have a limited number of charity bib available with them. These Bibs are unique
as they can be used to register participants even after general registrations
are closed. A large number of people wish to participate in the TMM. Still, in
comparison, only a few get the opportunity as the registration slots fill up
quickly. Even so, the Charity Bibs are available to supporters who make a
donation towards the NGOs. The intent is to provide a means for NGOs to build
new relationships and raise funds for their causes.
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE CHARITY?
As and when NGOs register with United Way Mumbai they would be
listed here. Each NGO has an
independent page which details their work/project, contact details and charity
bib availability status.
HOW DO I OBTAIN A CHARITY BIB?
First, an individual need to decide the cause and select the registered
NGO they wish to support from United Way Mumbai’s website. Once this is
decided, interested runners will have to directly connect with the desired
charity organisation to secure a bib. The contact details of registered NGOs
will be available on the NGO page. The NGO will
guide you on the process to get the charity bib available with them.
- The bibs are provided to the
NGO to enable them to raise funds for their work. Each of them will have
the requirement of different donation amounts based on their project need.
Their page lists the number of bibs available with them.
- Please DO NOT DONATE
DIRECTLY on the NGO page for a bib. After you have spoken with the NGO
representative and decided the donation amount, they will share a unique
link for an online payment for the bib. Alternately, you can send a cheque
and your information to the NGO.
- Once your donation is
received, the NGO will provide you the voucher code and registration link
- Interested individuals can
also avail a bib by raising the required amount of funds for the NGO/s of
their choice until 26th December, 2022. To know more, view the fundraiser
