The Dry July campaign
We've got a number of tools to add to the Dry July challenge, help with fundraising or help out with a much needed night off for a special occasion!
Taking on the challenge of an alcohol-free month is no mean feat. Birthdays, weddings and bar mitzvahs may all have slipped your mind when signing up to Dry July.
With this in mind, we have introduced the hallowed 'Golden Ticket' - a Wonka-esque pass to the magical kebab-scented world of a good night out.
Of course, we recognise the temptation of our Golden Tickets; however we wouldn't want the good people participating in Dry July, or their donors, to think they can easily have a night off the wagon.
So how much are those drinks worth to you?
We are giving people the opportunity to donate what they see to be a 'fair and just' amount for a Golden Ticket, minimum cost being $25.00.
On completion of the donation via a participant's profile page, the Dry July'er will be emailed their 'Golden Ticket' stating the date they are entitled to drink.
Remember that the idea of Dry July is abstinence. Not absinth. The Golden Ticket is there for 'emergencies', but we'd prefer you to raise money by staying true to the challenge.
Head To Head
Batman versus the Joker. Nadal against Federer. Ali versus Foreman.
Life would be so much more tedious without a rivalry to spice it up, which is why Dry July encourages its participants to vie their way through the month with a Head to Head challenge.
Head to Head challenges pit friend against friend, snooty boss versus lowly employee, and team versus team to see who can raise the most money. And best of all, you can also set up a penalty forfeit for the loser.
That's right, the winner gets both bragging rights and an opportunity to lord it over his or her unsuccessful rival.
To set up a Head to Head challenge, log in to your Dry July account area and choose your rival.
Going Dry this July means your non-DJ friends will no doubt use your new-found sobriety to their advantage and insist you cart their partying carcasses around town. We'll leave altruism to the meerkats.
One good turn deserves another and in return for your willingness to play 'driving Miss Daisy' for a month, get your friends to show their gratitude by asking them to donate to you as their Designated Dryver®.
The Designated Dryver® feature is set up via your logged in account area. Here you can set the date you'll be driving and email four friends you are happy to drive on the night. They then head to your Designated Dryver® page (part of your profile page), select a seat and make a donation in support of your Dry July.
