Riley created her project to help fund international travel and race expenses for both her and her coach. So far, the project has amassed more than $24,000 in donations, enabling her to travel to Japan and Europe for the international season. 

“This is just to give us a little bit of financial freedom whilst we’re over there to get rid of that stress.” 

Riley's 3 Keys to Success

  1. Create a memorable story.

  2. Use visuals to build on that story.

  3. Be authentic and true to yourself.

To help with asking for donations, Riley took a unique approach by creating a pamphlet which contained “a bit about her, her journey, and how to donate”, including a QR code that linked to her ASF project. This was handed to any potential donors in an effort to stay front of mind.
